I am in the process of creating a small photo ebook to go along with the Sonoma Shanty plans and one of the resources I found to help in your construction education is located on the Fine Homebulding site called “How to Build a Shed.”
This is an excellent video series that walks you through the process of building a high quality shed and I think anyone building a tiny house would benefit from these videos.
Veteran contractor Rick Arnold is a contributing editor at Fine Homebuilding magazine. The shed you’ll see Rick build is not a prop in a studio. It’s an actual project, and the construction methods that Rick and his helper demonstrate reflect the best practices of professional builders. You’ll see firsthand what’s involved in locating and leveling the foundation, framing the structure, installing doors and windows, installing siding efficiently, and even landscaping effectively.
Of course remember to always consult local regulations before starting work. And good luck on your project! Go to the Fine Homebuilding website to view these videos.
