yeah - I am getting pretty close to being done with demolition - FINALLY! Tonight I removed the walls panels on the right side except one. I am really looking forward to doing the roof raising and skinning the sides.
I need to find some windows - I thought I had at least a few free ones lined up but that fell through.
It's easy to get impatient when I only get to work on it 1-2 hours at a time and a few nights a week, but it has been good therapy for frustration from my day job!
Sunday, my brother-in-law and I went to Lee's RV City
. I bought some wheel chocks and we spent some time looking through RVs they had on display. They had a really awesome 2008 Newmar Essex
. It costs $560k and has plenty of really cool features. But as I looked at it, I was thinking that if I had $560k to spend on a motorhome, I'd buy a shell and build it because every commercial one I have looked at is gaudy to the point of being tacky. And the woodwork was only mediocre too. So while it was fun to look - it reaffirmed for me that I am doing what I should be doing for now. Maybe later I'll build a coach, but a skoolie is perfectly suited for now!
