    Putter Palace - Fire in the hole!

    To bring everyone up to date. The Putter Palace is a 24' cargo trailer that is undergoing a metamorphosis into a shop trailer. It will be towed behind my motorhome when I move from one community to another as an interim minister. A move is coming up, likely before the end of this year.

    The entire inside has been painted white to better reflect light, and while Larry was here for Burning Wood, he helped install two air vents in the roof. What a relief that was in the last few rather hot weeks! Thanks, Larry.

    Then to have room to work in there, I fitted out the ramp to be a covered porch. See http://familywoodworking.org/forums/...r-Palace-Porch

    And now...
    We have power! Saw sings. Lathe spins, air compressor pumps, outlets work. Life is good.

    that's some big rig youre driving along with the trailer.

    do you tow along a car or some other form of local transportation besides a bicycle? Maybe a motor scooter?

    Love it! I spend ~300 nights a year out in the RV. I call myself a 'most of the timer' not quite a full timer, but the heart is there. I prefer my fifth wheel over my house, leaps and bounds. I'm loving what you have going on here. How does that work in the RV parks? I'd assume it would be a fairly noisy setup-no complaints on that? Do you get a second spot to be able to power that beast? I'm guessing that thing needs it's own 50 amp service?

    Thus far, Justin, not an issue with noise. One, the power just got set up, so no real noise yet. Also, at this time of the year, the park is a ghost town. No real close neighbors. The only screamer tools are the routers, so have to plan when to use them. I can switch the MH to the big on board generator and plug in the Putter Palace to the pedestal instead for the duration, so no second spot required. Yes, I need the 50 amp service for the 220v for the table saw and the lathe. I can adapt to 30 amp service but lose the use of those two tools. This is a learning project.
