9.1.15 – After many trips between the DMV and the CHP, our home built trailer is finally registered! This process set back our timeline by about 3 weeks, this is because the DMV had some recent policy changes. We are glad that is done!

Temporary wheel wells for now. It's all ready to take a trip to the dmv this week! 8.16.15

After about one month of finishing up plans and getting organized we have placed our first big order for the little house! We are very excited!
