Red Cedar Siding and Trim

It’s time for another update – we want to share our excitement with the world.  It’s hard to believe how far we have come after so many years of planning and dreaming.  Our own tiny house is looking more and more beautiful than we ever imagined.  Since pictures are worth a thousand words I will keep these lines short.  🙂

The siding and trim is completed, the door finally installed, and even a little storage box in front was added which will protect our spigot and electrical box from the elements.  Our contractor’s capabilities and love for detail has exceeded all our expectations.  We will vouch for them if somebody else in Connecticut wants to have professionals build their dream tiny home!

Our next post will probably show our house with roof and skylights – and maybe even its first journey across New England’s roads!

    I’m so happy I found your blog! My fiancé and I live in Maine and are researching for our own tiny home. Good luck on the rest of your journey! Looking forward to seeing the rest of the process and your finished home! 🙂

    Hi! I was just curious, how are these holding up to road debris and highway speed wind? Thanks!

    • the shingles have held up really well during the couple hundred miles we have towed the house. even after doing 70 in light rain, there was no sign of water inside.

        Were there any extra precautions in attaching the cedar shingles (extra nails, shorter courses, adhesives), or are they installed normally?

      • our shingles were 24 inches long and installed normally with a 5 inch exposure. no adhesives or extra nails. they have held up wonderfully in the couple hundred miles we have towed it
