Well I had planned to spend the better part of the day finishing this build but forces greater than myself decided that it was going to be. Kimme is back in the hospital and I have had all of about 2 hours sleep since I got up YESTERDAY morning. I will go into those details in the prayer thread.
I did go home for a little while this afternoon for some "ME TIME" and got the trailer out of the storage building. That was HUGE feat in itself! This is the first time that it has seen daylight since I put it in there about a month or so ago.
I got it out and finished putting the "rim joist" around the outside of the deck. I just layed the decking on it just to see what it was going to look like. I went to Lowe's and bought the lumber and "THOUGHT" that I had 2" deck screws at home but found out later that they were 1 1/4" instead. so that put a screeching halt to installing the actual deck boards.
I couldnt resist unloading the 430 and pulling it around the yard a few times to take some pics. (just to show you how hectic my life has been, my 430 has been sitting on the trailer since the day I came home from the Alabama Plow day.....and that was back on Nov 12th I 'think)
I decided to pile the decking in a pile in the middle of the trailer just to take a few pics.
The trailer chassis had a hitch plate on the rear that allows me to hook other trailers to it like a train so I couldnt resist dragging out the 20 cart and hooking it up.
Here is the hitch setup.kind of hard to see though.
One last picture after I parked it for the night. Hopefully I will get away long enough to get the decking finished tomorrow and then I can start working on the sides for it. Depending on how this week goes, I might just have to TIE the kids to the trailer to keep them from falling off
