Model of Tiny Home

We'll be selling our books at The Maker Faire in San Mateo, Calif., in May, and we decided to build a model tiny home for display. Our friend Tom agreed to make the model. It turned out that he got into it and spent over a month (not full time) on the project. He said he could have built the full size building in the same amount of time. It's put together with glue. Window shutters and doors open on hinges.

The full size building is 10' x 16', scale here is 1 inch = 1 foot, so this is 10" wide, 16" long.  Single wall construction (no studs).

Materials for model:
Siding: cedar; bats: oak
Shakes: cedar
Ridge beams: redwood
Shutters: cedar
Door: walnut
Door and window trim: oak

It's a little beauty.
