Trailer, check. Tools, check. Materials, check. Sunshine, check.
We were officially out of excuses. After months of talk, it was time for action!
Our first task was leveling the trailer, which we completed with gusto. Feeling pretty chuffed with ourselves, we began on the subfloor flashing: 0.5 mm stainless steel sheets separated from the galvanized trailer chassis by strips of plastic.
On top of that went the sub-floor framing, made from 45/90 mm timber and screwed together with the impact driver (new favorite tool!). We bolted the structure to the trailer using the handy threaded rods that the manufacturer welded to the top.
Polystyrene insulation slotted in the gaps, and 17 mm ply covered it all up, giving us a sturdy, and certified creak-free base of operations.
