Looking for wisdom on any/all of the following projects we are working on: (and, would I get more responses if I posted them individually in the various sub-categories or is a general request ok?)
Our Airstream is a 31' 1972 Sovereign
. We plan to keep it parked on land, so its mobility isn't very important...
The gaucho was removed by previous owner. Apart from doing a custom build, has anyone had experience with a pre-made solution? Are there replacements available? We'd ideally like something that can serve as seating and a bed for me and hubby.
Replacing Water Heater with Electric
We currently have a 9.9 gallon Bowen gas heater. We are doing away with all propane, so we want to replace with electric. Can we buy a residential unit? Can anyone recommend a specific model that has worked/fit? Any success with tankless?
Rebuilding Kitchen cabinets:
Ours have been demo'd. Just need something simple to put the sink back into and a small stove. (any stove recs?) Thinking Ikea butcher block counters. We could custom build something (to account for wheel well, etc) but has anyone had success with any off the shelf solution? (We have considered Lowe's kitchen cabinets or Ikea kitchen islands, just need to modify them to account for wheel well, etc)
Our vinyl tile is in bad shape. I anticipate the subfloor isnt perfect either. Since it will be stationary, we are thinking of putting a sheet of vinyl fake wood over top. (specifically it's called Inspire - cushioned, fiberglass backed sheet flooring, from Lowe's) Has anyone used this successfully? The employee at Lowe's thought I could over the existing tile without removing it. Also thought about painting the vinyl tile with deck/floor paint and stenciling it.
Thanks in advance for sharing your experiences!
