Caboose

  • November 30, 2016
  • Other


I have built many interesting projects for my customer Rob. However this was real fun project. He had bought an old hay trailer. He handed me a picture of a Caboose he saw on his travels around Colorado and said build this for me. So single handedly with the help of my various Ryobi tools I built Rob his Caboose. It is 8 ft wide x 16 ft long and 11 ft high. Pretty authentic except the regular house windows and the french door on its side in the upper viewing area. The interior is unfinished, but would make a nice small Tiny House.

  • What a cool project! You really made this vision come to life. Thanks for the detailed pictures of the building process too- always a treat. Do you know what your customer intends to use it for?
