The last couple of days have been some awesome benchmarks. It is beginning to feel cozy. As I am wrapping up what I can before my final trip to Detroit, I am anxious about completing plumbing and the propane hook up for my stove. But I can budgeted a couple days after returning to Asheville to wrap up unfinished stuff before taking off.
The bedroom area is done! Including hydraulic lifts for the bed frame, an outlet in the headboard, and shelving above the bed. In addition to the nice sized dresser, there is still plenty of room under the bed area for storage. My fresh water tank and diesel heater will be under there as well. And the bedroom privacy walls/shower and bathroom walls are secured.
Though it is still pretty cluttered, it is less chaotic since we installed the countertops! (Thanks Brendan!) I followed Alan's suggestion to get butcher block counter tops and just keep them natural (simply just oil).
The appliances have started to come in! So far just the fridge....next the oven. Also based on Alan's suggestion, I went with a larger sink (27"x18"x8" deep under the counter) so that I could use it for additional storage. I will post photos once I get the faucet and sink mounted (my first attempt at installing an under-the-counter sink).
