Our story

 

 

Our story is one that begins like many others , three blokes drinking Gin on new year's eve and ... well OK ... not like many stories but this is where ours began and before we knew it, it was February and we found ourselves looking at the challenge we were about to face ... we had bought an empty horse trailer!

 

Like most men acting upon impulse, we had not thought things through at this point and had not a first thought about where we were to now store our newly acquired horse trailer, let alone how we are going to work on it. I mean how difficult could it be to store a 9x4 foot trailer with no floor? Turns out a little more difficult than we thought. You see even if you take the wheels off of the trailer, it still doesn't quite slide up and under into an 8 foot tall cubicle at the local storage unit ... who knew? Well, Dave did actually. Dave was our savior, a hero among men, our rescuer who not only recommended we quickly learn how to use a tape measure and account for the axle but secured us a location for what is to become our home until this present day.

 

Dave kindly towed our trailer to our new home (did we mention that we didn't have a trailer license at this point?) where we met one of the most generous men on the planet, Dave ... well David ... turns out that Dave's and Davids are all really nice people! He has to this day not only allowed us to park, provide electricity and work on the trailer at his farm for very little in return but has introduced us to his wonderful neighbour,  Nick; who has also been amazing in helping us get things together and on our feet.

Now we had everything we needed to start work on the trailer. Over the course of the next four month we battled through snow storms, worked well into the early hours and held down our 9 to 5's. We worked from the bottom up to build and secure a new floor, walls, insulation and lighting. Whilst receiving help from the professionals to install the electrics (Thanks Carl and Reece!), the industrial theme and the use of copper was cleverly thrown together by our Neal and offsets the look perfectly right down to the bottle rail!

Now we needed some doors, enter Will's dad ... aka ...'The Legend'. We threw ideas left right and centre on how we wanted to finish the look and had the idea to create two framed doors with wood paneling. The legend came in, measured up, built, welded and attached two amazing door frames and then proceeded to rip out the old ramp with his bare hands ... OK he used a grinder, but non the less, he was impressive!

At this point we are almost complete, we just needed the sleepers to complete the bar and we were done. But this was not going to be straight forward - you see we were using hand held saws throughout our build - and it turns out that thick treated wooden sleepers were not that easy to cut through. However; we managed in the end (we had to, we already had some events booked) and all that was left to do was to Paint.

It was 01:30 the night before our first event when we finally finished everything and what a moment it was too.

We had our trailer, and now we share it with you!
