So after that news that meant no golf for me no matter how I slice it. I was really down last night - so my girls got a special treat and were allowed to cuddle with me - ha they took up the whole bed!!
Since I have been home I have been racking my brain as to getting everything set for my surgery. With the wrist so painful I had to plan recouping in the CCD to save on the distance to access things. But I could not get into the bathroom -
I thought I could see the computer better by removing the privacy sheild. But now I am going to either put in a sliding top or a very expensive articulating arm to mount my IMac on so that I have access from the bedroom and from the main part of the trailer.
so the resulting reno has started Ha - method to some really crazy madness in my life I guess and reason we can still smile through all this.
So first was I needed the long awaited 30amp plug and water connection at the driveway instead of running hoses and cords to the house - an accident waiting to happen. So Mr. Handy Man set too and within a half day the new RV Service Stand was done.
Haily needed to inspect of course to make sure Peter was using the right parts.
And then Haily and Taz were so happy that spring had sprung they were doing a dance...
I have spent a considerable amount of time in my sweet ModPod...and you know how it is with these airstreams...they are never just quite right.....if only...if only tee hee.
I have never liked the dinette - the seats are darn uncomfortable and the table is to darn high and squeaks and rattles all the time - so very annoying. It is a major task to drop down into a bed and well to have friends sleep over the dinette is about big enough for kids.
I have found that any serious social dinners are all outside - BBQ of the Camping Kind!!! And the intimate dinners out of the elements are usually only dinner for 2! So the configuration of inside eating certainly does not have to be the standard dinette.
So out it came the whole lot! And Peter is going to instal the dinette into the former LadyBug - pending new name???? Cause he is tall and he likes a dinette...
Here is the new layout.
I do like the desk makeup but never use it as a desk. I am going to have an aluminum rack made to take a microwave and toaster oven. That always sits on the desk. I like the drawers they are very handy. And I usually just pile stuff under the orange chair that never ever gets used for anything.
The Converter position will move slightly along with the propane detector that has never worked - hmm I would smell propane before it is ever detected - even sleeping tee hee So a new one is on the list.
For the back corner instead of re-routing the plugs and power I will put in easy access sliders to match the over heads. And there will be access to storage space for towels and blankets and things of that nature. To Close in beside the drawers there will be two little cupboards that will hold the extra pillows for the pull out bed.
The pull out bed will be a full 6' plus the stationary L part close to the door - that will make it a wonderful bed for those who are taller than 6' Ha means we get out own beds!! means when we travel together I will finally get some sleep. Turns out I sleep like a baby in this cocoon when I have the bed to myself!
I am going to match the back of the one seat to the night table and obtain the black mottled formica that they are still using in the Euro models, along with trying to get 7 of the drawer pulls to match.
The back of the seat will have an open compartment to stuff shoes in. On the side there will be a door and a place for another storage bin. In front of the wheel well seating there will be more storage for our favourite bottles of wine.
With this set up I will be able to get into the over head cupboard so much easier being the shorty I am.
I like the white drawer fronts and over head cupboards but white counter sucks - so I am changing that out to the grey/white/black boomerang pattern. There are four tops the night table, two sections in the galley and the desk top. I am ditching the orange and going for Sage and Red.
I have not decided on the table design yet - but it will not be used as a bed at all. It will be snapped off quickly and easily and dropped below the bed draw slide out. Or if they make a thin telescoping pole other than those massive ones used in the Panamerica model that take up all the bloody leg room.
I am thinking that it might have some sort of extension to it that allows for more than 2 people to eat. And I will have folding but sturdy stools to sit on the other side like a bar. So I have some thinking and research to do on that.
I am changing out the chinsy blinds for new ones with the aluminum valance.
I also hate the bedroom curtain - works like crap - in fact it does not work at all. As the privacy shield has never stayed put since I have had it. So out it came the curtain I mean. I am going with a more Hospital type curtain that is sheer light and is still private.
I have taken the privacy shield off and having to rework the rubber screws I am hoping that I might come up with a different type of track that it could go into to make it more sturdy and not vibrate out of its screws.
But before I go to far on that I think I will get the trailer wheels balanced as I don't think they have ever been balanced. I do need new tires now anyway as they have dry rot!
Last little reno will be some compartments up in the overheads to keep the baskets in place - ha they crash forward every trip - they must to the dance every road trip LOL.
And that is about it.
