Nick+Nora's Tiny House

This blog is about our progress, successes and struggles during our Tiny House build. I want to write about what the experience has really been like, what a Tiny House is, and why we chose to do it.

Metal Work

This is what we were left with after demolition.  After we used a needle gun (which I wouldn’t recommend) to get the rust of as much as we could, we primed it with a good Rustolium paint (happens to be rust colored) and started chopping off all the metal that wasn’t in good enough shape to keep. We bought a bunch of new angle iron, c-channel, and square tubing and learned to weld. Luckily my step-dad has a welder that we used so we were able to keep costs down a little bit. Working with metal is tough, a lot of work, and can be frustrating at times but is so important in keeping your Tiny House safe and stable.
