It's time to start seriously thinking about the deck. I want to design the deck in a way that it can be opened and closed so that when we're not there, the front door will be locked behind.
My neighbor has some really good design ideas, but I want to make sure what we come up with in the end we can build using used and/or repurposed parts. More to come on this.
For now, this basic idea would use cables that run through 1/2 pipe in the ceiling, down the back wall, and hook to a hand winch hidden under the trailer where the cables can be locked.
