Framing trailer skirting

Still, those two hours gave us time to frame up one (short) end of the trailer. We used treated 2X4s on top of the black plastic that underlays the entire trailer, then added uprights every four feet for attaching insulation and tin.

Next up --- cutting the metal to deal with the slant of the ground and figuring out attachment. Details to come in tomorrow's post!
