Rear Wall Brackets


Tristan designed these purdy brackets to be reminiscent of the corbels you see here in New Mexico. We burned through our used $10 jigsaw in the process, but the Tool Library saved the day yet again and we were able to finish and install them. These brackets will support the upper portion of the wall, which juts out one foot from the end of the trailer. This design allows us to mount the bed platform one foot further back, which give us a few extra square feet of floor space (when you're building this small, every square foot counts!)

The goal for tomorrow is to get the rest of the rear wall up, and if we're lucky we may even get to cut both walls into circles!
