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.

More Aluminum ... and Troubles to Ponder ...

There's more in the trailer ... still a bit more to clean-up.

Once upon a time ... 
a previous owner was towing the trailer behind his car
and forgot all about it being there ...
and drove around some tall hard object just like he was only driving a car by itself.  There was a mark on the siding up near the top, below the air conditioner, where a pole has scraped.  

And on the driver-side just in front of the front axle, the trailer was damaged.  This let water in to damage the wall behind the sink & stove and rot the bottom pan under the floor.

 It may have done other damage as well ...
are the wheels lined up?

Or does the one on the front axle tilt left at the top?

Notice that the front axle looks a bit more arched than the rear one?
That's the one that was involved in the wreck.
Just one more thing to ponder while I clean up around the trailer.

Starting to rake up all the flotsam and jetsam left from the deconstruction.

Scrap Metal

Cleaning up around the yard.
The top square is the aluminum roof from the trailer.
The bottom squares are the tin from under the floor.
There were several rust holes in the tin.

This is the siding - still needs cleanup.
