I haven't decided yet. it kinda depends on which way we go with the cushions. Finding a cool pattern/color combo for the cushions is much harder than finding a complimentary color from Lowes in Laminate.

devil in the details... once again!

OK, I did a little finish trimming this evening, just for fun. This trailer is becoming a collection of unfinished pieces, and I was just DYING to put the finishing touches on at least ONE part!

Let's go inside....

First off, I got my blinds in, and decided to test fit the 2 on the sides. They look better than I imagined. I couldn't be happier with them! All 4 windows only cost me about $150 delivered. These are the micro 1/2" natural aluminum blinds. Any thicker and it would have taken up valuable floor space! ha!

One problem with the blinds that I haven't decided how to handle yet is the openers. They protrude into the blind space and make them bow out. I'm thinking about seeing if I can get openers with reversed handles, or possibly reverse the bottom bracket, so they stick out to the edge of the blinds, and I wouldn't have to do any cutting! We'll see.

These blinds came with little brackets that hold them close to the wall, too, but I didn't install those yet, because the final window trim isn't in, because I need to brake some thin pieces of aluminum to hide the wall interiors, and I can't get over to my friend's to do the braking until after we get back from Beaufort SC this weekend. How's that for a long excuse?

Next, I bent the aluminum trim to go along the edge of the sofa area. This will hide the thin plywood edge, and give it a little bling on the divider line between the cushions and bottom cabinets.

I had them cut the pieces into 8 foot strips so it wouldn't cost me hundred$ to ship, and wouldn't you know it... the piece needed to be 8'3"!!!! so, I cut it back enough to bet one piece on the last curve where it heads into the galley cabinet. I didn't secure all that yet, because I still need to final fit the AC unit

I said this trailer was a lot of unfinished projects, didn't I? In fact, the belly pan is still missing 2 center panels! ha!

Here's the view from the door. You can see where the piece ends before the last curve. I thought it better to splice there, than right by the door. Who knows... no one will notice it but me, I bet!

Next, I trimmed out the first of 2 magazine rack/cubby holes. Using the same trim as the couch, only run deep into the opening, rather than around it, I trimmed the 4 sides, then put the perfed aluminum panel under the bottom one, screwed everything down, and used J moulding to cap off the top of the perfed aluminum to keep it from snagging on things.

Took me about an hour, and $50 worth of aluminum trim. ha!

Pictures are worth a thousand words here, so here goes...

Awesome work JP. I really like the magazine cubby with the edge-molding and perfed aluminum sheeting. It trims out the wood perfectly.

What did you use to trim the couch?

Your project looks awesome. I've been following it along the way. Great job! We are in the middle of a remodel and would like to know, what did you use to trim out the couch and where did you get it?

Thanks and keep up the good work..

Oh one other thing. What are you going to use on the counter top?

It's been a while! Lots of little updates.

first and foremost, I have the drain and vent lines running to the tank... or at least where the tank will GO! It took a great deal of modifying the cabinet to make it fit. Lesson learned for the next one, for sure! run your plumbing FIRST!

OK, here's some pics. I painted the top pipe silver, since it's going to be exposed between the cabinet and (yet to be created) top locker. The bottom cabinet slides right over it. Couldn't be a better fit!

Next, I trimmed out the opening in the side of the fridge cabinet with that cool aluminum extrusion. The same as I did for the magazine rack across from it. Looks really cool! It's the first thing you see when you walk in the door.
