I haven’t worked on the mini house for too long. I had a lot of things going on and didn’t feel up to it when I did have some time. So tonight was the first work in a while.

I’m pretty happy though, because I got the last window opening cut, the roof screwed on and the first piece of electrical tape fastened to the outside of the house, where the transformer will connect.

Here are the pictures:

The above photo shows the bedroom window openings, before the roof was put on.

Above is the front of the house with the roof in place. Most of the items lying in the house are parts of the electrical kit, except for the flooring package. Don’t forget, there will be a roof deck eventually.

And here’s the electrical kit, above!

Above is the first piece of electrical tape, from Cir-kit.

And I’m so excited because my wood veneer arrived! It is very thin veneer, and I am going to use it to make hardwood floor planks for my mini house. I got the idea from emilymorganti.com/blog, so many thanks to her. I had realized the cost of hardwood flooring was going to be very high and I could not get the type of flooring I wanted. This is much cheaper. You’ll be finding out how it goes as this project moves along!

I think the electrical is going to take me some time to finish, so the next post may not be for a while. I also have to spend a lot of time studying for my Texas adjuster’s license (sigh).
