Our Teardrop Build pt. deux

I stained the inside roof, and painted the walls a light blue.
 Ed and the Dad's putting the aluminum over the second layer of plywood.

Starting to put in the cabinets...we had no idea what we were doing.
 But we seemed to manage!

The hatch supports are semi-temporary, we're planning on making them more secure and wind-proof when we get around to skinning the inside of the hatch.
And here is the paint job so far! It's based on the retro shasta trailers, I'll be adding a silver line between the white and blue.

Our Teardrop Build

Ok, so here goes a "quick" recap of our teardrop build. 
My Dad acquired this old utility trailer last year. It used to be a pop up camper.

He ripped it apart...

And somehow managed to turn it into a perfect little 4x8 trailer!

Mom and Dad towed it up on Easter, so naturally we took a picture in our Sunday best.

Dad enjoys some beer and pizza after raising the walls.
