Just a few more days until deadline day. No pictures tonight cause it got dark before I could take them. Two windows are in, the screening is up for the front windows. We picked up more wood for trimming and have to paint it tomorrow. Sometime in the morning a guy is coming to look at the caravan and see if he can deliver it or not. Also to let the Caravan Lady decide if she trusts this person to deliver the caravan.
Are over. We had somebody come in and do the little bit of welding we needed to get done.
The door frame has finally been squared and is ready for us to build the door. There’s been some minor design changes on the door but I am very happy with what we have decided to do. I love the idea of a window in my door. One day it will even have some custom stained glass in it! (The Caravan Lady is terribly talented.)
What have I been up to myself? Well I’ve been painting some more.
The man who did the welding says he has an old trailer he’ll be scrapping soon and we should come over this afternoon to take windows, mattresses or whatever we want out of it before he does. Which is awesome. It doesn’t look like much has been done so far today, but all these little things add up. But for now, it is lunch time for hungry workers.
Not even noon and so much work has been done.
The under roof is completely up, a second layer of purple is on the desk and the shelf areas in my bunk.
Lots has been done since I last showed you the caravan. The curves for the roof are done, the beams attached and the first bit of under roof is in. Lots of work on the interior as well.
Dad came up this morning and stayed til after lunch. So we had a great time building. He helped with getting the desk figured out and most importantly, with going back to the scrap yard to get more windows to put in. The ones I showed earlier didn’t want to work right.
So off we all went (me, dad and the Caravan Lady) to the salvage yard with our tools.
Yup, we pried them right out of an old trailer. They were hard to get out but we managed. Right next to the trailer was this great sight.
I see many trips to play and find neat things in our future.
Where to begin with yesterday’s building?
We went on another window adventure today! Off to the Markdale Salvage. So much stuff there I want. We parked the car in a kinda sketchy driveway and were directed to the aluminum pile.
“Down the road there, take the first left, keep going”
It was a car graveyard….amongst other piles of junk scrap metals. We managed to find two windows that might work for what I want. If we can get them to open. We’ll head back on Monday morning to talk to the owner as well cause there were a bunch of old campers back there that have nicer windows and if we can take them out it’d be even better to have matches.
