Electrical almost done + finally starting roofing and siding!

More good progress on the Tiny Project house this past week. Thanks to a very long day of work from a great local electrician (and now friend), Brian, we’ve got almost all of the electrical work done.

You may remember from near the beginning of the process that I put many of the wires in the floor, so getting everything hooked up now was lot easier since we didn’t need to run many new wires through the walls. The most complicated part was probably wiring the 3 tripple-gang switch boxes, including 4 3-way switches. But thankfully I left all that to Brian! There are a few odds and ends to wrap up, and then some testing to do, but it’s very nearly done and will be ready to hookup fixtures and appliances when the time comes.

In other (very exciting!) news, I finally got my delivery of roofing and siding materials. The roofing package includes a whole kit with all the trim pieces and fasteners needed. The cedar siding has been pre-finished, as I lack the space and time to finish each board myself. I’ve got a few facia boards up already and will wrap those up soon so the roof can go on!
