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!
