rebuild

Good afternoon, Hi Lynne, Thanks for the info, and you are correct on needing a coffee pot, thats VERY important. HH, yup Eleanor does like her coffee too. I did get some work in this AM, (and on the outside too ) but the sun was shining on the side I was working on, so not so bad. I installed the hood vent door and the porch light both had to be in before I could put up the inside paneling. 1st pic is of the tool that I use to cut the hole and what it looks like as I cut, the tool is a Plunge cut tool and it has proved invaluable in the construction.

Hi Gordon, I hope to get the windows in this weekend, the weather is supposed to be ok for the next week so we will see, but thats the plan, still working on the upper kitchen cabinet area, should be done in a couple of days.

Terry,
We use a Kureig, and just set it on the floor by the dining room table, have about 1500 miles this way with no problems. The table is on the street side towards the front of the lower level, so it is forward of the axles. Before the Kureig, I just used a regular 10 cup and just put it back in the box and in the cupboard when traveling. It would sit on the counter between the stove and the sink when we were sitting. Now I have a counter(computer table) that is underneath the entertainment center in front of the dining room table, so it is out of the way.
Frank


P.S. things look great. Gordon, glad to see that you and Janet are finally in the warm weather.

Hi Harley,

I've followed this thread and the amazing stuff you do, most impressive.

I bought a Keurig and one word of caution - if you get one with a clock and you have a modified sine wave inverter the clock will go haywire. It really needs pure sine wave output.

Hi Carl, Welcome Aboard! Thanks for the info . Most of the time I like to go "bare bones" with stuff like that, but sometimes if a good deal comes along........ now I know, what not to do. Thanks!!

Good morning Terry,
Hope it warms up enough for you to get something done, you have been doing a great job with staying after it especially considering how bad the weather has been.
Frank

Hi Terry;
Janet has a couple Keurigs, one for the RV and one for the house. She uses it mainly for the specialty coffees or once in a while for a single cup.

Personally I prefer using the bean grinder and the 10 cup drip. I like the coffee better when I make it. I buy arabica and expresso and blend them half and half. Janet bought me a fillable basket for the Keurig that works well. I find it quite fiddly to use so if I only want a cup I still make it using the drip. I never make one cup as Janet will usually have a cup when I make coffee.

The under mount (space saver) machines have been around for a while. I like them and think they are really elegant. From the pictures posted they seem to have evolved into some very nice units. I really like the thermos type carafes as they keep the coffee warm for a long time. I do not like coffee that is burnt from sitting in the I dont mind coffee warmed up in the microwave but Janet does not.

Recently I started using a couple Contigo vacuum drink mugs to store the extra coffee. Two cups and two contigos = a 10 cup brew. Drink the cups first thing in the morning and then drag the contigo around for the rest of the morning. It will stay warm until lunch time. Janet is a bit slower in drinking hers and I have poached some from her cup once in a while. It is still warm in the mid afternoon.

I also like to use a French press occasionally for a change of pace.

We just have the cheap drip from Lowes. I think the last one was under 20. Use it until it dies and then get another. We used to get the $100 ones but they did not last any longer than the cheap ones, sometimes not as long.

Janet stores all of the "stuff" when we travel and all is well.

Looking forward to the next photos. You are getting to the point where everything you do makes a big difference visually.

Hello all, just in for lunch, and trying to catch up on all my computer stuff, Frank, I DISLIKE the cold, but I can work in it if I have to, I just take more breaks than I used to, years ago I would build rebuild trucks and heavy trailers turn a salamander on and go to town on it. My father was a logger and had a fire going on the skidway all winter to get warm by, never went inside all day, later yrs my grandfather would keep the fire going. Tough men back then. Gordon, thanks for the coffee equipment info, it will come in handywhen I get to that point, I really like everyones view on differant subjects. I had an interesting thing in the TH today, I hooked up my fancy new porch light, this thing has all kinds of safetys ect. when I did the start up test it "told" me I had low voltage, now I have been running my electrical center on a temp hookup so that I can test as I go, the 12v converter has been working keeping the single motorcycle battery that I use for testing charged, so I checked the voltage on the line going to my porch light and it was 10.3 volts, checked the battery 13.9 volts, what I discovered was a drop in voltage across the fuse panel, from dirty contacts several fuses were ok, then half were not, cleaned up the contacts and viola !! good voltages across the board.

rebuild

Good Evening, I did get the upper kitchen cabinet up today, still have some wiring to do, all the monitor wiring, water pump switch ect. run thru this, so I have a days job sorting out all that. I also installed the switch panel (four switches) that is right by the door, it runs the outside light, and all the coach lights. once the ceiling is up there will be more cabinets built on top of the one that I put up today. They will be open face with cargo net fronts, to store light items.

IMO the kitchen cupboards will be awesome. They are looking good right now but with the extra on top it will be great.

I have to say it. It is looking professional.
