First the floor. And just know that I won't show many pictures. You'll have to wait for the big reveal...whenever that is. You may recall back in August we laid a new sub-floor in prep for what would one day be the new floor. I've seen a few other trailers use wood floors, and I loved the look. So homey. So we went with laminate wood floor stickers. I will take a moment to remind you of what we started with:
|Wowza. No barefoot are touching that, let me tell you.|
Now I witnessed none of this flooring action. Nathan busted it out. It happened so fast I really wasn't even aware it was happening. I do know he sanded down the entire floor wherever the new flooring was to be laid.
|Prepped and ready to go.|
It looked great, stayed put, so he charged ahead with the rest. The following is the last picture you will see of the floor...for now.
Our appointment with the Washington State Patrol was fast approaching, which meant we had a 3-day pass to drive Journey around. (Because we have no title, VIN, or license plate...we had to do a lot of paperwork in order to even get her road legal.) Because we had a 3 day pass, we wanted to use that time to drive her around to make sure there's no major issues. I also scheduled us some family pictures with our favorite photographer Jessica Greenfield. She lives on gorgeous farmland out near Moses Lake, so it was a perfect opportunity for a little road trip and include Journey in the family photos. BUT Journey's door was still a hot mess. So not picturesque. We had to fix that, and quickly. We spent about 3-4 hours one evening last week rebuilding the door.
|Ready to be rebuilt!|
|All nails pulled out, ready to be disassembled.|
|The door frame was a little warped, so getting the door all back together and hung up was a little bit of a challenge, but it all worked out in the end.|
|My job was scrubbing this bad boy and installing the new rubber gasket. I even had to use silicone. Oooooo! Not too bad, if I do say so myself ;)|
|All assembled and ready to be rehung!|
|Ta-da! I haven't rubbed chalk all over it yet...that's still on the to-do list.|
