But now to the exciting part, the pictures.
As for stats for the roof for those in the tiny house planning stage, the "pitch" on the steep section of the roof 42º, and 17º for the loft dormers. I put the word pitch in parenthesis because usually it's measured something like 12/12 or 6/12, not in degrees, but that's how I ended up doing it. And for my gable ends, the bottom of my ridge board is 3' 2" above my wall which happens to be about 7' 9" if I remember correctly? I remember when I was in my planning stages I ate up all the information I could, so I'm hoping this will be helpful for someone in the future.
It's funny how getting the roof on has actually made the space feel bigger, or maybe a more accurate word is grander? When I do walk into it now I don't feel a crushing small space like most people would expect, I just feel something a little different. I think most people would use the word "bigger" to describe this felling but I really think it just feels grand. That's what sets tiny houses apart from just a regular 8'x18' box(a.k.a the size of some bedrooms). Tiny houses are small, but they are still grand and create an amazing sense of space and home despite their size. Anyway, I'm sure as I finish more and I move in I'll have a lot more to say about this big vs. grand thing in tiny houses. For now just enjoy some pictures from this weekend.
