Holly has had a bit of time, and I got pictures of the work that’s been done since Dragonflys was moved from Yardley, PA, to Hamilton, NJ, and is being worked on when a very busy Holly and co. have a little time.
Here is a view of the front area which will be the bedroom – windows on three sides, and, to the left (where the blue tarp is) is the front entrance.
Same space with me standing on the porch to take the picture.
This is the other end – and the bamboo finishing for the walls – which will be sanded and stained, and have a finish coat? – is going up all around the inside – and all the windows are in!
Holly is showing the scale of her little home.
Support structure for the loft is in – the kitchen will be to the right, and, interestingly enough, putting the loft in makes the interior seem bigger – possibly because the ceilings before were almost 13 ft., and that dwarfed Holly – now it feels like a human-sized space.
Windows are white on the inside, and will be dark on the outside. They are almost ready to put the shingles on. I don’t have pictures, but the Tyvek is now covered with a yellow layer like a very open sponge/mesh that will provide a place for moisture to condense and run down between the Tyvek and the shingles.
This picture gives you a feeling for the size of the house.
The far window is the kitchen one from the outside.
I don’t have pictures from today, but the loft floor is up, and looks very nice. She will leave the space between the 4 x 4s uncovered – and there is still a lot of space over her head.
Every time I see it, Dragonflys has moved a bit along its flight path.
And it looks and feels more like a home-to-be, and less like a garden shed (a TALL garden shed on wheels).
Can’t wait to see what goes up next. Go, Holly!
Interesting. Post pics when it’s finished!
