OT - when I was pregnant and had to work on repairing some walls which *likely* had layers of lead paint in them, I used my scuba regulator and a long hose to a scuba tank so I *knew* I was breathing good air! It may not have been the most comfortable option, but it worked and it wasn't any less comfortable than many masks I've tried before or since.

Yes - please protect your lungs - you've only got one set of them and they need to last your lifetime!

Congratulations on getting that roof on!

So i guess this needs a bit of an update. Weather has changed quite alot and i am now glad the roof is on and i recently got the tyvek on so i can start on putting the insulation into the walls.

I also need to start spending some time on how i would like to wire the walls. The main wire is in, i need to figure out and buy 12v car socket plugs.

The windows are in. It required a lot of tuck tape for the windows!

Built a skiddable wood shed for this bb!

I have my door half way done now.

I am currently trying to source some cedar logs for my board on board siding.


Thomas rubino has my secondary air supply and door being sent to me! thanks thomas! You can check out more RMH supplies Here

 

Just basically waiting to get my chimney installed before i start on the masonry heater. I ended up finding a ceramic glass top at a restore place. They gave it to me for free!!

thanks!

So i have to say building the structure and getting the skid/floor/walls/roof on was fairly easy. I really do not have a time frame for that. Really busy summer and that was the last thing i wanted to keep track of.

There is a saying that 80% of the work takes 20% of the time. And 20% of the work takes 80% of the time. This is totally true!

It will be hard for me to give an estimate on this, as i have also cut the lumber for my building.


If i were to guess how long it would take me. And if everything was here at my disposal. ( i live on a remote island and need to either barge big items over from the main island or go over myself and do the shopping, I avoid this like the plague so it can sometimes take me weeks to get a simiple thing done)
So if everything was at my disposal up until this point it would be about 6 week of effort in my opinion.  Keep in mind i have not done this before and have been spending quite alot of time thinking thru how to do all of it.

It has been a busy ass year, with my partner going out to the fairy creek blockades for months at a time. Needing to manage the garden/goats/chickens/working/ building a tiny house/relationship.

The other part is most of my friends are also just as busy as i am with their own houses!

Without further ado, Here are some updates:

-My friend had a 20" Perfection propane stove for sale which i bought. it is about 70+ years old

-I have wired up the house and now have all of the insulation in the walls.

-I had a friend help me with putting the chimney thru the roof. So i can now start on my masonry heater.

-I started on some of the siding for the building. I ran out of lumber. Cedar is becoming scares on the coast here.

Yesterday i was helping a friend beach comb the shore in order to find some douglas fir logs for his timber framed house. We managed to find a small amount of cedar logs which i will be spending today trying to bring to the shore!
