Wow, a zillion great photos of your Yellowstone/Tetons trips.

Very well taken, too. Thanks very much!

What a difference a year makes!

Luckily, last year had very little snow in Connecticut. We were able to finish the renovation and -- in mid-February -- take off for parts South. Our only worry was getting through the DC area.

What a difference this year. Feet of snow!

Drawings

I finally found a way to dust off an old disc of visio files and convert them to pdf's.

Here are the layout drawings, electrical schematics and plumbing schematics that I used to renovate Tumbleweed. I'll add them in the 3 separate posts.

If monarch gives his permission, I'll post his excellent Gaucho diagram here.

Polishing

Great day for polishing in New England. Can't believe it snowed so much last week.

Finally -- the last cabinet

After two years, the overhead cabinet in the galley is finally done. Last cabinet finished!

We did enjoy the open feel without it and decided to reduce the size a bit so that it wouldn't make the trailer feel smaller than it is. Also, it will hopefully reduce the number of bruises!

Beautiful work. Did you reduce the size of the street-side cabinets as well?

Thanks, Tom and Sheridan.

Yes, we did reduce the size of both overhead sets. Also, by using inset doors rather than the old style with metal banding, we reduced weight too.
