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.

The Storage Trailer

It gets even worse ...
My wife figured that we needed MORE storage space for stuff,
 so she bought this Shasta Trailer from our neighbor
 for $500.

He had purchased another trailer and the guy he bought it from said he had to haul this one off too.  Our neighbor figured to use it as a parts trailer.  

A mattress off the bunkbed and the inverter were what he needed to fix up the other trailer.  What you are looking at here are the wires left after the inverter was removed.  A replacement inverter would cost $320.

If you look closely, you may be able to identify why the other fellow insisted that he take it with him ... No, it wasn't because of the missing skirt around the wheels and slight damage in that area.  Notice this front corner?  3 out of 4 corners (the other two aren't as bad as this one) show signs of opening up due to wood rot of the frame.  Yep, this hole goes all the way through to the inside ... an extra tiny window that you can look out of while sitting on the couch.
As you may surmise ... this is the reason for the tarp.
And yes, my wife has it loaded with storage stuff.

It's easier to blame it on her ... 
than admit that I also have stuff in there that I could probably live without.
