update on micro house build

Ok micro housers here is a picture of insulating a wall in progress.

The wall is 2×4 so it is 3 1/2 inches deep and R 13 will fit like this.

After installing all the batts I am sheathing it with 1/2 inch osb on one side and then installing a 6 mil vapor barrier on the other before covering it with 3/4 inch plywood. Here is the other side.

After we finish that the site needs prepped for the floor and foundation to be installed out in the yard here are some pictures of the site. The front of the house will start right between the fence and the tree facing west . In the next photo the south side will get plenty of sun to warm it in winter and the low sun will come thru the winter for natural light. I already have instant landscaping and a rocked in fire pit. A few days ago there was over a foot of snow and the foundation was going to be fun to put down. The weather warmed up from 25 to 45 and the wind and rain have almost cleared the yard off again. More to come in the next few days stay tuned.

      1. Kevin,

        Thanks for the quick reply. I was just curious since I saw the walls framed and insulated. I thought I might have missed something.

        Thanks again for taking the time to show us how to do this.
