I kept not getting round to taking pictures while I was framing out the walls, partly because I was busy framing out the walls & partly because, well, framing is framing, it isn’t HARD, there are a zillion places online where you can read about how to do it …
But then I thought, y’all aren’t here to see just anyone do the things, you’re here to see ME do the things.

okay i’ve been doing a pretty terrible job of taking pictures but i took some video?? IT LOOKS LIKE A HOUSE
[ the video is takes while walking around the tinker’s wagon. three of the four walls are framed out. also it is very windy. ]
& I BUILT IT. ALL BY MYSELF.
(Turns out an eight foot length of 2×2 framing is pretty easy for me to pick up by myself, so one of the places I thought I’d need help I’ll be able to handle pretty easily on my own.)
The hardest part was ripping the 2x4s down to 2x2s, but even that was no worse than annoying & tedious. I still wish I could find decent 2x2s, but, well.
& yes, that big gap at the center top IS gonna be a window. I like sunlight. A LOT.
I’ll do a post with the actual steps in the process later this week, but right now I just wanna celebrate WALL.

Also, a boy. The nice thing about going to Home Despot with somebody else is that they can push the cat stroller while I push the big lumber cart. Or the other way round, depending.

The sky was doing this when I got outside. Not very promising but I figured I’d get as far as I could before the skies opened.
