Hey, nice couches! Where did you get them, do they fold out? Mind if I ask about cost?
Great cabinet work too!

Hi Marvin and Annie, your Argosy looks like home. I love the cabinetry, counter and couches. Nice tones throughout. Very sharp!

This is the start of the pantry. We are using the same full extention drawer slides as the others. There will be sliding doors that cover the front of the pantry and closet to the right.

Things are starting to wind down here for the winter to start. I thought we could get this finished before winter came but it was just too much work. I got the bathroom vanity and shower in this week and the plumbing finished, tested and winterized.

Very Nice Work

Annie, Marvin:

I know how hard it must have been to get this far.

Can you find a covered space that will allow work to continue this winter or are you going to head for the South and go at it again next spring?

Some things that might be of interest to some.

The flooring we used weighs 240 lbs. I don't know how much the carpet and padding weighs in a 30 ft. trailer but if anyone knows I would like to know.

The front storage compartment and the table (not yet installed) weighs 58 lbs. Again I don't know how much the gucho, table and small cabinet weighs.

The new couches weigh 163 lbs. so that makes a total weight in the very front of the trailer 221 lbs. not counting the foor. I don't know how this would compare to the orginal weight. When we started this project it wasn't going to get this involved.

The kitchen weighes 65 lbs. with another couple doors to be added. I think that would be about equal to the orginal counter.

To date we have $12,399.28 invested in parts and material, plus $1500.00 to Annie's brother Chuck for his carpentery skills and $370.00 to a friend who helped me with things Annie couldn't or didn't have time because she was working at her job.

I have 653 hours in the trailer and it still isn't painted.

So I figure if I was paid what I am worth $100.00 per hour that woulld be $65,300.00 plus $12,399.28 plus $1870.00 in sublet is a total of $78,569.00

But wait........ Annie says she isn't paying me s--- so I guess we now have $13,269.28

Inside space here is very expensive, so that is out of the question. We plan on going to Florida to my daughters for a couple weeks maybe in Jan.

I made a mistake on my addition in this post. Must have had one to many glasses of wine So since I am about to that same place tonight I thought I should set things straight. The $13,269.28 should be $14,269.29.

Considering that might get you the cheapest POC SOB about 13' long with beds that pop out the sides swathed in canvas, you are way ahead of the game. Nothing that comes off an assembly line today can match the quality build you are doing.

It is, to an extent, your representation of art. Some people carve, others paint, some restore cars, and your art (for the moment at least) is the trailer.

I am greatly enjoying watching your progress.
