A new build begins: getting the trailer and starting the floor package.

Yesterday we picked up our custom trailer to start our next build. All of our trailers are built in Canada, modified on Vancouver Island, and designed specifically for Rewild Homes. There were a few modifications still to be finished when we arrived yesterday to pick up the trailer, so our lead builder Brad got his hands dirty and helped finish the job.

Once we got the trailer back to our job site, the first step was to remove the decking. This allows us a few extra inches of vertical space when building.

The additional flanges along the sides of the trailer allow us to build to the maximum allowable width.

For extra protection on the underside, we use pressure treated plywood and then paint it with marine grade water sealant paint. Especially when building for a climate like Vancouver Island, we make sure to go above and beyond so that there will be no water leakage.
