Hit a setback when handsome groom pointed out that rice doesn’t require preservatives to travel. Grains generally don’t. That deflates my USP. I can probably still use the local rice angle. It’s so rich and interesting! But the why … Or maybe I need a whole new USP. I really liked the weird grain. Also,… Continue reading USP Deflation
Have gotten serious again about coursework after the hiatus for building, the layoff, and Tiny House Jamboree. Have signed up for Joshua Boswell’s Simple Path to Success: 12 Weeks to Winning Clients for a Lifetime. It’s kind of intense. Right now it’s Foundations week, so I’ve sent in the questionnaire, obtained the required books and… Continue reading Amp it Up!
Well, okay! Very busy couple of weeks. I photo blogged them in this publicly viewable Facebook album. As it stands, the subfloor, floor, and walls are all up and attached. Most of the roof panels are on the top but not yet adjusted, glued, and screwed. I have to wash all the dust and grit… Continue reading It’s up!
I’m stumped. I thought the trailer in my kit would be an Iron Eagle tiny house trailer, which comes with flanges on the wheel wells for flashing. This is a pretty big deal in a spot that can attract water and send it under the sheathing to do damage. A flange helps very much the… Continue reading Working Around the Wheel Wells

I don’t really want to talk about when I received them and after what problems. But the Papaw’s Cabin at Tennessee… Continue reading Wherein it All Gangs Agley

But the major things are taken care of. That also means Hilda the work truck gets a break. I’ve been burning… Continue reading Milestone
This is the third or fourth eighth iteration of the electrical plan, but the first version to be fully digital. I’m using a Progressive Dynamics PD4045 power distribution panel to serve these circuits. This is the go-to panel in the build-it-yourself travel trailer world. I am not thrilled with the location, but hard pressed to think… Continue reading Electrical Layout

Bit by bit I’m getting more accomplished on that giant list. I’m also remembering more things and adding them to the list. That’s the way of it, right? I’ve added to the list a DC adapter for my digital camera so I can stake it out at the corner of the workspace for time lapse… Continue reading Dizzying Progress

These are notes to self, but if you see something obviously crazy. please feel free to contact me through that little contact form at the right or the comments form below the entry. Ditto for questions, comments, whatever. BTW, if… Continue reading List List List
