Hi there, I’m the Mother of the family who has moved into the trailer. Nice to meet you all and thank you for all of your suggestions.
Right now we have the straw bales for skirting, we are adding an insulated addition on the front as the air lock, plastic film over windows will be added and I’m making thick curtains as well. We have a dehumidifier and carpet to lay down on the non carpeted floors as well.
As for our water source we have a buried water line and insulated box for the pump which will also have a heat lamp and any parts of the lines will be insulated and we plan on having at least one tap on drip. We catch the grey water for gardens or anywhere else it can be used so no waist there. Our black water flows to a septic tank that gets pumped out but I do have a question about that...our trailers tank stays closed and we flush it every few days at the moment, come winter to avoid the trailer tank freezing I’m thinking to empty it daily. Does this sound right? For the calories barrier around the outside of the trailer...will this add to condensation issues? Building a 3 sided enclosure isn’t in the budget this year as we are already building the addition on the front.
Thank you all and any other advise is much appreciated!
