Thanks for all the feed back. I am posting pics to the google link as I progress. I will say this has turned out to be a vendetta against the RV at this point. I do believe I will have a nice RV one day and the cost will be nominal at best. All my investment is in Labor but its fun. The outcome should be a very cabin feel inside with a functional exterior. I am still trying to figure everything out and most of it is as I go. If anybody has any hints for me please respond as I don't want any big surprises at the end and then realize I could have avoided it earlier.
Happy RVing my friends!

From what I could see yesterday and on previous occasions, you seem to have your"rebuild" well under control. For whatever reason I can't access the photos in your link tonight. Perhaps it's just me.

Hi Mich, I tried the link https://goo.gl/photos/HAB2aPbo21GYbGNr8 this morning and seems to work for me. I had to click on a "leaving the site" button. Try it again and if it doesn't work for you I will make a new one. Thanks for watching. I will keep posting new pics as I go as this is the album I am making for my memories.

I still can't see the pics . Perhaps its just something with my laptop. With over 4,000 views on this thread, I would imagine if others were unable to view pics in the link, they would say so ?
I just see a pic with your name, (I'd guess) and the title? RV, with dates from June something or other til Sept. 22

Happy RVing my friends!
Being in the air craft industry before the RV industry, I am always mindful of weight. People complain about how crappy a motorhome is built. It is thin to keep the weight down. Always think about weight when building anything on the motorhome. I had a friend who refiberglassed his whole motorhome. He had a couple of delamanated places on his motorhome. He decided to use fiberglass cloth and plywood panels and make his motorhome like a boat. It was a beauty. He could not use it because it came out overweight, empty. HE wound up using it as a cabin at the lake. Moral of the story. Keep weight in mind on every thing you do.

GA Traveler, I have been keeping weight in mind throughout this process. All the framing except the rear wall is 1 x 1.5 custom cut framing and I used the existing aluminum wall rack. I reduced the front cab by 2 feet and will not be stuffing the inside with things I don't want like a dinette. The siding and walls are one and the same 3/8 osb t111. I am using light wieght insulation panels for the walls and will be using the pink stuff in the roof framework. The roof deck is 1/2 3 ply. The floor is made the same as it was when I took it apart. I would love to make this bigger and badder but the weight is a huge concern. Thanks for the heads up. If you have any ideas that can reduce the weight even more let me know but I think I have this under control....I hope lol.

Guys I am sorry some of you are having issues with the google link but it does work so something must be wrong on your end. Maybe you computer thinks its a bad site. Hard to say.

I just discovered that I can see the pics on my phone, but still not on my laptop.
They both open to the same page, but the pics don't show on the laptop, but they had in the past.

I can see the pic's just fine on my laptop and my android phone! Looks like you beat the weather and got it closed in and water tight! Now you can do the inside as time permits! Looking good! Rail!

The link is now working again on my laptop, so I see the pics.
For some reason there was no scroll bar on the right, to see the pics yesterday ??
Looking good. Are you going to install vinyl flooring ?

Wow..I just looked at the pictures and came to the realization that my problems are almost nothing in comparison. It's as if you have to replace your own heart and spinal cord with a dull putty knife and I have to trim my toenails with a dedicated toenail trimmer.
For me it's the cabinets made with cheapo particle board and the screw holes are all stripped out so it's really just a matter of new cabinets. To me it's not a big deal, but to the Mrs I might as well be trying to build a nuclear powered aircraft carrier with used q-tips.. She thinks this dinky project will cost millions..
I made new doors before I realized that the holes are all stripped so it's the case of one repair leading to another to another to another and on and on..
I showed her your pictures so now she's completely convinced that I'll have the whole RV stripped down to the bare bones too..
Hint: I'm not, but I'd like to.
