Sometimes it takes half a six-pack, sometimes it doesn’t.
That’s been my motto while transforming the beater car-hauler trailer into the “foundation” for our portable backcountry skiing hut similar to the tiny houses being built all over the world these days. Operating a cutting torch in the hot sun, then crawling around on the ground with my welder? Those activities chew through the sixers like that torch punches mild steel. Strapping on the tool belt and cutting up nice fresh 2x4s? That’s when I’m a friend of Bill. Check out the first stage of the project. Lucky for my liver, the steel phase is over with.
Next, we’ll get some walls up!
