Did you know Abel Zyl of Zyl Vardos hosts an “Ask Zyl Live” series on YouTube every Sunday at 10:30 a.m. PST?

It’s true! If you’ve seen his homes, you’ll know Zyl is a master craftsman, so getting to pick his brain every week is a real treat. Last week he spent an hour answering questions like how to make your exterior siding last and how many tiny homes he’s built. He also discussed how to seal the bottom of your tiny house, why nails can be better than screws, and why he doesn’t use much steel in his builds. Bonus: See his farm! You get all that (and way more!) for completely free.

If you have a question for him for next week, head over here to post your questions in the comments. Be sure to subscribe to his channel so you don’t miss anything.
