The kitchen which we use a lot. The cabinets and paneling inside have been restained the original colour using a gelled stain and then refinished with a wiping varnish. The ensolite interior was completely repainted with flat white latex ceiling paint after reglueing the sags and filling the cracks with latex caulk.

The bathroom door, closet, fridge, and furnace. We completely forgot to take a picture of the bathroom but it is in original condition and we have not had to change anything there yet. We cannot imagine doing without our toilet and shower not to mention the fridge and furnace.

Seat cushion covers.

And now I proudly present the results of my wifes handiwork making cushion covers. Made from real nice heavy upholstery fabric (doityourselfupholstery.com) A synthetic fibered woven fabric of the type used in planes, trains, and buses backed by a tough super flexible vinyl to make the cushions moisture and mold resistant. Nylon zippers complete the openings. The only thing we left out from the original cushions is the piping around the edges. We do not miss it. Everything is sewn on a regular singer sewing machine with a heavy needle and bonded nylon thread. I think they are better than the originals in every way.

There they are in place. The foam was still in great shape with lots of dense support. Lucky us.

Thanks for the compliments folks. Considering how long it took I wondered sometimes if it was all going to be worth it. Any questions? Ask away.
