Minimalist restoration of Caravel

Hi all,

I am trying to keep it the original condition. I am not a big fan of cushions, so I got rid of original cushions came with the Caravel. So far, I spent about $300 on the plywood and flooring. I did some plumbing and still need to repaint the bathroom and kitchen. It also needs some detail work, but I am happy with the progress.

Your Caravel looks really nice. I like the nice clean look without the cushions.
What did you use for your flooring?

Thanks for your comments.

I used the wire brushed walnut engineering hardwood from Home Depot.

I would sleep on the hard surface with a pillow and a blanket. It is good for the back.

My guess you don't have a bunch of folks requesting to spend the night either ;-)

Enjoy,
