Interior Remodel Shots

My fist AS, an '85 29 ft sovereign...pretty much gutted the interior two years ago (not a lot of time to work on it, so the going has been slow)...before and after pics attached with props to David Winick for design inspiration :-)

I'm in the reclaimed wood business, so cladding and countertops are reclaimed longleaf heartpine from Mountain Lumber Company in Virginia.

Still a fair amount of work to be done...gonna add underlit shelving over the countertops...and have to finish the bathroom...other random stuff...does it ever end :-)

Love the wood counter top and the SS drawers.

Looks Great!

What are your thoughts about a table?

Nice job will the bath be new or redone? I'm still looking for ideas on a center shower stall rear bed.

Stonew98, very nice look. SS drawers look smart against that wood.

Looks nice. Like the range top. Thinking of similar and a convection microwave.

Thanks all :-)

I have a shelf built at the end of the SS drawers for a convection/microwave...didn't want to look at it...prefer the long empty countertop as I think it makes the AS look roomier.

Bathroom will be a mix of new and restored...will post pics but same general idea as the rest but using aluminum on the walls.

Still pondering on a table for the seating area...want to keep it looking open/roomy so may do a slatted table that you can see through....

Can't really see it, but rebuilt the bedroom area to fit a queen bed (had a double)...I'm 6'4" so it makes a difference :-)

@ Mr to link up sometime...I'm in the near west end of Richmond

Flooring is Farbo Marmoleum graffito...if you have not checked out his site, look at David Winick's work on was nice enough to tell me what he uses...looks great, even when you screw it up ;-)

Really Nice work! You should be proud of the finished results! I never was a big fan of that 70-80 decor...
