Where did you find the shower head?

TG, the only walls we painted were the front and back end caps. I don't know if a PO painted the berthing area walls, but we just scrubbed them really well. The old peeling wallpaper stuff was covered up by a PO with some vinyl, leather looking material. It looks pretty nice in most areas. And we're using the shower head that was already there.

Thanks Doug, but we had a lot of help from our professional carpenter, Jim. My mom and I did everything we could, but relied on Jim for a lot!!

Sally, I have to admit that when I read your initial posts a few months ago when you were looking for a trailer and were asking alot of questions, I thought to myself that you were getting in way over your head. I am glad to say I was wrong as you did a heck of a job in a short time and your Argosy looks great! Looks like you'll be ready to visit those 5 remaining states soon!

WOW!!! It's gorgeous! You're going to have such a lot of fun camping in your beautiful Bee.

I love the sink in your bathroom; where did you find that? Was it pretty easy putting in the new counter? We bought a new bathroom faucet, but it's not going to fit on the original sink. Since we have some cracking of the old plastic, I'm toying with the idea of putting in a new countertop. I'd like to see more pictures of that project, do you have them on another thread?

Anyway, thanks for sharing the fruits of your labors; you did a fantastic job!

Thanks dougsale, I actually felt way in over my head during most of the rehab. I have yet to do much work on the exterior caulking. I'm just glad I'm in sunny Arizona.

Sharon,
Here's a link to the sink... RV Sink We used the old counter top/sink as a pattern and cut the new counter top out of a pretty peice of plywood. I put on about 8 coats of Urathane, with light sanding between each coat. My carpenter did the cutting and installation. All the pictures I've posted are on my BLOG. Here's a few more pictures of the bathroom... sally's blog: The Big House and the Little House
