You have seen many tiny houses with heavy, wood, rustic looking exterior planking. It looks wonderful, but, oh my, the upkeep. First of all, if you want to move around a lot, that’s a great deal of extra weight to carry that serves no life-style function. Then, be prepared to water seal it every few months, or it will dry, crack and splinter, attracting mold, wasps, termites and all manner of wood loving maladies.
slip-stop strip is an important safety feature, along with the rope railings. The non-skid tread strip stapled on the tall ramp strips makes a real difference, and need to be replaced. But, until then, all that’s left to do is to slap any good water seal on your wood steps or ramp, and... Spits-Spa, you’re good to go !
