Cool Jason! A home on wheels to help you toward your next homestead! My grandparents had a small mobile home and we stayed in their trailer like yours when we came to visit. It worked out really well. Now you'll have a "spare" room should you ever have people visiting after you get your new homestead up and running. I hope you got a good deal.

Thank you for talking about safety and using a push stick! I can't tell you how many youtube homesteaders and DIYers I've seen being so dangerous and joking about "safety third" or more like safety never. This is an excellent video. I always learn so much from you. Oh boy, you got the trailer! Can't wait to see it, and see what you do with it.

Ahhh, timber sizes! Nominal, actual.... bit of a pain, but then again the 2 x 4 nominal will start off as different qualities needing different amounts of planing I suppose, makes sense. I'm across the pond, we say timber you say lumber!! Ever looked up the meaning of lumber in googlepants? Crikey! There's 1., 2. and... (eek) 3. Those Scots :) We use 2x2's (50x 50mm in my money) very normally for the kind of construction you typically use 2x4. Is it not as available off the shelf there?

Jason your Birds are a super Pretty Mix. Green egg! What No blue? You mention thinning down the wood stock on building. Oh man I could of used this knowledge to build an Ultra light Chickshaw. We did scrap wood and man its heavy. Not to mention the most critical point. The wheels! They make the bus go round and round. I bough what I though was big enough wheels. I was WRONG! 1 inch Hardware cloth has been near impossible to find up here in Jonesville Va. I travel to TN and NC looking. Everything But 1 inch. 1/2 inch just is a chicken poo poo collector. This is 100% a no no for any new builder. 1 inch on the bottom is the way to go. I have to rebuild it and fix this error and the wheels.

Your channel is so good! Before retirement I was also an AutoCad jockey. I therefore so much enjoy your employment of your experience and your sense of what is right for conservation of resources. For me (and maybe others in the world) however, it would be so much better in Metric 😉

I can give advise on the camper idea as we lived in one for 4 years while we built our log cabin!! I don't recommend it for that long!! 2- 2.5 years MAX!! And definitely would suggest one with a slide out if at all possible. Can answer ANY questions you might have...potty waste, water, insulation, ect

New projects are always exciting and it looks like you are up to the task at hand. I really appreciate you showing how to rip the 2X4s. Great explanation. It might seem easy for you since you have been working with wood for a while but, you are great at keeping in mind all skill levels. I'm guessing I am 20 years your senior and I have never ripped at 2X4 in my life but I feel confident I will be ripping a couple in my near future very soon. Thanks again.

I never had either until my husband bought me a table saw! It makes it so much easier to keep a steady line with the fence in place! I had to rip a few boards to replace the 5/4" outdoor window trim on our old farmhouse. It got rotted out from poor installation of a storm window. Table saw to the rescue. You can't find 5/4" boards anymore!
