Yes Steve, I think the trim will work nicely. Thanks

Marzboy, Thanks very much. In January when I started, I actually thought I could be done by March 15th! A little optimistic. The hardest and dirtiest part (frame cleaning) is behind you. It gets better all the time!

Vernon,
That is a nice pit ya got there! I will be throwing a few slabs of ribs on the BBQ shortly. I'm still working on Abby though!

Enjoy your Memorial day and raise a glass in honor of our fallen warriors and the families left to live with their loss forever.

Hello y'all,
I got a few things done today. I went to Lowe's this morning and got some toilet flange bolts. When I got back I installed the toilet. I did a function ckeck. Not enough water. In the last four months there was someone that decided the toilet water line was a nice place to lay eggs. After I got that all cleaned out I reinstalled the toilet. Function check OK. This afternoon I cleaned and cleaned and cleaned. I got the bathroom cabinet installed along with BBQing some country style ribs for the family. All in all a good day.

Lance you must feel flush with success.
You are the King and now you can sit on your throne.
Thomas J Crapper would be proud of you.
You certainly didn't "waste" any time getting it done.
That's enough levity for now.

Here's a couple of pics of the "cutting board". Finally dug it out of the garage. Let me know if this is the one you're looking for. It's in OK shape, the bottom is a little rough.

Hello my good friends,
I didn't get as much done today as I thought I would. It seems to be like that sometimes. I spent a good portion of the day at my children's school watching them get academic awards and sing in a talent show. I have my priorities
I did manage to do some cleaning in the galley. I should have covered everything before I started cleaning and grinding on the frame. It would have saved me a few hours of cleaning. Rust settles in the smallest cracks! I have both of the closets installed now along with the sliding door to the bath. I still have a few minor adjustments. That was a chore! A full day tomorrow and I should be all done with the interior. Just the twin beds remain. Here are a few pics.

It's been a long time coming, but you are finally there. You have done a remarkable transformation, and it's refreshing to see someone NOT put sheet flooring down. A couple false bottoms in the cabs and you won't even see those pipes!

Thanks Steve. I will put the false floor in the closet as soon as I get the ducting run for the furnace. Hasn't arrived yet. I took the picture of the pipes just to show how happy I am that my measurements for the gray tank inlets and vents were correct. The tank company putting the inlet in the wrong location was not a problem. (sigh of relief)
I'm glad so many people seem to like the floor. When I was looking at the beautiful wood in my garage back in January, I just thought it would be a shame to cover it up with vinyl. I hope it lasts a long time. If it gets ugly I can always just lay some new laminate or cork flooring over it. Do they make rusty orange colored cork?

Another hot day in Texas! This morning I installed the A/C shroud. I think it blends in better than when it was white. I have the curbside twin bed in. One bed to go and ill be done with the interior.
