Ok, Got the two patches in the floor and the liquid nails that held down the 1/8 ply up.... Man under the fridge they had hardy backer down.... What you find..... Ready to put the wood floor in... Will have pics up tomorrow..

Also time to start rebuilding the cabinets.... leaving for Zion next friday,, I gotta quit ripping stuff apart before I leave for a trip...

Have everything out to the back closets before the bathroom.... Saving that for after the trip.,,,,

Ok, got my new floor it, except for the bathroom, but thats the winter project... I put it in going across for 3 reasons...
One: to make the trailer look wider than longer..
two: easier to put in.
Three: Wanted to stop and start it backup again easily.. (for the bathroom)

Working on the dinette and bunks today ... then on to the kitchen....

Ok will get some pics up late thursday, Gonna start putting the AS back together in the morning... Hope it all fits right.... A lot of cabinets were pretty beat up and fell apart taking them out... So measurements weren't the same as original but I think it should all work out.....

Finished staining the new cabinets today... Won't get doors built yet but it will be functional for our trip,,, I think,,,, Wish me luck...

Ok, no pics yet... Got dark by the time I got home... But I did get some walls in and the bunks, The dinette half in.... Will try to get some pics in the morning,, the bunks turned out really well... I even hopped up on the top bunk with no sag or movement and I'm 205 lbs... We are suppose to leave for Zion tomorrow night but I just don't know if I can get it done.... Got to get the kitchen back in...

There are no cabinet doors on and won't be for this trip, and lots of trim missing too... but I hope I can at least get it usable... Heading out a week sooner than I thought so the rush is on...

Glad to hear you are you using your Airstream while you work on it. Ours gets a little more functional each trip. Having running water and the toilet working was a major plus for us! Have fun in Zion. John

Bunks

Ok, here are the pics I promised (for the past two days) No trim on them But I will have time later... The Bunks are low, but I didn't want them running through the window, And they are only 2' wide and full length. Wide enough for me but made for my 2.5 and 5.5 year old..

I cut the ladder into the plywood face for my 5.5 year old to climb up and her younger brother... storage underneath.

The dinette is small, but my wife and I sit on the ends and the kids in the middle... It might be a push for 4 adults...(knees touching) I am still keeping the table in the front as well, so when the kids go to bed we can stay up and play games..

The dinette will also make into a bed.. storage underneath also..

I have some foam for the bunks but need to get something made up for the dinette...

Now onto the kitchen.......

Sweet Work

Your craftsmanship is great to see.
I hope you enjoy it with the family.
My family has grown from preteen to adult in the blink of an eye.
Enjoy.
Thanks for sharing.

That's looking real nice, Jason! I'll stay tuned to your re-model, always fun to see what craftsmen (and women) do with the space. -tim
