We were so honored and Privileged to be asked by this awesome local organization (Mercy Drops Dream Center) to build them a custom shower trailer, complete with four HOT showers, on top of a 14 foot trailer.
They work with thousands throughout Hampton Roads, VA- distributing clothing, food, toys, school supplies and more at their fully equipped warehouse. During COVID- they were one of the top Charities in the area to provide much-needed assistance of essentials for adults and children alike.
Our goal was to be able to take the shower trailer to the streets or use it for mission teams that come to work, sorting items from their warehouse during the summer months.
After a few months of planning, budgeting and getting estimates, we were finally ready to build!
We started with a simple frame- enough to fit four custom doors- all of which we got reclaimed from the Restore in VA, Beach and Norfolk.
We are going to use as many reclaimed materials as possible for this job, however for framing, insultation, electrical and plumbing, buying new materials will ensure the best safety.
A small access door will be just enough room to fit an adult to fix any plumbing or electrical needs- neatly hidden out-of-sight.
We only had 30 days to complete this trailer- a very tight deadline- since we were working on it in-between other remodeling jobs with our other company: Handy Andy Fixes and homeschooling our three children fulltime.
But we were focused- knowing that we were giving back to the area and serving in our own way- creating something amazing out of a small idea!
