    Hi there,

    Love the updates on your progress, it’s looking great!

    Just wondering – why did you use two layers of ply for the flooring?

    Keep up the good work,

    Madeleine

      Hi there Madeleine-

      Thanks for the comment! There are a few different reasons I used two layers of plywood for the floor, the biggest one being that if I had just used one I would have had an awkward gap to fill in order to get the wall plates to sit flush on the home built trailer from Craigslist that I have used. It seemed like an easy option. There is no need for it structurally but I was also hoping that it would make the trailer a bit more rigid (since I am using drywall it could limit the cracking there if I could stabilize the frame a bit more). The third reason is because I had the lumber, I picked up all my wood from a local contractor for dirt cheap because they had leftovers from a big job. If I had to buy the lumber separate I probably would have figured something else out but I had exactly enough to do two full layers on the trailer bed.
      Thanks for your kind words, I hope that is helpful!

    Hey Macy! Your house is looking really good!

    As for your counters, here’s a page from the USDA on cutting boards. http://www.fsis.usda.gov/FACTSheets/Cutting_Boards_and_Food_Safety/index.asp As long as you dry your counters off , after using them, you’ll be fine!

    I agree with mixing half and half to get a lighter stain for the table. I am fascinated with how you are building your shower floor. Keep up the good work. And a belated Happy Thanksgiving!
