Trailer is ready
I finished the trailer yesterday. Today I will bolt the steel runners onto the house and pick away at all of the other details in preparation for the move. I am very happy with how the design is working out for the trailer, but am a little concerned about the height of it. Again, the house only has about a foot of clearance between the top beams and the top of the Firehouse door. Therefore, it needs to slide out onto the trailer. Luckily the driveway does slope slightly away from the building, so the further out the trailer is the better. I will probably have to bleed the air from the tires and tip the front end up in the air as well: anything to lower the trailer.
