New dexter axles, 40% replaced subfloor with marine grade, proper hold down steel plates fore and aft, dual 12v Whynter fridge/freezers, tankless belly vented water heater, composting toilet, capped black tank. Hand made furniture using primarily select pine and 3/4 ply with cutouts throughout for lightness and ventilation. Only furniture ties to interior 5052-040 skins was loosely on bathroom walls. Cubic mini Grizzly 18k BTU wood stove for heat.

Do enjoy your well earned pleasure.
Beautiful outcome for your efforts!
My favorites are the crescent moon, the bathroom vanity, and the wood stove, the built in reading nook. And the overall hominess.

Thanks for sharing.

Are you by chance planning to be on the Owyhee River for your three weeks in Eastern Oregon?

Really nice work. It does feel homey with the wood. Did you do more in-depth description of your remodel or a blog?
Enjoy your travels

I didn't. I did post my patches on Airforums though. I don't think 1yr is enough time to allow blogging the journey - in the weeds the whole time. Here are some patches :

Great Job! I thought about getting a kitchen faucet like the one you have, but in the end wasn't sure a magnet would be enough to secure it while underway. To ease my curiosity, I would love to know if the hand sprayer stays attached to the column while underway!
