Wild Turkey and Valium are NOT a good combo! One or the other......
She will roll just fine, cabinets will be beautiful, and you'll be ready to actually USE Slim when they are done. Just think! Hey, if we didn't explode Little Girl varnishing all the cabinets in her, I doubt your cabinet maker will. It'll all be good!
Deep breath now...

Kay

Thanks Kay! I needed that dose of moral support. And Little Girl has turned out beautifully. If Slim is half as nice I will be happy. And on the bright side, if Slim does explode, I can park him next to the steps for another two years.

Slim has left the building! Er, well the yard anyway. Safely delivered to the cabinet shop with no problems. Yay!

And yes that is aluminum foil in the windows. Poor gals curtains, it's been HOT in south Alabama.

Yeah!
Do you have curtains for Slim yet? I backed mine with a blackout liner from Joann's to keep them from fading, keep out light, and keep out heat. We also took the plunge this summer and painted the roof white. While we have not had a hot summer here, we think that it does work for heat reflection based on the warmer days we have had.
What wood are you using for your cabinets? Just curious...

Kay

Hey Kay, no curtains yet. We will definitely need them I just haven't completely decided what I want and I didn't want to do anything until we finished working on the big stuff. I like the idea of curtains for the color/pattern options but I like how sleek the roller shades look. Decisions, decisions.
Our cabinet guy suggested red birch. It is readily available, inexpensive and can be stained to match the existing cherry? mahogany? finish. We will actually be reusing the closets because the material is all in good shape. We are upgrading the beds, couches and bathroom. Eventually the kitchen will also be upgraded but budget and time mean its gotta wait a little longer. I am also going to do a couple accent walls in eastern red cedar. It was cut off family land and my husband sawmilled and planed it all. I'm pretty excited about that part. Here's hoping the cabinet guy works fast. The anticipation is going to drive me nuts.

ALANSD- would you believe I finally found that thing over the weekend when we had to clean out the shed in order to take the old stuff to the cabinet guy? I carried it to the house and put it on the bar. I will pick up a FedEx box today and send it your way if you still need it. Is the address still the same?

A little more camper work this weekend. Made poor husband drag Slim home from the cabinet shop so I could work on windows. And then we had to drag it back on Sunday. Hubs is convinced I'm nuts, good thing he loves me. It was worth it though, windows are so much better! A couple of pics, including my assistant. Click image for larger version

Alan, I did. It is the small D seal. They seem to work well and look a lot better. Get the gasket adhesive also. It is messy but sticks much better than the peel and stick backing. To remove the old gasket I used a gasket scraper and then sprayed brake cleaner on the old glue and gunk, scraped again and then polished with a buffer and scotch brite pad. I removed the operators, soaked them in brake cleaner, polished, dosed with Kroil (love Kroil) and put them back on. They work like new now. Its somewhat tedious but not hard at all.

Did the fridge part come in yet?
