Music to my ears “I like the round window, it looks nautical.” You know you got it right when someone tells you exactly what you’re going for without saying anything. I’m going for a modern beach house look and one of the must have’s is a round window.
Here are some pictures from the process. Some important tips- number the boards so you can match the sides up later. And always use the actual window for all measurements! That way if you make a mistake, it doesn’t affect the rest of your cuts.
Now that you have the window trim ready. You have to create a window box so it has stability.
Now that the window’s in I caulked all the trim boards to prevent any water from getting in. Caulk everwhere! The pop out roof got finished which allowed me to add the remaining shingles. One of the most glorous things happened as soon as the last shingle was added, the wind picked up and blew a cloud of fall leaves down on me. It was like the universe was blessing the tiny house.
Add chaulk lines to make straight/even rows and mark the stud lines every 2 feet so you know where to add the staples. It’s important to vary the seam so it looks random.
Oh! And always bring helpers!
One things for sure, no water’s getting in this tiny house!
