The next step was to build the curved porch roof over the entry door to the mobile Tiny store….  We’re using a 3′-0 x 6′-8″ entry door so the store is accessible to all.

the porch roof will eventually be supported by columns and have railings on the sides as you can see in this previous post with design renderings.

We looked into renting a shop in Santa Fe because it is a lot more pleasant to build in a controlled environment out of the weather but couldn’t find any shop space.  So… we have a wonderfully short commute on workdays!

The next step will be to wrap the house in building wrap and cover the roof sheathing with high temp rolled roofing underlayment.  stay tuned!
