tiny "BARNS" on wheels

Lets talk tiny houses, tumbleweeds etc on wheels

Getting ready for next weekends gathering ol what's her name wanted the beds stripped so all could be washed and ready fresh. I removed the bed / sofa pieces and parts to vacuum. Yes I know how to run a vacuum.
I decided while they were out , to set them up so you could see what I have been trying to explain. In the picture you see a wire and tube futon frame supported on wood stands. The left one in the picture is just over 6 foot long and stays at the wall whether in the sofa or the bed position. The center and right pieces are just over 3 feet long to make them easy to manuver in the trailer. To make the sofa I simply flop the center supports on their sides and scoot them in. The left frame is flipped up and rest on the barn wall the righ supports move in and the right frame rest on the 2 sections shown on the right.

Wew! bob henry. I have a lot to learn! you have taken it well rough in the past on this tread than I get tossed at me on the main rest of the forum. and you don't blow a fuse like I do.

They are asking you about useing a nurse nipple for a baby. and you reply with coolness instead of one of my normal explosions. with no I was breast fed.

you humble me man! I would have stayed up all night with a well crafted dynamite grizzle bear reaction.

I see what you meant on the pms to me last summer to let it all rolle off. I should have done that on the brakes on a harbor freight trailer tread tonight. instead of getting even. Slowcowboy. still learning.
Plans. there was supposed to be plans to be followed when I built this thing. Opps! AH, gee, tum,tee tum. I think I forgot about the plans 2 years ago. ------Tow vehicles, 1995 ford explore, 1994 ford ranger, 1993 ford F-150, 2009 4x9 Off road teardrop, on harbor freight greatly modified frame.

Well it is shaping up here is the new FRP panels installed on sides and roof.

I would like to thank Dan G for the jeep luggage rack it cut down real easy and was a breeze to install.

Got 41 days left to refine the hatch and get it covered. Yes it will be at the CRA in July

Well another busy week end.....

Measure twice cut ( or drill) once. Yep you guessed it about 1/2 a hole too low hit the floor dead in the side.

Image

Well at least my ferris wheel self leveling shelf worked 1st time !

Image

Is my tongue box too wide .....??

Oh well it out of the yard now !

Image

here is a rear view of the door i cobbled together for my under floor storage locker

Image

Here is a right front and side view....

Image

Image

Recycled a couple pieces of left over lexan from Chubby and the tongue box is supported by 2x2 angle cut from the removed side rails from the barn build. Still just using what junk is laying around ( that's about all I can afford). The tongue box was removed from my ton truck before it went to the cash for clunkers program and is still a muddy mess from laying in the back lot. A little soap and water and a little rattle can paint and it will be fine. A hatch hinge cover a gas line for the stove and trim to width the FRP on the hatch and we are real close to being ready for the Cross roads of America gathering in July. It will be pulled in tandum with the barn this coming weekend rain or shine to see how it all pulls together. Yes, we will have some pictures !

Was ambitious last night so I trimmed the excess material at the hinge point of the hatch. I used some 5" wide ice dam tape over the 2 edge of the 2 sections as my 1st water barrier. I then applied 1/16 " black neopreme rubber cut to six inches wide. I bloused it loosely over the seam and installed 2 sections of 1" by 1/8" aluminum flat stock. This flat
stock had been drilled to simply screw thru and secure the rubber membrane.

I also removed the compartment doors and sealed the edges with the putty tape they were shipped with oh so long ago.

Trimmed the excess frp off of the hatch sides and called it beer thirty. It was Hot out !

Wife had some porch ledge wire forms that were designed to be slipped over the top rail of a deck or porch and you could hang bird feeders and other types of home decorations. They fell prey to my grinder and I used them for my over the side table lantern holders.

I took a large barrel bolt and ground out the little handle and slid the bolt portion out of the barrell and then cut off the two ends slid the now lantern hooks into the mounted barrel bolt half and wound up with this....

Image

Image

Image

Turned out as a happy accident if you swing the hooks forward they will also support the upper compartment lids.
