The Creation Begins with Destruction

The trailer has been re-located down next to the cabin. I've got the pressure-treated lumber to build the base. And if my motivation keeps up, I should have it framed in by the end of the summer. Hopefully.

Unwanted Singe-Wide

Sometimes, this is what happens to a perfectly good single-wide trailer ... even out in rural areas ... when the local government won't let you keep it on your own land.

He couldn't give it away ... the county landfill wouldn't accept it as one piece ... SO, using a backhoe, this fellow proceeded to smash it to pieces.  He sold the steel frame pieces and larger chunks of aluminum siding for scrap.  The rest of it he loaded on a flatbed trailer ...
and the landfill would now accept it.

  1. There's actually steel in these things? I'm not sure I believe you. I'm still supporting my cardboard and tinfoil theory. Though ours has two real walls made from wood and drywall!! At least I'm assuming Nathan built a wood fram ebefore putting up the drywall. . .
