Yesterday, before we left for the movies, I brought my cat, Susie into the vet for her check-up and to get her nails clipped. I always enjoy going to the vet for a check-up – it\’s like when I had babies – I used to love those well-baby checkups. Susie actually enjoys getting out for an adventure – I get out her crate and she gets right in and settles in for the ride over. When in the office she likes to walk all over the paperwork, the counter – she thinks she is a goddess.
You know you\’re OLD when the vet talks nicely about your cat/or dog and you feel all pumped up and proud. Just like I used to feel when I had my babies.
The demolition of all the old wood and the skin is pretty much done. He\’s breaking it down to bare bones and will have to rebuild the whole roof.
The foam that is used for insulation is gone – that brown stuff is the aged glue. Yesterday he went out shopping for wood to build the frame. Dang, wood is expensive!
He assures me he knows what he is doing.
This portion of our side yard gets full afternoon sun and when it\’s over 100 out, I won\’t let him work out in it. Yesterday and so far today, the sun is blotted out due to the smoke, and it does seem a little cooler. He says he will start cutting wood maybe this afternoon or tomorrow.
I\’m envisioning stained wood panels for the roof. I don\’t want that white fiberglass skin on it. I\’m going for a rustic cabin look. I thought of going beachy, but everyone does that now and I love the outdoors and mountains, so why not turn my tent trailer into a cabin on wheels.
Here are some trailers that used wood instead of the \”skin\”.
