I'm nearing the completion of the first phase and will be moving in by the end of the month.
This is the same space now. The rose velour and turquoise dinette set that turned into a really uncomfortable bed is gone. In fact it wasn't even comfortable to sit at. All taken out and replaced by a small built-in computer desk and the windows are covered by grass cloth panels that slide along an aluminum track and give soft, filtered light in the room. For darkness and night time privacy, there is a room darkening roller blind that can be drawn behind the window panels. I'm also still shopping for proper furniture for the space.
There were some big projects that got done. The skylight over the shower got replaced, as did the water pump for the house plumbing, the refrigerator with a 4.4 cu.ft one that's so quiet I thought it wasn't working. I also rebuilt and extended the house electrical system with three new batteries, a 1500 watt pure sine wave inverter and an automatic transfer switch to run 120 vac to all the outlets when there is no shore power connected.
The weather slowed things down a bit, but that was good. I kept finding small leaks, a couple in really odd places that took some thought to figure out. Better to go through that when it's empty rather than after it's full of stuff. The other thing that slowed me down was a new prescription. It took a few weeks for me to realize that the fatigue and leg stiffness that was creeping up on me was related to some medicine I was taking.
Here is the bedroom half:
I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. I could have used a couple of feet more in length, as it's a little tight overall. The original floor plan had twin beds. Unfortunately there's not enough room to put a bed in the center without turning it sideways. Also, there is the fresh water tank on one side and the water heater on the other. I built a platform to enclose both and it gives me storage space in the center third and some additional storage, accessible from outside and a safe on the driver's side third.
At the foot of the bed is a custom built table, solid mahogany and maple with a birdseye maple center panel. I'm putting a 32" LCD television there. The window coverings I'm not completely happy with, but they were cheap at $6 a panel ($36 total) and a perfect color match, so they'll stay for now. Side table and lamp by the bed. The far side has about a 6" wide ledge along it with an AC outlet. There's a sink in the area, with a medicine cabinet (on which I managed to crack the mirror).
The laminate flooring arrived today, so that can start going in. Then I can clean up the kitchen area and take a photo of that. It'll get a new countertop later on and probably needs a new microwave, as I suspect a 30-year-old one isn't going to work very well.
My goal was to have it not feel like you're in an RV and I think I managed to do that. At any rate it's definitely a lot better than when I got it:
