Windows for Hilary and Geoff's new caravan
March Break Build in Uxbridge, Ontario
Farmers Market Wagon
Monday, March 10: first job - stripping the old trailer to the frame
Tuesday, March 11: preparing the floor and starting the framework
Wednesday, March 12: OH NO - IT'S SNOWING AGAIN!
Workspace, Ontario style...
Thursday, March 13: first, help from a neighbour raising a low corner
then we squared the frame and put on some walls
Friday, March 14: finished the walls; started the trim; put up the roof beams;
ready for roofing tomorrow
these are the support wings to keep the ledges square
(they're upside down in this picture)
Saturday, March 15: my final day of helping with this project.
both layers of the roof are on, all the openings are framed, and lots of the trim is pre-cut.
The cedar smells wonderful.
I can't wait to see the finished caravan at the Uxbridge Farmers Market!
