Well, today I went out and unscrewed a total of about 6 screws and decided it was too dang cold to work out there. So I went to Lowes and Home Depot.
I got 5 2x2s and some of the plastic paneling
I'm going to use in the bathroom. As well as Liquid nails, and a tube of 100% silicone. The score however was enough vinyl flooring that is vinyl but presents as 6 or 8" wide by 36" long planks. They were originally $48 per box of 20 (40 sq feet) on clearance for $27 a box. By the time I was done with them I got it for $18 a box. $90 for flooring.
Hubby got an oscillating multi-tool and I ordered a Kreg Pocket Hole Jig for my birthday yesterday. Yes, real women love tools too.
What possessed me (us) to tackle this project? Well, because I'm pretty frugal. Frankly it's because I don't want to pay $12K - $250k for a rig that will likely have rot and problems anyway. I don't want the payments... Even if I put $2000 in this over time... I figure I'll come out ahead by not paying interest.
Time line? I hope to have it finished in time to go camping summer 2013.
We already have an air compressor and a finish nailer/stapler. So I'm covered there.
I've been considering using my paint sprayer to spray the new and old wood with Thompson's water seal while I have the walls off.
Hopefully tomorrow won't be so cold and I'll be more motivated to do more than 6 screws. lol Or maybe I should just work on some leather instead.
