    I hadn't planned on painting the cabinets, , but I think the extra work is going to be worth it. 20190402_210442.jpg 20190403_011415.jpg 20190404_014144.jpg

    All upper cabinets and doors have been painted and rehung. The next task was to complete the insides. 20190403_223738.jpg 20190403_235441.jpg 20190403_212758.jpg 20190403_213711.jpg 20190405_153157.jpg

    So, it suddenly occured to me,while fiddling with the radio, that I'd never heard the horn blow... 20190404_171854.jpg

    Apparently it's really loud....:D

    On the the upper kitchen. Cabinets and walls.

    This pic was taken after I had sanded the cabinets and taken the microwave out.

    Note ..the little spice shelf and the coffeemaker location. Hard to tell in this pic. But the coffeemaker covers alot of the kitchen window. I want to move it up, and mount it to the bottom of the upper cabinets I think I have a plan. 20190401_215631.jpg

    I removed the coffeemaker and the range hood. I'm glad I did..lots of stink bugs, wasps, and yuk. 20190401_215655.jpg 20190401_231209.jpg
    I also tore out the bottoms of cabinets and shelves. New paneling for all bottoms. 20190401_223426.jpg 20190402_005045.jpg

    In order to raise the coffeemaker, I would need to modify this spice shelf. Figured I'd prime and paint it too. 20190409_192817.jpg 20190406_190711.jpg

    I didnt want to paint the kitchen walls so I went to lowes looking for ideas and came up with this stuff. Self sticking wall tiles. It's like a very thick sticker and it is as tough as nails. Easy to install and looks good too. Perfect! 20190405_203753.jpg

    A couple of measurements here, a few mitre cuts there....some black spray paint, touch of glue and a few Brad nails later....the spice shelf, re-located coffeemaker and wall tile meet up! 20190409_194446.jpg 20190409_194509.jpg 20190409_194625.jpg The spice shelf used to go all the way across, but I had to cut it and turn it back into wall, in order to create new space for coffeemaker.

    I'm pleased.

    Not near as an adventure as yours but we had some horrendous rain the last few days and I got a small leak in the roof so I tore into it today. What a pain in the ass!! 1B029F18-BFF3-471E-8D51-EDD981DF1200.jpeg 24046474-4355-427E-887B-B41524B75279.jpeg F9CE8FA7-7E62-4E35-A74C-0467974B14D2.jpeg 8DF6B460-A57C-4C0D-B5EE-13F15B4C3C14.jpeg B83417CE-1BF4-4C8B-AB84-344AC4110729.jpeg

    Yeah longer than I realized unfortunately. The understructire was in good shape thankfully. I wiped it all down the best I could and fogged it with mold killer (fingers crossed). I got a remnant of epdm from the local rv shop but it wound up not being enough so I cut the factory roof on three sides and I’ll re-glue it and cover the three side cuts with eternabond (self adhesive epdm 4” wide). The bitch of it was the little hole was tucked up under the body of the AC unit so I couldn’t ever find out where it was leaking from and I assumed it was only leaking a bit from the gasket when we would have bad rain storms. I was wrong.....

    So..it was leaking from the factory, or did the little hole happen during ownership?

    I’ve only owned it for 3 yrs and it’s an ‘09. About the only thing I can think of is someone has had the AC unit off at some point and knicked the EPDM. Cause there is no way it got damaged from a limb or otherwise based on where is was located which is why it has been allowed to “grow” to the problem it has...

    Got the running light wires all bundled up..ready to finish up the front end. ( Ella's bedroom) 20190404_210544.jpg
    So we stuffed as much of this pink insulation into the upper void as we could squeeze in. 20190407_110800.jpg
    Then it was just a matter of measuring, cutting, gluing and screwing. Then added a little trim and...sweet! 20190409_224741.jpg 20190409_224753.jpg
    20190409_224931.jpg

    Front section is done.

    With Ella's bedroom finished, it's time to build a ladder. This ladder needs to be movable. Figure I'll lay it up on top while traveling, then just pop it in place when needed. Should be simple enough.

    Started with a couple 2x4s, then notched at the top.

    Still had some carpet leftovers, so it was a no brainer. Let's make it match! 20190411_204842.jpg 20190411_204851.jpg

    Done! 20190413_234849.jpg
