Wow, it looks absolutely beautiful! What an inspiration to make me want to get started on more renovations. I just bookmarked your Blog and look forward to following it. You have really sharp taste!

Nice job! We are going through a similar redo and I've removed the bulkhead wall separating the galley and bunk room. It really opens up the trailer. I'm curious as to what you did with your flooring. Did you use laminate? And it looks like you used bamboo for your countertop. Please keep us posted on your progress.

I wonder what smells worse, the pit bull or the mouse house? Sad to say I can identify with wondering if that smell ever goes away. We had a mouse house/hotel for several hundred of the creatures...yuck! I will follow your blog...love your work.

I'm guessing you used Kerdi board, the orange waffle stuff, if so did you find a example of rv use anywhere else; just curious?

Your trailer looks great, one of the best looks I've ever seen. Thanks for sharing it. I think I can safely speak for some of the other readers and say that we are all very interested in three additional pieces of information - which specific brand materials did you use, where can we get them, and how will they hold up to over-road use. I, for one, am anxiously watching your work in hope of bringing some of the same products and your ideas to my own Safari. Don't worry that you might be feeding us too much detail - that isn't possible - we are all here to learn from each other.

Hey it looks great except for those wires hanging around - how about just cutting them and throwing away since there not used for anything?

Just kidding - but seriously - it looks FANTASTIC - SWEET & AWESOME!!!

I think I know your tile selection - is it Brio Blend Cool Pool?

What is the thickness of the wood you used for the countertops? And what did you seal it with?


Thanks!!
