snowload

10

Week one of Tiny House Build complete. I’m building three of these for a startup. The first is a simple box with verticle shiplap and a flat roof.

The framing is non tradition. Similar to Advanced Framing, with a few differences. Snowload is not a huge concern with a building this small. We have to be very weight concious, so all most jack studs were 86ed except on the largest window. There are no headers above a few of the smaller windows, just a single 2 x6 nailer.

Lot’s more fun challenges to come. will update next friday. check out my instagram greencarpentry for daily pics
