Last piece of skirting metal

Trailer skirting

The last piece of skirting metal went up far faster than the first did. On a few pieces --- like this one --- we chose to cut the metal in a straight line along the bottom rather than dealing with irregularites of the ground since cutting across the metal ridges is very tricky. We'll backfill dirt up against any gaps later to finish creating my planting beds, which will make current irregularities disappear.

Underpinning door

Next up is doors. We left gaps for four of them and Mark's got the first one all framed up. The top in this image will be a vent which is still bubbling to life within his imagination, so stay tuned to see how it turns out!
