Foundation – Framing, insulating, decking the floor and more work on the trailer

Hello!  happy Saturday.

We’ve been busy refining our design, searching for doors, windows and siding materials, as well as other misc items like a water heater, fridge, and toilet!  (stay tuned for an upcoming post on our toilet!  you won’t be disappointed – it’s not your average flusher…)

Yesterday Shane was busy cleaning up the trailer.  And by “cleaning up” I mean grinding steel chunks off the frame after removing a tool basket that was welded to the front gooseneck.  this space will become a perfect little storage shelf under the bed.

BIG rooster tail!

I've definitely got the better job as the photographer. Except... are you trying to hit me with those sparks?!

better back up and take pictures from a safer distance…

Shane also got the floor framed, insulated, and decked this past week.  only a few minor problems with the trailer being out of square, but he was able to even things out using a handy Giant Steel Trailer Bender.  Naw, just kidding, he just adjusted the framing to be square.  the trailer “is what it is” as all realists say.

have a great day!  thanks for following us as we build our tiny (portable) home.
