We may be ahead but you have less I think - wait lets see - you have a 30 footer - yikes almost double ours
First being on Holidays gets me all messed about on my days. We took the axle in on Thursday and it was Ready Friday Morning - and the axle was in by the end of the day Saturday.
Today it is pouring rain - so a good time to work inside the trailer. I finished removing the rest of the items and drilled out the 3 of four wall panels. A bit more plumbing had to be cut and two plugs and light switches were removed - to reveal two results of water leaks.
Turns out the Fridge vent is one big huge source of the leaking that has rotted out a section of the floor along the side.
The front is not as damaged as we thought with only two small pieces needing replacing - both have no structural value but Peter will be lagging and lapping them into place - which will last longer than my life time for sure.
My job of course is to get the leaks under control - this means the complete removal of the fridge vent and housing. A bit of restoration on the fridge vent new seal and rivets and she will be as good as new.
And here is the best deal yet.
For the ladies out there - here is an update on the decor. I have had to change the colour scheme slightly
I was going to do the walls Moss - but then I found a huge role of.....
for only $75.00 - I saw the two couches recovered along with extra covers for the dogs and just had to change around the colour scheme to meet the pocket book.
Here is the second couch to replace the goucho. I have some fabricating to do but we came up with a great solution. This no legged flip couch will be mounted on the old goucho sliders. There will be "wings" the best way to explain on each side to make the couch 84" wide - as it is 73" at the edge of the original shelf - which we are keeping. The old goucho pulled out to 46". We are extending the bed by 9.5 inches to bring it to 55.5 inches deep.
First you will pull the whole couch out on the sliders - then it will flip down flat and meet up with the stationary section over the water tank. I am thinking of a 2 inch memory foam rollup that will have a zippered sheet bottom. This will stow behind the couch - it will custom fit the shape of the "huge front bed" along with a comforter or just a sheet if it gets real hot
The couch height will be perfect and will not stick way above the shelf like you see in so many other restorations. I will still get my 4 drawers underneath and it will just have a modern look to the old style goucho.
Now the same concept will be employed for the side Goucho - the couch Ella has donated to the cause. It will be 53 inches wide to maintain a reasonable path to the bathroom at night. The drawer front will have a custom wood facing made to match the front goucho but will be one big drawer. Both will be recovered in the same material and pattern - as they are very similar now.
All the lights (although ugly squares) will be restored and painted the Aisian Silk. Along with all the window trim pieces and possibly the curtains. With a couple of throw blankets.
The wet sand is what we have now chosen for the interior skin. But two tone in order to obtain the grass cloth effect.
The wood (existing that has made it through the years) as well as some doner pieces from ella will be stripped and given the cabernet stain.
The laminet flooring is a raised grain pine board look. Seems everyone goes for the maple strip laminet and I just wanted to be different but give the trailer that "Flight Barn" look.
The wording on the paint chip board was exactly what we were looking for in this next trailer. (hopefully a keeper this time). The tones are earthy and each one can be found on a particular spieces of "LadyBug" and we have no shortage of ladybugs in that trailer - they are everywhere.
We are going with Lexan sliders in all three upper cupboards (colour TBA) and strip lighting inside the cupboard - that will be the "house" lights switched at the door entrance.
....More updates to follow.
