Rig Improvements

The previous owner of the Minnie used it as a mobile office. This means he painted over the big window by to top of the bed, got rid of the couch/pull-out bed and the dining table, added a small table that he sat at with a folding metal chair, and added power strips everywhere for his computers, etc.

Since we're living instead of working in the Minnie, we obviously have to change a few things. The carpet felt dirt even after vacuuming and the wallpaper just looks too much like an old RV and not a beach home. Since the floor and the walls are foundational issues, we knew we had to start with those. The process took several weekend, but here are some pictures to show the start of the RV remodel.
The boring before

Check out the wall color!

And the beautiful clean look of hardwood

We still have a long ways to go with new curtains, taking that ugly paint off the top front window, tiling the kitchen back splash, etc. etc. etc. It's hard work, but it feels good to do it ourselves. I've always rented and it's nice to own something and be able to customize it to our personal style.

Do you like it so far?
