Well, here it is! The foundation for my tiny house! It is a 1983 Great Divide 28 foot trailer. I have never bought anything like this before. But, there it is. A proto-house. All hulking and hideous and begging for transformation.
It comes with lots of salvageable stuff. Although I do hope the former owner got that bicycle out of it before he delivered it.
Fake wood panelling galore. It is going to take a fantastic amount of work to strip this down and rebuild it. I don't think I'll be finished any time soon. But it is wonderful to know I am working toward a future, and that I'm doing it without waiting for things beyond my control. The next step will be to begin stripping it and to really start figuring out the design. I didn't want to start finalizing anything until I knew what I would be working with. This weekend, I will pick up some work gloves that fit me.
