Re: skoolie days

So our latest updates are that the floor is ready for carpet & flooring. The walls are ready for plywood & wallpaper. We have the toilet and black water tank as well as the shower pan.
It's been alot of work to get to this point. When you have to work in layers it seems to take so much longer before you see results.

Re: skoolie days

Pilot & co-pilot seats installed.(Pilot seat will be replaced) Co-pilot seat slides forwards over the stairs so it is almost beside pilot seat. It also turns to face the "livingroom"
