Wow!! A sticky no less!!! guess I must finish the old gal and make sure pictures are included too huh??? I have been working on the lady for sure. Right now in the kitchen and am about halfway thru the kitchen rebuild and it will be all done but the side stripes and a few places that got scratches somehow but the cactus may have done that. I do think I will try some camping out on the deserts here in this area as weekend trips to see the mining here in the area. another thing i am looking into is my hobby,or should i say hobbies?? Anyway I like model trains and model rocketry and model airplanes and all but i have all the stuff for the kitchen rebuild in that area and i have a free sidebox that i can use and I have seen others do this too! I can put a 3 foot by almost 30 inches layout in that sidebox. Even my awning covers that area so I have a place for a layout!! I don't have room for all the rockets and they are and have been in a storage shed for twelve years and now have no clue as to where or what to do with them all. I have room for a railroad but not the rockets...I am talking high power rockets as high or in the case of me one is taller than me!! I have smaller ones I might keep but the others...Never flown but completely put together....When i was getting my legs to work i would work on these and then with help I got to fly them and later as I got my legs to work better I was able to catch a few before they landed. great therapy back in the 90's!!! Fishing is something I have done since a child and have all that stuff in the pod for Deb and i. Once the coach is done, I will have so much more storage and room left over we can put things where they belong and we don't have to think about where we hid them. I am going to have to think about how to put the link in for the pictures and I am regrouping them anyway so you can't see all. Will work on getting that done too!! And tomorrow is another day! Dan

Don't know why... here are a few,



That is before and then next,



And the next,



and the finish,



another,



More later as i can get the doors painted and more on the rest too! I really like sponge painting!!! Makes that wall pop compared to what was there and before that!! This is the fourth time somebody has done a makeover on this baby. I will keep the paint left over so i can touch up the walls if needed!! Still can't figure out why you can't get to Picasa...

Ya know, personally, I would have done a crisp white on the cabinets themselves and then a combination of white and the green on the doors, but otherwise, smashing Definitely need to upgrade those outlets and their covers to a crisp white from the ugly almond

Tomorrow i will start with the stove..Trying to figure out how to remove the stove.I needd to break the front off the countertop so i can paint the fronts of the cabinets. I have the lower cabinet the one above the cab and the other one that I built about 7 years ago above the old dinette. I am going to eat so later, all smoke

Open the door of your oven and remove the top of the stove. You should either have screws in the top section that secure it, or ones down the sides of the front behind the oven door.

I will put my new unit i have and make the second shelf for the Micro Convection unit right where the oven was and I have a hole left over that I may turn into another drawer Have to wait and see.Right now I am halfway iinto another hobby of mine that if I had known I was gonna have the kind of problems I am I might not have started it yet...Hindsight....Needed some.

Personally, I prefer the ovens, but I'm also where there's no hookups alot of the time and like to save the generator's power for running A/C or microwave.

You can always add a microwave the way I did without sacrificing cabinet or counter space

Ignore the drinkies on the counter

Thumbs down

I got up and tried to get the painting done and I started up at the top up front cabinet and i had my arm up on the roof and I was getting ready to cut the top edge in and the ceiling went up about an inch!!! Turns out that when they tied the roof together they forgot the cabinet above the cab!!!
I got it tied back in but popped the screws that held the fronts to the roof front board. I am going to the hardware to get some steel brackets to tie them back together again. i am so sore from putting it together so i know i will be sore tomorrow! It may be a few days till i can get to it again! I will get the stuff and then see how I feel....

Well, I got all the junk to fix the cabinets Friday and will try Monday to finish that piece of the kitchen. As for anything else, I am getting a 10X10 workshop that should be here in the next week or so. I am going to finish building the storage shed around that trailer and use that for our junk! Dusty will be getting a panel around the outside so the wind cannot get under the home. I am not painting it so I guess the coach is pretty much done. I wish I could sale it and get out what I have in it but not going to happen but my workshop will give me somewhere to hang around and work on my hobbies and a radio and power and there you go!! I am planning to get another computer so i can use this one out in the shop. The good one will be in the house. I changed my email address and now I can't get the picasa3 to work!! They can take Google and shove it!! I am looking for another email and picture hosting site. This may mean that I am no longer a rv'er. If so i will leave..Don't care. Smoke
