Walking Front to Back 8.9 Acres on 479 Mang Rd Salisbury Center NY (Part 2 Video)

Today we walked the property on 479 Mang Road front to back.  As some may have noticed, we are selling multiple properties on homeskape.net (our landwatch.com account) and had a few calls on this property.  To answer the question many will ask, yes we are still building a tiny house on the property.  We develop all of our properties at homeskape and we buy and sell land across the USA.  We only buy properties we are OK will keeping if we do not sell them.  So in short, the land is for sale, but we continue to develop and build as if I would have to keep it....  enjoy the walk...



This video shows the tax map of the property so you can get a good idea of the size of the property.  We will be back shortly to keep building....

Walking the Front of the Property (Video)

This weekend, I went to the property to walk the land and check up on everything.  I was shopping for more land so I did not get the chance to make any improvements to the land.  Here is the video of me walking the front of the property:

Step 5c: Tarping Up the Cabin & The Clean Up Crew

Well we were far from done on Thursday July 9, 2015 but I needed to get back home.  Me and my buddy Mike put a tarp over the top.  We still had one more piece of plywood to finish the top but it was easier climbing the inside them our other option (we had no other option, we only had a ladder that could reach the roof from the inside).  Picture of the open spot in the roof from the inside:



Tarp it up!!!!!!!  I like to leave the work area clean....


Here is a picture of the back side of the cabin after we had put plywood on it the day before. 


Spent most of the day cleaning and nailing in what we could after tacking the plywood boards up the day before...



It pained me to leave the project midway but I needed to get back home to run my other businesses.  I planned to come back up in a week or so.  Stay tuned.....

Step 5b: Siding the Cabin with Reclaimed Plywood

As night-time came closer me and my friend Mike tried to put up as much reclaimed plywood on the sides of the house as possible. 


For time sake, I left the beems on the room overhang and decided to cut them off later.  Tools were scarce and I only had a week to get done as much as possible before I had to go back to my day-2-day job in Connecticut as a business plans writer. Even though I can pretty much work from anywhere, my fiancé was back home.







Because we did not have access to a saw we overlapped a lot of the plywood over the windows and decided to cut the extra wood out later..

We will be back shortly to keep building....

Step 5a: Starting the Siding -- Putting Up the Roof Beams and Installing Windows on the Tiny Cabin

I work, and 3 weeks past until I was able to come back up.  When I got back to the build site I had managed to hire 3 country boys from around town.  Really cool guys and together we got a ton done.  We put in the first window which only took two minutes and then began siding the house with reclaimed plywood.  Since I was only up for 4 days I decided not to cut to roof beams right away.....


Since I only had the guys helping for the one day, we nailed down the plywood on the roof as soon as possible, no one wanted to be up there.  We left an opening in the back so the next morning I could go on the roof and start laying the roofing.  


Its not a good idea to put the roof on before siding the tiny house with plywood.  It shifted the beams a fraction of an inch but enough to start causing some major headaches.  We put up the plywood on the sides of the tiny cabin as fast as possible and kept it moving...
