Well, we are experimenting with sort-of full time in the RV. Gary had a truck explode outside the workshop, which damaged the workshop and ruined a bunch of equipment. Unfortunately the workshop connects to the house so it now smells of smoke and being pregnant, I am unable to stand the smell even though it is so little that the specialist said there is no danger at all.
Hence, even without it being all the way renovated, I am out in the RV. Luckily, out in the country, there is nothing to prevent us using the RV at this time.
First, my computer moved with me, so I am treating the desk space here as my office. We did a quick bed install and everyone has at least a mattress for a bed.
Without any hookups besides the electric, we are traipsing into the house for the restroom, and the kitchen has not been installed in here, so the cooking is still in the house. So it is sort of full time but not really. I am working in here, and we all sleep in here. As I wash blankets and such they are added to the RV. I note that the lack of a wardrobe or other place to store clothing is a serious issue.
I want a smaller kitchen than does hubby. I think we need storage worse than we need a bigger kitchen.
I also am wondering where my fermentation crock for sauerkraut is going to go. Clearly, new batches will need to ferment while parked or the water seal will slosh away, but once repacked and in the refrigerator, the rest of the ferment can travel easily. It hits me the desk here has a file drawer. If I pad that, my smaller crock could fit.
But the best part is I am in the RV and evaluating it as a place to live, BEFORE the majority of the changes have been made.
1. no sensible storage for clothing.
2. need the kitchen installed, and smaller than hubby thinks
3. hubby wants the bed lower, I want it up higher for under bed storage.
4. no place for my musical instrument
5. each kid needs a cubby for toys
6. i miss having the bathroom up and running IN the RV--hubby says he is looking into hook-ups.
7. not sure where hubby is going to put his desk area.
There is quite a lot to consider. However, the air conditioners are doing their job nicely. I am able to work in place. And this allows us to take our time a bit more about the remediations on the fire.
Anyway, I am FINALLY using the RV at least a little bit!
