Trailer and Sub-Floor Pics
My Trailer Guy happens to also be my neighbor so he delivered my trailer to me!
I hired a welder to replace some of the thread rods I had previously removed while we were adding outriggers to make the building platform wider......
....and he replaced the underside flashing as well in the rear corner which was originally designed to be a porch.
My trailer guy came back to move the trailer into the main part of the driveway so we could start building.
First step: Attach 2x4's to the "L" shaped steel cross members with eighty six, 3/8" x 2-1/2" long bolts.
Yes.....86 of them.
A close up shot of the inset bolts and thread rods.
We also attached 2x6's to the front and back plates with 1/2" x 3" bolts.
The 1/2" bolts had to go through both walls of the tube steel, NOT an easy task!
Here's the SUPER DUPER easy part!
Fluffing and "installing" the 100% Natural Wool Insulation from Oregon Shepherd.
Then, we covered it up with 3/4" tongue-in-groove OSB provided by our friends at LOWES.
It looks like a dance floor but it's the finished floor of my tiny house.
There is NO WAY this floor is lifting off this trailer. Ever. Ever.
