Progress!

First phase of remodeling complete just before we "moved in".

All of the cabinetry was refaced or modified into new construction. (curbside bank and twins are new)
The dinette was added to the front where there was once a couch, gone long before we purchased the trailer. Unfortunately, this dinette was not built with proportions that we could live with, benches were narrow and table was really wide. Thats what happens when you assume someone knows what they are doing.
The bench cushions would never fit to make a bed, so my husband modified it by extending the bench depth and cutting the table's width down. I think he made it much stronger in the process.

We now have 8" memory foam mattresses on the twin beds which are quite comfy.
I chose a marmoleum floor and although I originally wanted stainless countertops, I decided (for budget concerns) to use the left over marmoleum on the counter tops. So far, its great. Just need to decide what to do for a backsplash.

The refer side counter is all new construction resulting in a higher countertop and several shelves of storage under it. Originally it was floor to ceiling cabinetry with original furnace, 1970'a refer and clothes closet.

We had them leave a 24" clear space between the dinette bench on the street side and the counter so that we can fit our dog crates.

I had this amount of work hired out as I needed to use the trailer as soon as possible for my business and couldn't wait the years it would take for us to do it ourselves. Much more expensive, but at least the work got done!

Lots more things are needed, but the trailer has been quite useful and comfortable to use while we slowly add the rest at our own pace.
