Vintage Trailer Progress


It has been so hot the last few days,
you can get nothing done outside.
It's literally 97 degrees.





SO
Dan took a nap yesterday
because it was too hot to work.


Here is what he has done so far.
He has completed framing this back corner-





as well as this back corner.




The roof is reframed and patched as well.





Here is the back wall, reframed.
It's so humid, my lens got foggy really fast.
We also put the paneling back over this back framing, too.





Next step:
 caulking the corners and priming the exterior,
which we can't do until it cools down to 90 degrees anyway.
WHAT A COOL DOWN!
But, we have the products in hand, and just may get our &*^%s
out there tomorrow morning at 5am while it's still 85 to do it.

I think it will look a lot better sitting on the driveway primed
than with that dated brown streak on the side...blech.

AND the floor
will be sometime next week!

He has done a lot of work on her already. She will be up and running in no time. The weather is so awful to do anything in! It was 98 at our house today and I don't know what it was with the heat index figured in- AWFUL it is!
Hope you can get her finished soon. We are supposed to cool down on Saturday. xo Diana

I am so in love with this idea! You've (well HE's) done a lot of work already -- looking forward to the finished product.

Andrea,
It has been in the high 90's here too, and wishing it would cool down a bit. It must be too hot for your husband to work. What a great picture of him!

Stay cool and enjoy the weekend.

Love,
~Sheri
