Location of the Trailer

I have worked on two projects in which the builders used detached houses that came with the purchase of the land…as the construction jobsite office in lieu of a temporary trailer.

This approach saved the builder the expense of providing a temporary office trailer…but in both cases…these fixed-in-place houses became farther and farther away from the construction in-progress…as each new phase of tract houses moved farther away from the first phase closest to the house office.

These growing distances resulted in a forced and unnatural isolation between the field office and the construction…especially when the distance became too great to cover on foot.

A temporary office trailer allows the trailer to be moved so that the construction office is not more than a few hundred feet from the actual construction in-progress.

I worked in building construction as a field superintendent and project manager. I have four books published by McGraw-Hill on housing construction (1995-98) under Bart Jahn, and have eight Christian books self-published through Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP). I have a bachelor of science degree in construction management from California State University Long Beach. I grew up in Southern California, was an avid surfer, and am fortunate enough to have always lived within one mile of the ocean. I discovered writing at the age of 30, and it is now one of my favorite activities. I am currently working on more books on building construction.
