I have described the trailer as rhomboidal, but it isn’t. I was mistaken. At the very least it is a tetragon of some sort, but I do believe now that I can accurately describe the shape of the trailer as trapezial. A trapezium is a convex quadrilateral with no sides parallel. That makes for interesting construction work . . . at least for us Occupiers here.

So, we didn’t finish framing in the floor and the walls yesterday. The trapezial floor along with the current heat wave — 10 degrees above the new (higher) normal — slowed us down a bit. We did, however, get the holes in the underbody sealed, the floor framed in, and continued on with other work as well.

Today we have a friend coming by to help with the electrical. We will also frame up the rear wall and rear corners, as well as fix the trunk door — which fell apart yesterday.

The hole in the underbody here fixed by flattening the metal into proper shape and applying a screen, caulk and glue.
