I'm back

I've been off the forum for some time. I haven't got to spend much time in the shop this summer. My daughter transferred to another position in First Energy. She has moved back home just across the road into a trailer that that my grandparents lived in until they passed away. The trailer went to my Dad sense he owned the lot. He rented it out for several years. The last renter lived there for 10 years and totally trashed it. It is a 12x60 trailer with a addition the same size built on. The trash was knee deep in the whole place. It took us 3 days to get the trash out. Then we had to replace the complete floor down to the frame in the trailer. and a couple of places in the addition. Then we took out all the drywall out. Then she is having it rewired. They are almost done wiring. Then we are ready to start putting it back together. It's been quite a job with a lot to go. It will be nice when it's finished.

Doesn't it always seem like it will be pretty simple but then turns into a major PITA LOL

If you knew how much work it would be before you started, would you have it or had a new one built?

Yes you would jump right in there for the remodel job. Probably cheaper than new construction.

She thought about a modular but until she sells her house in Grafton she can't afford 2 payments. She really wanted to have the trailer and addition because it was my grandmother's place. She will still have a good bit in it but not like a new one. We are putting it back just like a house. By us doing the most of the work it's saving her a lot of money. It's a lot of work but it will be nice when we get it done.
