Well Sunday was the best day this weekend so I put in 8 hours and got the other bump out framed in and the big 27 lite fixed window installed. Woke up Monday morning ( my last day off) to about an inch and a half of new snow. The Hell with it I will get the framing skinned today one way or the other. When this is done the entire tiny will be weathered in. It will still need the steel roof installed and the exterior finish sided but I can heat the inside to at least work on the electrical during our May and June blizzards :rofl2:

Friday My helper and I installed the v grove recycled siding on the front of the Depot. It is complete nose to tail and just 1/2 way up the wall. Saturday and Sunday were cold blustery days so we retreated inside out of the wind. We removed the 2nd 4th and 6th bottom member of the roof trusses. There are now 3 open and airy sections ( I refuse to call them rooms). The roof line was sub framed to accommodate a modified vaulted roof line.
We were also able to get about 1/2 of the tiny wired for 120 ac With duplex outlets. It is nice to have power here and there now instead of a single extension cord to work from. We also got a very tiny start on installing the 4" polyiso' foil faced ridged insulation in the wall cavities. It was a very productive weekend. Oh I splurged and spent another $7.50 on construction screws. I need to update my costs to date.

April 22nd and 23rd

Entire roof is insulated with 4" foil faced polystyrene billets and 3/4 of the electric has been ran. Side wall stud cavities are filled with the 4" poly insulation as well.
Had 2 little electrified dietz lanterns that have been hung at the pooch out entry door flanking both sides. It is starting to get a railroad personality. We still have Monday
to make some more strides. (update ) Monday was windy cold and crappy so I stuffed a few cavities with the 4" and installed two
4 foot track lights for temporary lighting to work by. Gave up and called it a day.

The Depot received a present. As I was taking my helper back to Lafayette we went thru a tiny hamlet where the week before they were having a clear out sale of a big old school building. Frank remembered I wanted an arrival departure board for the depot and had me stop. They were there shuffling stuff out and when we asked about a chalk board they had a small 3 x 4 section of the heavy as hell old slate blackboard. It was marked $100.00 we got it for $10.00. I think they just want stuff gone.

Mothers day was 3 days in Kentucky to visit with mom ! so no progress on the depot.

I did have Monday and the grass was up to my a## so I got busy manicuring my lawn area up by the barn and caboose/depot spot.

Next weekend the 18th - 20th is the spring Hoosier gathering so yet another play weekend.

I am gonna get lazy if this persists.

Oh I did hit a yard sale and bought a nice lock set with deadbolt for $10.00 better get that purchase recorded.

Spring gathering was great ! Met some nice new folks who were ready to go tiny and give up their rolling McMansion. Did get home mid day Sunday and with my helpers assistance we finally got all the scrap fencing bailed up and ready for a scrapper to pick up. Monday was an all day garden tilling day starting with fixing the flat tire on the tiller. We then ran it in shifts for over 4 hours. The 30' x 100'+ garden is about 1/2 tilled and the bedding plants are in the ground finally.
