Everything really CAN come together!

We finished up "Brutis" (finally came up with a name for the AS) a couple of weeks ago. Finally I have some time to post the beginning to the end of interior remodeling (we're vegetable farmers & greenhouse owners). When we purchased Brutis, the floor rot was hidden by the couch & beds. I did know about one spot, but figured we could handle it! Lots of frustrations later, all leaks are fixed and floors are solid again. Brutis is now parked for a few months in LaPorte, Indiana for the hunting season. I spent the night out there w/hubby and we were toasty! Just got a Honda 2000 generator & she purred like a kitten.
The curtains were done by Silver Threads & are beautiful. The pictures don't do them justice. Thanks Tammy! We opted for carpet since most of our camping is in the fall/winter and it just seems alot warmer. Did linoleum in bath. Rebuilt couch frame due to rot. I have the nightstand in my shop now
while I finish up the new top, since the old top was ruined by water from the rear window. Just waiting for the finish to dry!

Nice work! It's a great feeling to be finished, isn't it? I know our trailer will still require tweaks here and there, but at least we can use it for camping.
