The Making of a Trailer

Large industrial trailers are great for moving large amounts of materials to and from a project site, but they can be expensive.  Jeff found a used steel trailer bed on craiglist and we transformed it into a beautiful trailer.  The overall dimensions were 8’ by 16’.  We covered the bed with wood decking and bolted it down by drilling into the steel frame.  Miles and I learned a bit of welding and practiced on the sides by attaching two pieces of metal, so that straps could be attached.  Now, multiple trips to the project site have turned into one.
