The old trailer house was 14' wide and 66' long. This was the imprint it left behind on the property:
Looking west, you can see where the old trailer house is now parked:
Looking east, you can see where the camp trailer was parked in the backyard:
Ah, yes. The camp trailer. It became our temporary home for 3 1/2 weeks until the new house was ready to move into. The camp trailer measures 7' wide x 25' long. If I didn't feel cramped in our old house, then I definitely felt cramped in the camping trailer! Especially since 2/3 of the time we lived there, it rained. The rain was a curse for me. It made it so we were all stuck inside without a satellite TV, without room to play, and without internet for part of the time and also created lots of wet, dirty clothes that I had to take to friends' houses frequently in order to get the laundry done. I do not look back on those weeks with fondness. But, despite what people told me, I still like to go camping now that I'm not living in it anymore!!
Here's what the inside looks like (don't look too hard, I didn't clean before these photos). After you walk in the door, to the left is the kitchen area, the table and couch, and the queen-size bed where Josh & I slept:

After the excavator was finished, we were left with a big rectangular hole to admire:
Progress towards the new house felt rewarding, and almost made living in the camping trailer seem worthwhile (well, at least bearable)!!!...to be continued
