Looks awsome. I have been wondering if it would be worth it. After the pics i think this is my next winter project.

Nice project! I would run the numbers on the 1500w Inverter again....I think you are a bit small for a keurig or a microwave....but I'm just guessing.

I dug up the specs on even the smallest Keurig...1425 watts. http://www.keurig.com/brewers/mini-p...brewing-system

Gotta admit....you're adventuresome! You're doing a lifetime of projects all at once. Nice job!

I thought I was going large by doing front and rear tv's replcements and an inverter.

Looking good, I'm hoping you don't take on to much, summers coming and you need a break. Remember to allow time for relaxing.

Thanks for all the positive comments! had a long day at work...(18 hours!)...overtime helps pay for the projects though !....so no work by me today..the wife got the rest of the furniture steam cleaned for the second time so that is ready to go...the carpet guy got the install done and from what I hear it looks good (didn't go out and check when I got home at 0100...)...hopefully will be able to get back at it tomorrow...Thanks for the info on the inverter and the suggestion on the age of the tires...I absolutely love this site...great people and great info...

Funfor4, I figured 130 square feet...ended up having one full box left over...will return that this week to lumber liquidaters (20% restocking fee...new policy?)...we got the 12mm which is pretty thick and used a really cool cork underlayment...about $360.00 otd...not including trim which I got WAY cheaper at Home Depot and that does not figure in the bathroom and footwell which will be tiled...

Got everything reassembled and back together, then took the family over to the grandparents farm for the weekend.

While we were there my brother-in-law, son and I serviced her...changed the oil (Mobile 1), drained the transmission (dropped the pan-inspected it and changed the filter), changed the rear end fluid, greased the entire chassis, and installed the new Bilstein HD shocks (they definetly imroved the ride!)

So...getting there!

Next we will start on the new electronics, TV's, Stereo...etc. After that will start working on the exterior cosmetics....

So...I think it has turned out nice so far...??
