Porch roof, storage box, wheel well boxes, window insulation, etc.

I got a bunch of assorted items built this week. Mostly pictures to share. Not a whole lot to say.

Completed items include the storage box on the trailer tongue side of the house, seen below.

I also got boxes built inside the house to cover and insulate around the trailer wheel wells and insulated the gap around all windows and their rough openings with “Great Stuff” spray foam:

And most difficult to do all by myself, the overhanging roof above the door and porch. This took some careful measuring and calculations, and then some creative use a ladders, contortionism, sheer man-strength and luck to lift it up there above the posts, slide/drop it in just the right place, hold it there while leveling it, and then securing it in place.

Somehow managed to life the framing up there myself.
