Bathroom Demo Part One

Here is the bathroom before demo






We took out the wall and exposed the first plumbing


Cabinets next.



Counters and vanity came out pretty easy.


We ended the day here.


We hope to finish the bathroom this weekend.
Much more info and many more photos on the blog.

Looking good. It's amazing how Airstreams didn't change over the years. Your breakdown is giving me flashbacks of our 1979 breakdown.

Meg, when you removed the old drapes did you just toss them out? They have small slides for the tracks top and bottom. I am planning on making up a set of drapes, and if possible, I'd like to get the plastic/nylon slides. They can be reused. PM me if you still have them and are willing to pass them along.

Thanks

Howard

@blkmaikca We didn't keep them and have unfortunately thrown them away. Many of them had broken. You can buy them at Vintage Trailer supply. They are not the cheapest but for the specific use the price isn't so bad. Vintage Trailer Curtain Carriers Tiebacks

Kitchen Demo

The kitchen has been our dumping ground and holding zone. Just like our kitchen counters in our house, the counter top in Alice was collected all our stuff. Before we could begin demo we had to clean.











And then we were here!

Inner Ceiling Skin Demo

in order to take down the ceiling we had to bend and ruin the trim, so that is what we did.

Tim used a chisel and I used a flat head screwdriver. We started at opposite ends and met in the middle.







For more detailed info check out our blog post on Ceiling Skin Demo.

Inner Skin Demo

This is where we left off on Saturday. On Sunday we dressed project appropriate instead of weather appropriate. It was hot working in Alice in the 78 degree heat with long sleeve and pants, but after all the itching and discomfort from the insulation demo on Saturday we knew it was better to be hot than have our skin covered in that awful pink insulation!

https://youtu.be/wSKFz0-B9mI

After the skin was down we were left with mice nested insulation.


More info and a video of the skin demo on our blog.
