My Trailer Puzzle

My EcoFoil Double Bubble is on the way; I got it for free thanks to my mother who says, ''They can't say yes if we don't ask!" I am so excited to actually start attaching things on my trailer! I purchased six 2x4x16 untreated wood planks from Home Depot (I didn't know this, but UNtreated wood is better because sometimes the chemicals in treated wood can be released and put harmful things in the small spaces of your house). Below you can see me explaining how my first layer of materials is going to be placed. Making a house is like a complicated puzzle!

By the way, TWO WEEKS UNTIL CHRISTMAS!! I am so excited. I get to see family! I will be taking lots of picture on my way there! Happy Holidays! And for those like my family (who celebrate multiple holidays)...Happy Hanukkah!


  1. Great explanation. When you get rain on your tarp like that try and dump the puddles. Believe it or not tarps can allow condensation to build up and can possibly either saturate your wood or even begin to warp it. If you have room stack your lumber flat somewhere that is dry and out of the weather.

    All in all though? You rock Sicily!

  2. Thank you so much Drew! I had no idea. This is my framing wood, so I need to protect it!
