It Has Arrived

It's here!  The barn-shed-cabin or whatever I am going to call it, is here.  The delivery driver made it up the road without a problem and was already backed in and ready to unload when I drove up.


It was a long and careful process of unloading and leveling but the driver was very good at his job.


 All set up.  Now, so much to do!  Tie-downs, skirting, steps will be the top 3 on my to-do list.  Oh, and gutters.  I hope gutters aren't too hard.


It was toasty warm in the loft.  Not much head room.  If I had ordered this shed custom, I would have had the loft floors lowered.


The to-do list for the interior is too long to list.  Insulation, electricity, plumbing, drywall...


Between the mobile home and the barn-shed will be my snake-free area (I hope).  I need some ground cover delivered, maybe mulch or bark and rock for where we park the cars.

It's all coming together!

I'm new to your blog and love it. I'm addicted to Tiny House on HGTV. Can't wait to follow along with what you make of yours. Kim

I wanna do this so bad! Gonna follow you and see how it turns out. What's your expected final cost? How exciting! Congrats! Lisa

Lizzie, I don't plan to sleep up there anyway. The dogs can't climb the ladder and I couldn't sleep with them whimpering down below.

Thanks, 444. It is cute. I hate to mess it up with all of my amateur building skills.

Daizy said...

Welcome, Kim! I'm afraid it will take me a while to put things together. I wish I could take a couple months off work like other people did.

Daizy said...

Welcome, Lisa! The building was $8,000 and I expect another $8,000 for basic insulation, electric, plumbing, fixtures and appliances. I could easily spend another $10k on upgrades, covered porches, etc... but that will have to wait until later.

This is so exciting to watch and live vicariously through your progress!

Thanks, Beth! I hope I get enough done before school starts in July so that we are comfortable. It is fun to see it finally happening.
