Not For the Squeamish: Part 2

I fear that until there is nothing left but a frame this may be a continuing series. As bad as these pictures look they just can't properly portray the conditions we are finding. I think the rule of thumb is 1) if the trailer looks good it has water damage, 2) if the trailer has water damage don't be optimistic on how much you are going to save. In light of recent events we are rebuilding from the frame up.
Everything worth doing is worth overdoing.
 The curb side tin has been pulled. Here is a good corner.
 The roof slopes from the back to the front. I shouldn't be surprised that more than a few of the 1x2s weren't actually connected.
As Jerad mentions, the pile of structure is getting larger underneath the walls. We need to get the sides templated before there is more pile than structure.
