Why I’m building a Tiny House – http://youtu.be/C8GsRSB-G-8
Here’s my tiny house build project, I started it a few years ago and it’s coming along nicely. This video is to introduce you to my new channel. I have a second channel, The Homestead Craftsman, https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCRWsQfRiwGqBaVP_29OrZVw but wanted to put together this channel that will be dedicated to my tiny house project. If you would like to subscribe and follow along, feel free, I’d love to have you. I’d like to have a lot of interaction with subscribers so feel free to let me know what you think with thumbs ups and comments with you opinions. I’ll also probably do a monthly video where I post my progress and answer questions and respond to comments. On The Homestead Craftsman channel I do a segment called “The Craftsmans Corner” where I do something similiar and also show subscribers projects from photos they send me. So feel free to send me photos on my email or facebook. thehomesteadcraftsman AT gmail.com or click here and send me a message. https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Homestead-Craftsman/151656998374912?ref=hl

Thanks for watching, I look forward to seeing the channel grow.
