Dear Danielle, and talented husband,
I've been enjoying your Wide Open Space story and photos. Good Job!
Of course I can understand your problems and enjoy, with you, the solutions you had for them, as I (and my helpers) are restoring a 1990 Casita
1990 was bought in Phoenix, Feb 14, 2009. It was in very poor shape, but when you fall
"in love" you overlook alot.
One day, soon I hope, my Casita
will arrive at my doorstep all tight and light
and "new to me." I want to post photos, but will have to contact someone who is more experienced with computer pathways than I am.
The goal in renovation was light
,tight,bright and weathertight. My tow vehicle is a Subaru Outback Wagon, 4 cylinder. Fortunately, my friends and former neighbors have a business that rebuilds interiors of air planes. They are using similar techniques in redoing the interior; wall panels, cabinet doors and inside doors will be made out of a material called "alumalite." All plywood sub floors were replaced and finished with vinyl that looks like tile. Insulation is a sandwich of reflectix, glued to interior walls.
was done first. No reason, except poor planning. I was anxious to pull something that looked good.
I know how much you must enjoy keeping warm and dry in your "Dixie."
At 70+, tent camping is in my past, and the summer of 2011 will see me enjoying my new rig.
Thank you for sharing your re-doing project. Mona Simpson
