OK, so door is done enough for now. The interior framework has needed attention. Once it is painted and bolted into place again, I can start adding walls, lights, chases for plumbing and wiring etc.
So start by unbolting everything, then a little wire wheel, flap disc, and 3m scotchbrite pad action, then a little cleaning with a fresh painter rag and lacquer thinner.
I would love to powdercoat all the pieces but pretty much everything is cost prohibitive for me.
I've found that if you have a decently prepped surface this combination of paint works well for bare metal, the rustoleum acid etch primer and their "professional" spray paint. They are both high build products that dry fast.
Perfect for penny pinching impatient people like me.
The weather is crappy but we had a sunny break today and took advantage of it as much as possible. I got a large chunk of the framework painted but it seems never ending.
I still have a few large pieces bolted in that have to come out, and I haven't even gotten to the kitchen cabinet system yet.
Before I bolt everything back in, I'll be installing the finished interior wall covering in many places which should give the appearance of some actual progress.
Once all the framing I have now is bolted into place I'll get to work on the drawers and stuff for the kitchen. The pantry is a full height (78 inch) pull out system, and a bunch of drawers and stuff that I fabricated earlier. I'm looking forward to that part.
I'm guessing I'm still missing a few framework pieces, notably the crossover partitions from left to right, sliding door for the master bed in back, the shower stall framing, and the slider for the bathroom.
The shower will be interesting, I plan on using a 30x30 4 piece shower kit.
Any opinions on shower footprint size?
