I'm surprised at some of the comments on this thread.
I remodel bathrooms for a living.
Fancy ones in fancy houses.
I recently finished one that reached $40K.
Am presently doing the 'kids' bath in a home that will surely reach $30.
They are perfect when I'm done. I stand behind them and I take great pride in my work.
But ya know, sometimes there's a few pieces of sheet rock scraps stashed between the studs and there is sawdust in there from drilling holes for pipes and wires. Under the tub there is dust.
There is my fingerprints on the ceiling joists from where I wiped off some flux that dripped on me.
I might drill a hole in the wrong place and have to redrill it.
And dog gone it I forgot to take that box of screws and my speed square out from under the bench in the shower before I nailed on the cement board.
Today I was stripping off wallpaper and scraped a bit slimey paste off my taping knife in the hole I cut into the sheetrock to change the plumbing
I don't give a darn about those silly things.
And the next guy to see them - in 40 years - when it's remodeled again - wont give a darn either.
You people seem to think a guy has the time to run around with a vacuum cleaner and clean up every particle of dust. And of course do it all on a bid that is 30% less than the other guys who bid the job.
What you wont see me do is over kill the job - use 4 nails, 3 screws and a tube of liquid nails when 4 nails will suffice.
And you wont see me miss a nail plate or a wire staple or a pipe hanger or a ground wire like the homeowner jobs I sometimes take apart and redo.
I don't post a lot on these forums but I do read about a lot of the "restorations" and repairs people make on these trailers. And sometimes I just shake my head at the shoddy, goofy schemes and fixes and am amazed at the oohs and aahs over the finished product which I suspect wont last more than a few miles down a rough road.
And then have the audacity to complain about a few specs of debris that got left behind.
So many of you haven't a clue what goes into making something beautiful, and outstanding and lasting. Don't seem to understand what is important.
My old Overlander is still going strong. It's warm and watertight and it works perfect as it is. Yeah, I suppose If I pulled the fridge out I may see a rivett that got left behind or a scrap of tin that wasn't swept up or a piece of plastic that got cut off nearly 40 years ago.
But does that really matter?
Not to me.
Not to someone who knows how to build beautiful things that last.
