We’re mostly done with demo! Woot! Who wants to see this trailer start to come back together? My hand is up!

This project took a bit of re-engineering. The original trailer was sandwiched together: inside framing, paneling, outside framing. That didn’t make a ton of sense, so we opted to construct a much stronger exterior frame and build onto that.

The only hiccup was defining the shape. The water damage was severe so it didn’t leave a great template to follow. Aaron used the metal skin for the outside curve and the little framing that was left helped outline the inside curve.  He also framed out the windows and added extra cross bracing. Then he bolted the wood frame onto the trailer frame. Basically, this thing is no longer a trailer, it’s a tank. Boom.
