Link to my remodel

Here is the link to my remodel of a 1975 Argosy. I found it in a hedge row in Triune, TN.
It was completely gutted except for the rear bath. It was originaly a center twin bunk. I've been putting it back together on a budget.
So far I've stripped it, cleaned it repeatedly, and started putting it back together similar to the original style.
It will have bunks on either side similar to the original design. Matching cabinets on either side, one with a sink and the other with a cooktop. And a mini-fridge on the sink side.
I've still got a long way to go, the bunks are basically in, the kitchen cabinets are basically in, the new carpet is in. I've got to do a lot of little trimming here and there. Next will be finish painting/staining, major plumbing and some minor electrical.
I'll add photos as I go along.

Yes, I hope so to. I took it down to the bare wood floor and used 2 gallon of bleach cleaning it. I replaced the bad floor sections and used Great Stuff sealer around a lot of the cracks and holes. I've still got to mouse proof the drain hole, I'll finish that when I do the plumbing. Thats the only thing about the belly pan being intact, its too good to take off, but it hides alot of stuff too.

Roof AC is shot

Well, I had the HVAC repair crew out to look at my Argosy's roof ac.....not good. Although the fan motor blows hard, when we took the shroud off, the copper piping was rotten and broken going to the compressor. So....where is the CHEAPEST place to get a replacement roof AC? Or a good used one?

Bath area

Got the sink and tub resurfaced blue, the toilet is back together. I used a sheet of aluminum and cut it to fit on top of the existing aluminum frame and screwed it down with self tapping stainless screws. I've still got more work to do, but at least its coming together.
