You guys know as well as I do, when you start a project and once you get into it, it kind of takes a life of its own, and as long as there is no time restraint it grows exponentially. Once you get into it, its well since I am here this will look good, or oh I didn't know this needed redone.
Having said all this, I applaud both of you(Terry and Bap) with the exceptional work that you are doing. Along with your DW,s.
Frank

That backsplash looks amazing! This is definitely turning into a high end fw kind of the same thing I'm going for. I'm all for if you're going to do it, do it right the first time!

Terry - Looking good. Agree it has turned into a nice high end TH.

You know you're a CLACer when the smallest project turns into a major overhaul. "While I'm at it maybe I should...."

Sometimes I wish I wasn't wired this way. Case in point, one of the Italians was hit with an egg and I didn't see it for quite some time. What started as a paint fix became a ground up restoration. Then the other one looked shabby so it got a makeover too.

Good afternoon, Bap, I believe we would be in real trouble if they got together, it would be.......(just do that or can you do this? and why not?). Thanks guys, Jay, I know what you mean about maybe not being wired that way, life might be simpler . Well, rain hasn't shown yet they say its coming, so I've been working on the projects I staged for inside, getting ready to put the ceiling up, putting away wiring, positioning the lights so I can cut the holes where need be. put up the ceiling in the bathroom, that won't have the headliner material on it, that will get a water resistant finish. Also putting a closet ceiling in.

Check, Check and another Check, off the check off list that is. Won't be long Terry.
That no rain today messed me up, by the time we saw that it wasn't going to rain, it was too late to start the project, my tax lady was coming over to go over our taxes with us. Oh well, hopefully tomorrow will work.

Good Morning, Rain here yesterday afternoon and most of today, so its just harder (slower) to work. Frank, we just keep doing all these little things, There was a spot that in between the corner cabinet and the bedroom wall that would be a dead spot, (I hate dead spots) sooo there is enough room to build in a sliding pantry, about 40" by 8", never built one but they don't look too tough. Hope the rain don't mess you up today. Well continuing on. Have a great day.

Thanks Terry, It rained lightly last night, but stopped now so it should be ok, breeze died down too so I can open up the compartments and crawl in to get at the water pump that is either plugged up or went bad. My last 5er I had my son-in -law make me some wooden boxes that I put slides on and turned my pantry into sliding drawers so I could get to everything in the pantry. Made a huge difference on useability. 8x40 with sliding drawers will make a good pantry. Make your spacing different for your drawers, so that you have short things in 1 or 2 drawers and taller things in another, rather than waste all that space between drawers for the equally spaced ones.

Rebuild

Frank, thanks for the tip on the shelf spacing, I have to go this week and get the slides, I need the ones that come all the way out instead of like a drawer that don't come all the way out. The whole 8X40 is going to slide out. I have the walls for the bathroom done, now Eleanor has to paint, the separation will have a molding that runs the full length of the cabinets, because I will have open cabinets above the one's that are there now.

NP Terry, that's what we are here for, to help our fellow RVers. The extra space above the cabinets is a good idea, you always can use the storage space for something, you might want to put some hooks into the ceiling so you can attach a cargo net to keep the stuff up there, because if it can find a way down, it will, especially on our potholed northern roads. You are making great headway.

Frank, you read my mind on the cargo netting, those upper cabinets will be used for light bulky items, paper towels ect. that you never seem to have room for.

Rebuild

Finished up the bathroom walls today. Installed an electrical outlet that is hooked up to a 50' 10 gauge lead cord. This is accessed by the small electrical door on the outside, it will be used for anything that will not go thru the RV's electrical system, like an electric heater. I also finished a large pantry.
