The good news is WE HAVE BENCHES!!! Yayyyy!!! And the potty closet is almost finished!!! The back interior panel has been replaced, and the hubster built a new nightstand/bookshelf and cover for the storage tunnel!!! Yayyyy!!!!
|A better view of the bench frame construction. The lift-up lid will cover the open portion and be made of 5/8" plywood. I think!|
The plan for today is to dry-fit the benches, then put down the lauan subfloor, and put down the new tiles. I had gone around and around about which tiles to use - inexpensive vinyl or use VCT. I love the look and feel of the VCT tiles, and they aren't difficult to install, really. The deciding factor was the weight, though. We tow with a 6 cylinder, max towing capacity of 3500 lbs (a lot less once we factor in the kids and our gear). We want to keep the weight down in this trailer, so that we are well within those maximums. The difference in weight between VCT and vinyl was somewhere between 35 and 50 lbs. So, we chose the vinyl. It will also be easier to replace just one square if it becomes damaged.
Well, it should be warmed up enough outside to get back to work. I'll be dreaming of beaches and margaritas tonight, that's for sure!!
