Back in July Richard saw the following item up for auction on one of the many sites he follows. He pointed it out to me, and at first I was skeptical, but with further thought about it, decided it was not such a bad idea. We took the 3.5 hour trip to go see it, West of the Twin Cities. It was an electrician contractor's job shack. It has seen some wear and tear, but is basically sound, and a good shell to build up a "mobile" mews . . . that is, one that could be moved from the farm to our eventual home, once we purchase one. I decided it was a worthy project, so Richard was on hand at the end of the online auction, and placed the winning bid for me. With taxes and fees, it was $470. Not really a bad price for a little trailer.
Both dogs inspected it when it arrived.
This is the BEFORE picture, taken on site before we won the auction. There were shelves installed holding the electrician's equipment. After the auction all of this stuff was gone, but there were still shelves. This is the only room in the trailer, with a sealing door, so we started there. Also to clarify, I say "we" but really, I didn't do anything, other than dump money into my own personal money pit. Rich and Brian did all the work.
