Well I took out ten windows the other day- SO easy once I got all the caulk that I put on there off. Haha, pretty funny to work against myself like that. There was one window that I hadn't caulked and it literally came out in 1minute after the 3 screws were removed. NO WONDER THEY ALL LEAK!!!
Well, getting very excited about putting metal over the windows and starting to move forward. I am just looking at windows on Ebay- mostly RV windows. I know some use house windows, but I don't think I have enough information to make me feel good about those long term.
We have decided to remove the camper shell above the kitchen and build something out of metal that will not leak. That thing has been a problem since the first rain. LEAKY MADDNESS!!
I am feeling excited and empowered around these new choices. Once I stopped feeling sorry for myself and made some decisions I have been quite happy. It is quite funny how I was trying to cut corners and now that I have decided to just do it full on and take more time to make it right, I feel SO much better. The time frame is thrown out the window...pun intended.
16 more windows to remove. Then cover it all over with 18 gauge metal that my dad is going to shear for us. Self drilling screws and lots of caulk should do the trick. Or perhaps rivets... not sure. I just ordered the metal today. Monday will be shearing day, then hopefully next week we will get the back side covered and be able to take off the front windows to cover them over, it all depends on the weather. I can only back the back half of the bus into a workshop because of the camper shell.
Well, here goes! onward and upward Skoolie friends!
