Cooktop?

Brett - I love the cooktop....what brand and approx cost? I think I'll replace my oven and gain some countertop too! Also, in your previous coach, you had a round sink (I think). Do you have a source for that too?
Looks great - seemless upgrades.
Marc

The cooktop is a Kitchenaid model. The newer ones are not square, but it is the normal ones that you can get from Lowes. It comes with a Nat. gas or LP switchable regulator.

Your memory is correct. I had a round Stainless sink in the last coach. I have a round one ordered for this one too. It just has not come yet. I was not real happy with the way the stainless held up so we are going with the same brand, but a diffrent finish. We are going with a Black Silagranite composite.

The brand is Blanco, form homeclick.com. The faucet will be another single handle Moen with pull out sprayer, this I got a Lowes.

Thumbs up he makes it look easy!

I have got to tell you that Brett makes things look and sound easy. He makes it all up from scratch, plywood, screws, glue, different laminates and then cuts and puts it all together. He researchs and with his wife comes up with stuff that he makes up like Mr. Wizard.....looks good in pics, better in real life...the afternoon I spent with him I was a master shop vacer at best and he really helped my knowledge of all things A/S a bunch...jem

Well, the sink is in, the faucet is in and it all works like it should. Now it is time to move on to the bathroom floor!

Thumbs up Cool!

Dave and I are particularly enjoying the pictures of your rennovations. Keep 'em coming! The kitchen looks beautiful, and I'm sure you couldn't get that icky green shag carpet out of there fast enough

The flooring is Armstrong (of course) 12X12 self stick tiles.

I got it at Lowes. It is less than a buck a square foot. They have a few diffrent type, this is supposed to look like stone, but it looks like cork to me.

To prep the floor I first filled the bolt heads from attaching the plywood deck to the frame with bondo. Shaved it close to smooth and then did a quick sanding with the belt sander all over. I worked the seams between sheets to get it as even as possible. Since there was carpet stem to stern the floor was not too even where the sheets butted up to each other. I can see where I was not as able to get the plywood seams as even as I would like most people would not notice. I also statred the floor tiles at an edge of the plywood. This places a asema in the floor covering at a seam in the plywood so when the rig flexes it does not try to pop a tile loose. The plywood sheets are 4 feet wide and run left to right.

Steph,

If you would like to have a sample of all of the soft goods as a tangible reminder, let me know. I have old smelly carpet, rotted drapes and stained upholstery that I may have to give money to the trash guys to get them to haul it off. I would be happy to ship some of it to you for FREE!

Oh, gee, um, let's just let that stuff fade quietly into memory Particularly the funky fabric that looked like a torn-up brown paper bag motif. You've really got to wonder how anyone could have thought that was attractive, even 'back in the day'. What kind of fabric are you replacing that stuff and recovering the chairs with?

The colors will be a medium blue upholstery with a small yellow fleck running thru it. The carpet will be dark blue. The front drapes are an ivory background with leaves in shdes of blue. I have attached a photo of the drapery fabric. The rear drapes will be a dak blue on blue that matches the color of the carpet. We have to have some ivoyr and yellow to help the fabrics blend with the aged ABS as it has all turned slightly diffrent shades of yellow and ivory.

Very nice. I can't wait for the next update. You two are coming up with a very tasteful scheme. I like the round sink in the kitchen too. When people walk in they're going to think that's a brand new motorhome (and with the new interior and drivetrain, I guess it is)!

Are you still messing with this? I think I just read soemwhere else that u are putting carpet in that area. If so why remove the pedestal or are you taking it out for good. I just removed the chair and slipped the carpet over the pedestal.

Three words.

Stinky rotten carpet.

I am going to reinstall the same chairs, but I want to do it right. I have the garnishes that go over the baseof the chair, but I want to remove ALL of the carpet.

I give up. I cannot get the chair bases out. I guess I will not worry about them in an accident . I am going to do the lay over thing after I trim as much of the carpet away as I can.

Attached is a picture of the floor in the kitchen, from a better angle. Someone wanted to see more floor. The color of the floor looks fine before I post. If anyone wants high resolution photos PM me.
