the wall in the front was harder then i thought. the parallam posts are heavy and doing it by your self, you have to get creative when holding things up.

when i was standing to get my books i saw this view and just stood there. realizing how beautiful this looked and how beautiful it is to be building my tiny house, realizing behind those apartments, behind my loft is something that is and will always be..... that beautiful sky. making me think what is it that is most important. thinking what i really need in my life, those buildings were not there 100 years ago, this loft wasn't here a year ago but this beautiful sky was here before all that is infront of me. so simple, yet so beautiful. thats when i felt what i was doing was so right......

framing is starting to disappear. i didn't cut the second piece to size b/c its only me and i figured i will nail it on there and just saw the extra off. seemed much easier then trying ti measure it to size.
