First Wall Pre-Cut, Laid Out, and Assembled

November 4, 2013

In the interest of keeping our structure level and square we cut all of our studs with stops so corresponding components would be precisely the same lengths. So much of the time spent building a home is in the design and planning process. Once all the prep work is done, putting the parts together goes relatively quickly and is a real treat.

Here you can see the first wall assembled and ready to raise. We are including 4 x 6 cedar timbers in the design and they will be weight-bearing. This requires we build them into the framing. Notice the three windows also! There’s going to be a lot of light in this Wishbone Tiny Home.

Here’s a detail of the first purlin. This will extend out over the porch area and support a gabled entry.
