june 2013 – the trailer and floor


this is the first look i got at the trailer. 8’x18′. bought it off kijiji (canada’s craigslist) and it was delivered three days later.

we had to remove some stuff from the trailer to get it ready. this is the floor frame made out of 2x4s and 4x4s. the 4x4s are where the frame is bolted to the trailer.


taking this picture really hurt. don’t do it.


i put down metal flashing, apparently to keep critters from chewing up through the floor. i read that somewhere and it instilled a fear in me – so i did it.


we built the sides of the trailer out using 2x6s that were bolted through the trailer. this added a bit of width in the areas without the wheel wells. then insulated with 3″ of rigid over top of the flashing and the vapour barrier.

put down another layer of vapour barrier then 3/4″ plywood.


floor. woot.
