First order was to move the park model into the street and out of the way. Our neighbor Ron was there to help all the way. After hitch-up with the Freightliner, with the correct size ball this time, Marc eased out and over the curb cut and into the street. The park model joined the flatbed and the shed trailers on our quiet street.
Marc then hitched up to the shed trailer backing it into the far back corner of the lot literally right next to the block wall. Since it is a trailer and not a permanent structure, there will be no set back requirements the county can enforce even though it will remain for the future as a storage shed. This way we can get maximum use out of all our lot’s square footage.
Like the ace driver he is, Marc rehitched the Freightliner to the park model and even without mirrors wide enough to see around its girth, he backed that baby in like a pro in one shot. Whew, it was close though. With no room to maneuver he had to leave it canted and then he and Ron got busy hand-winching it over about four feet which took over an hour of jacking and winching. They carefully measured to get the front aligned with the back end, allowing for about ten feet so we can fit the boat alongside. Great job guys! There is still much to be done, but figuring out the structure of the lot is done. Next up: we get an “oh no, what will the neighbors say” red sea container!
