We have 10 24X24 windows to install and as of today we accomplished 7 of those. Ryan cut the Tyvek paper 3 inches from the top, straight across. Then he cut out the bottom and sides to resemble an upside down Martini glass shape. He folded and stapled them to the inside of the window frame while leaving the top folded up for the time being.
While putting in the wooden shims along the bottom and sides of the interior part, I made sure the window stayed level. Crooked windows would not be a good look for our tiny house! We screwed it in with a battery powered drill and then came back around with a hand screwdriver to tighten the rest of the screws.
After the window is screwed in we used metal flashing strips along all four sides in order to inceease water resistance. With the Tyvek that we left folded up on the top, we layed it down and started there first with our metal strip and then continued clockwise layering them.
Before we come back and spray foam insulate, we want to finish screwing in the last 3 windows and lay down the strips since the weather has been amazing. There was no fighting with the wind standing 12 feet up on the ladder today so I think we were very successful!
We are Ryan and Hannah Fullerton. We built a tiny home between fall and spring of 2014-2015. We sold it in may of 2015 and moved into a travel trailer full-time. We love to explore and go on adventures with friends. Our favorite sports are Stand up paddleboarding, and rock climbing. We train hard in the gym so that our bodies are strong and ready for our outdoor activites. Follow us on our journey to live small, but have big adventures!
