I have only one word to describe your work on this project, MAGNIFICENT!!
Welcome to the wonderful (sometimes frustrating but not often) world of camping.

Anyone as handy as your self will feel right at home modifying your new mini-home until you have it JUST the way you want it (or just the way DW wants it).

Thanks for sharing all your efforts with us!

Very nice work. Can't wait to see the mods you come up with for the trailer.

So I am going to cap under the house and
re-seal the brick foundation.
looks good, great job and excellent report(pictures and all)

Thanks. I have to admit I'm happy with the set up so far. Im already thinking about extending it enough to park my utility trailer too, and I do need to add shore power. Id like to be able to pack and unpack with some AC running. It gets very hot and muggy here. And I wish I could have set it up with the door facing the yard instead of the alley, it seems backwards. But that would have meant putting the gate on the other side of the yard and backing in through the neighbors back yard to park it. I doubt they would appreciate that.

Great job. You apparently have some experience in construction. Hopefully you'll be able to construct a shelter to protect your TT from the elements in Waterloo, IA before winter sets in.
