Holy mashed potatoes, Batman!
The trailer is coming back together and starting to look usable again. Well, at least from the inside it is. 🙂
Just hanging out with my power tools getting some work done.
The funny thing is…before I started this process, I had limited knowledge and use of power tools, short of the cordless drill. I’ll admit, I was a little intimidated at first. Though shortly after, I got more comfortable, and now my power tool resume includes the cordless drill, two different saws, and the nail gun. YAY.
The boys supervised while the dinette benches were put back in.
“Hey, Tanner, why don’t you offer up some of that water? ” 🙂
The benches are finally back into the trailer. Now a place to sit.
Forgot to mention, the handy husband got the floors finished, and look pretty nice, if I do say so myself. We did the click together lament flooring, which is durable and pretty, but not AS easy to install when your trailer is not perfectly straight front to back and side to side. Pretty sure, linoleum would have been easier.
Now the walls and floors are all in, I got back to work on the trim and paint. Exciting stuff, I know.
Then one day while the handy husband was at work, I decided I was going to tackle putting in the couch/bed…..myself.
The frame wasn’t so bad, but the board that goes on top of the frame to hold the mattress up has to go in a certain way…. After about, taking the board in and out of the trailer three or four times (exhausting, by the way), I set it correctly. VICTORY!
After all that work getting the mattress, blanket, and pillows in the trailer, I took a nap. 😉
Later, I took a break to do some arts and crafts inside. I absolutely LOVE Ansel Adams and one of my most favorite photographs of his, is a picture of Mt Rainier.
There aren’t too many pictures taken by him of Mt Rainier Nt’l Park and when we are out on the road, itll remind me of home.
The picture I am using above is from last years calendar and I would have framed as is, but the white border around it was uneven and would have look weird framed that way. So, I simply cut out some white poster board the same size as the frame and cut out the picture itself without the white border. Next, I centered the cut photograph on the poster board, glued it down and framed it. Ready to go!
