    Thank you for your generosity. I am building mine and am going to do the same thing. I have been videotaping my process as well. You beat me to it by a few months. Awesome and your gift is going to help so many people who are probably intimidated by this whole process.
    Love to you both

    Kiva/Jake: I was unable to post a comment on Youtube so will post it here. The only omission I noticed in your earlier post (#4 I think) is regarding the insulation/roof venting. Altho you will have minimal to no overhang at the bottom edge of your roof, it is wise to prevent warm air from melting snow behind the cold edge where ice can form. It will be difficult to remove the fascia and the screen to put some insulation in there now (and hold it away from the roof deck with baffles that you mentioned) so watch for any ice buildup and knock it off before the water has a chance to build up above/behind it and seep into your insulation and walls.
    I haven’t watched all your videos but I think your series is the most complete and informative of any I have seen on the www with the possible exception of Byrce’s at ‘Living Big in a Tiny House, NZ’… and he has had professional help. Tx and best wishes to you 🙂

      Indeed, this would be more of a concern if we were in a colder climate. There is very little snow that stays for more than a few days here on Vancouver Island… but we will definitely keep an eye if we get a snowy winter 🙂

      Thanks for watching!

    Wow, Jake and Kiva! What an incredible job! I literally couldn’t tear myself away and spent the WHOLE DAY watching your episodes. What a lovely, loving, intelligent and meticulous couple you are. I’m sure you will enjoy many happy years in your wonderful home. And I just had an education. Thank you!

    Thanks so much Kiva/Jake for sharing not only your home, but the whole process of completing your tiny house. I really appreciate your generosity in sharing it with us. May God richly bless your union and your lives in your tiny house always! Happy Trails! I’m hoping sharing your story with hubby will be the added incentive that was needed. If not, hey, I can start in the fifth wheel he wants to start in. 🙂 Thanks again and thank you Alex for sharing the article with us.

    Hi Kids,

    Getting ready to start mine. I like peeking around to see what I forget to think of and I will post my construction as well. I am thinking of steel framing instead of wood. Did you consider of steel? 10×32

    I would like to attend a workshop but you never have them in my area. I live in Dayton, Ohio so could you give thought to coming here.

    Thank you
