Smile Where To Start??

I have a gutted 73 trade wind, 25'. Is there a checklist of how to approach fixing it up? I'll be hiring and bartering since I have no skills. Do I start with the outside and the bottom of the trailer? Do I do the inside first? Floor first? I'm in Seattle, so if there are experienced Airstream renovators in town, I'd love to hear about them. I want to do it all eco. I have lots of salvaged stuff - lockers, stainless steel carts, etc, I want to use in it. Hoping to start in Jan or Feb, finish by end of August.

Have been in touch with a guy in Blaine. Local would be ideal since I could watch it all happen. Plus, don't want to have to pay tons to have it shipped far.

I read somewhere that it's important to build with movement in mind. I'll mostly be living in mind, but at some point may use it to travel around. Thanks.
