Beehive Mini Mart: Siding is installed, ready for batten strips.  You can see our gray stain color samples sitting on the ground.  We finally decided on a darker stain reminiscent of old weathered mountain cabins.

Beehive Mini Mart: Exterior siding is stained, window trim is installed. The big window on the side slides open so patrons can be served outside; food-cart style. The shed structure on the trailer hitch will house propane for the store’s heater as well as future PV solar system batteries.

Beehive Mini Mart: next we move on to the interior where we will install full height wall shelves, counters, and a fridge and freezer.

Starting the Beehive Mobile Mini Mart . We have the trailer!

We have the trailer for our client’s project: The Beehive Mobile Mini Mart!  Very exciting.  We’ll be starting the build next week and at last I’ll have something exciting to blog about again!  And You all will have another build to follow along on!  And our client will have a new mini mobile business!

We had this trailer custom built to have integral jack stands as well as a full width 8′-0″ wide platform.  Framing and anchor bolts will be a breeze with this wider foundation.

The trailer is 8′-0″ wide by 16′-0″ long and the store will be 14′-0″ long with a 2′-0″ deck on the rear.  You can read more about the design of the tiny store and Clothesline’s client in this previous blog post.

You can follow along with us when we start building next week.  Search “Beehive” here on our blog or click on the ‘Beehive Mini Mart’ category in the right hand column.

Getting this trailer reminds me of when we bought our trailer to build a tiny house for ourselves.  The trailer was used and required quite a bit of work to convert it from a car hauler to a foundation for a house.  I am a fan of re-purposing, but when it comes to the foundation for a structure…we’re excited to start the build on a new, clean slate.

Take care and stay posted…
