Follow-up appointment with the neurosurgeon today...
Happy to report that he has released me to return to work on 17DEC12.
It's been 12 weeks since the accident and I am glad to be back on my feet.

Looking forward to tackling several small projects on "Katy" in January!

Sounds good.

Try to keep both feet on the ground on the next project.

Decided to remove carpet (18 years old and looks like it) and replace with engineered bamboo.

How do you remove the barrel chair without unbolting it from the floor?

Pull up the little black lever that allows the chair to swivel and lift chair from the
Base:

If you lift up on both black plastic tabs on the sides of the chair arms and pull straight up on the chair, the chair will come off the post that is sits on.

Doing the floor with wood laminate or engineered wood is one of the projects on my list this year.

When I changed my carpet, I got alot of different quotes but most would only do the work T&M. I had removed everything, front chairs, couch, barrel chair, it was wide open,so I decided to do it myself. If you save the old carpet and use it as a pattern, I found it wasn't that difficult, turned out real good, better than orignal in alot of areas like under the couch where they didn't finish cutting and fashening in carpet. Because it doesn't show .I will say though, they didn't skimp on the staples especially on the doghouse cover.l

Barnacle Bill,


The "boss" (DW) has not decided what flooring she wants in the cab area.
I'm standing by...

New carpet?
Same flooring as the rest of the coach?
Decisions, decisions

She has chosen Golden Zebra Strand Bamboo from Lumber Liquidators for the main cabin area, bath, and bedrooms.

Note: it rained this weekend and I noticed some moisture in one of the cabinets above the dinette.
Will wait until this coming weekend to seal the roof with Dicor (Or Eternabond if needed).
Don't want to install the new flooring until I'm sure the leak is stopped.

Gloran,


I concur, although I am not looking forward to stripping the doghouse.

So far this project is pretty straightforward.

As the couch and chair are out, I will take to the local upholsterer. DW has said she will recover the window trim, short wall by the doorway and the pullout drawers under the couch and bed.

Here is the material she has chosen:

It's a brown vinyl that resembles leather (pleather?)

More to come

So I see, based on Lumber Liquidators web site, that you're going the nail/glue route with the flooring. I think I'm going to go the click route for myself. Seems like a floating floor is a lot easier to put down. My only decision is whether to go laminate or engineered wood. I like Lumber Liquidators prices and have one locally as well.

92landyacht,


At the moment my thinking is to level the chipboard flood with floor patch and cover with 1/4 inch plywood (glued and screwed), then nail the floor to the plywood.

However, I have been reading about Ernie Eckland on some of the other forums and joined his Yahoo Group to see many of his installations:

http://autos.groups.yahoo.com/group/...epair/messages

He is a consummate professional and his flooring jobs are awesome.

I believe he recommends gluing the engineered flooring, have to confirm with him to be sure.

Regards,

Yup, Dicor Lap Sealant, I'm going back up on the roof...

DW told me "I understand getting back on the horse that threw you..."
She is right of course, I will ask my son or a good friend to lend a hand.
