Our Trailer

I know a few of you are waiting for our first “action” pictures and I’m very eager to make this happen today!

Shawn and I spent a couple of days grinding and cleaning our trailer.  We also added rust inhibitor and made sure that everything looked neat and tidy.  In the end, the welded plate that now covers our former porch did not stand out as the “ugly addition” anymore, but finally looked just like all the other cells.  Then on Tuesday, 7/1/14, the first magic happened: Our precious trailer was filled with insulation!  Instead of my dearly-loved sheep’s wool we used expanding foam, BUT I have to say that now I’m happy with this decision.  While preparing our trailer for the insulation I actually noticed all the tiny, little holes between the flashing and the metal framing.  The foam now acts as a sealer and covers everything nicely.  At this point, I want to give our first thanks to Plum Builders, Inc. – a couple of guys who did not only know someone to spray our insulation into the trailer but who will also help us with framing our house!  I also want to thank Don Parrot from Connecticut Arborists, Inc. (Shawn’s employer) for all his valuable help and advise!  Thank you, thank you, thank you!

And now please lean backwards and enjoy our picture show!  You don’t even have to get your hands dirty for this…
