Hope your husband didn't paint that TW pink. Paint is sooooo hard to get off! We're about 1/3 the way through removing it from our TW. Pressure washing won't budge the paint. We haveused a couple of chem paint removers (sparingly) instead.
I'm sorry I haven't been posting updates, I got a little busy just working on it!
All rotted interior wood removed. New birch plywood starting to go in for walls.
Floor plan finalized and framing for cabinets and appliances is about 2/3 complete.
Tankless water heater repaired, installed in system.
All exterior lights removed and 50% replaced. We saved much of the wiring as it's a b***h to replace!
Trex water lines installed.
All running gear is in prime condition.
Windows all seal perfectly and crank up and down as easily as they ever did in 1962
The back 25% of the TW was gutted and alot of the bottom pan was compromised, plus the entire interior under the floor was filled with spray foam. We're working to repair and replace. A big job. Also we cannot find a suitable black/gray water holding tank so far. We're considering having one manufactured. $$$
The roof vents are all leaking and the hardware is shot, missing parts and rust.. We're in the middle of removing them (frames and all) and replacing with new.
It's a labor of love, but right now the emphasis is on "labor"!
I'll get some pics together and post 'em soon.
Good luck with your TW! Have fun in Shawnee!
