It has been tiny steps over the last two weeks. A little stomach flu wiped out the first weekend in April. I did make some progress in getting the outside siding. I am pretty excited about the Cedar siding. It is 6 inch T&G that I am going to install with the rough side out. I got it from a guy in Olympia who runs a home business of wood broker, he buys from regional mills and get's anything that is not number one's. These are number two or better.
I am going to take the smooth side and use it for the Bathroom. This is going to be stained with some natural tongue oil. This should be a good look and keep to my funky style for the Mini Mobile Cottage.
This past week has been a bit of a challenge that I was not looking for. I have a real tiny house of the floating style that lived in Alameda, CA. It needed to come up to Olympia and get dropped in the water so that I can move it up to Tacoma for a friend to use for the summer (while paying for moorage!). This should be a win/win for all involved. The trick was to move the boat up on my own without paying a company to drive it up. This posed a bit of a challenge that my friend John Hubbard jumped at a chance for a road trip. I drove down from Olympia with rented trailer (craigslist) and a borrowed truck (thanks Stet). Got down there and did not feel safe about driving it back up to Oly without a bigger truck.
It is my goal to have no more pictures of boats on the blog. I am expecting to be able to spend all day next Sunday on the Mini Mobile Cottage. SIDING on my Cottage, really excited about that!
