Warm Weather Prevails!!

We waited all winter for the warm weather so we could work on the camper, and then when we finally got the warm weather, we had to halt work for the black water tank to get finished by the fiberglass company. Unfortunately, he had a very important order for the Military that took priority over our poop tank! I guess we can't blame, him but what was really a couple of weeks seemed to be years! So Ta! Da! The black water tank is finished!!
Now that the black water tank is finished, my husband made a new floor over the tank to set the toilet on. He then tiled that and put the rest of the bathroom cabinets in. He even put a seal around the tub, cut the dreaded hole in the new floor for all the drains and everything.
The fiberglass company is working on the grey water tank now. We are praying that he can get that done quickly, as we want to try everything out for a trial run for Memorial Day weekend! I know, we have lofty hopes, but it seems to be going together fast.
Now everything has started to get fastened down and finished. On Saturday and Sunday, I spent the days stripping the last of the furniture that hadn't been done and then staining it all, while my husband started to get everything screwed in and in place. Above you can see that he screwed the bed into the wall after sealing all the seams on the floor with silicone.
Over the weekend and on Monday, we were able to get the following attached and in place:
  • Beds
  • Bathroom Closets
  • Electrical Box
  • Tub
  • Tub wall
  • Vanity
  • Overhead mirror
  • Built, stained and installed a new kitchen wall between bedroom and kitchen sink.
  • Kitchen pantry
  • Goucho
  • Shelf behind goucho
  • Door-in-a-door clasps put back together
  • Upper Kitchen cabinet installed

We are really booking along right now, and will get up pictures as soon as we have time to breathe! My biggest fear was that we would go really fast on getting everything together, and I will be in a crunch to get the curtains made. My fears may be realized at this pace!

  1. Oh my goodness you guys have been busy! You have officially flown past me now, and it all looks absolutely great!

    Good luck on the rest, and I think you're going to make your Memorial Day deadline.
