Then it hit us. We JUSSSSST finished the easy bits! From here on out, things get complicated. As I've been mentioning, the next major step is to pull the shell off of Maude so we can replace the rotten sub floor. We've got at least one "minor" job to do before we can lift her up, though! We realized that once we've got the new sub floor down, we won't want any water getting in, so we've got to get her sealed up for the winter! This weekend, we ordered aluminum patching, rivets, a rivet gun for the holes where old vents used to be that we no longer need. We also ordered plexiglass for the missing/leaking windows as a temporary fix. We'll fix them properly once we find the parts! *crossingfingers*
Our next realization was that once we've got that floor pulled up, we've got to have all of the rest of the inner workings of the trailer figured out, because we'll lose access to the belly and the inner skin soon!
So, on Sunday, we spent about 4 hours researching heating, cooling, windows, electrical systems, plumbing, lighting, pretty much ALL of it! Nerdy Becca even made an outline of the steps that need to be completed and a rough order in which they need to be performed so that we could not go so overwhelmed by all of the details! One step at a time :)
So there ya go! Sorry(?) there weren't as many nasty progress pictures this week. LOTS of brainy-work happenin' around here!
As always, thanks for following along on the Adventures of Maude The Acu-Trailer!
