My 1st attempt at building a portable tiny home

5ft x 10 ft utility trailer bed and my beginning planks.

I thot I might learnt a little something from Doug…. enuf to run the tools to build a tiny home perhaps? Well this isnt something that Doug would do, build on a tiny budget, small on weight and no resistance to impact. Not a sound building in his opinion, and should not even waste time on it…

So it is entirely up to me, if it is to be. We’ll see if what little I know can amount to anything.

It was mentally strenuous to work out the construction details, but it was harder if I had to start drawing it on paper. I tried, but all I have is just the layout. Making up for the lack of construction drawing is my willingness to just go out, chop up some planks and screw them together and see what I got and then make my next move.

My cute tools. Note the purpil pencil. Fancy eh?

Naturally my construction plans are fluid and changing all the time… even the finished dimensions is not fixed until the last … 🙂 heeheehee… That is my way of thinking, why limit myself to a fixed plan when I can change it all the time?

Removing the trailer... camper didnt stay on the blocks...

And it was all working out just fine, I was able to construct the floor right on the trailer…. then I wanted to remove the trailer so that I can screw in the plywood underneath….

Insulating the floor.

I worked real hard at jacking it up, putting blocks under the floor and then pulling the trailer…. opps…. the trailer is out but the jacks toppled. Its really hard to work on uneven ground and just a little nudge from the rail was going to push it over.

Luckily not much damage… phew… but who needs the extra work to set it up on the blocks again.

Well, at least I recovered and completed the floor with insulation. Yep, I am not skipping steps here. Trying to do a real good job.
