Well, as the year 2006 winds down, the interior of the Scamp
13 remod is almost done. Still to complete: set water tank and connect pump switch, set and connect New Olympian Wave 3 heater, final wiring connections for interior lighting
, and some moulding, cover the new benches with denim and then the wife will make new curtains. The carpet will probably go in tomorrow.
It was a complete gut, keeping the original elephant hide, gluing carpet to the ceiling and walls, following the old scamp
material pattern, fabricating all new cabinets, a new rear seating and bed arrangement, forward dinette, new counter top, new range, and lots more usable storage.
Used about two weeks time, 7 sheets (5-12/ inch and 2 1/4 inch) AC sanded shop Plywood, two gallons of flooring adhesive, 30 x6 feet of interior wall carpet, 120 LF 3/4 x3/4 fir strips for backing, a few hundred screws and about 100 feet of 1x2.
Did it all with a cordless 5 /12 inch saw, and drill, a table saw, about a quart and half of wood glue, a 3/4 gallon of polyurethane satin finish varnish.
All new interior wiring, and existing coach exterior running lighting
wriing was put into plastic smurf tube and cleaned up.
Total cost to date, about $500 plus what I'll spend for the cushions and fabric for that, I'll have maybe about a thousand into it to finish.
A new paint
job for the outside this spring, and we are ready.
There was a lot of head scratching, a few cold ones for thinking fluid and a five gallon bucket of sawdust when done.
We gained more seating, could seat now four or five maybe and the bed is deeper by five inches, which is huge.
Where did the five inches come from? rotated the sink 90 degrees, the new pantry is more efficient and has more usable space than the old closet.
Threw in a few pics of just about done...more when really complete.
Happy New Year.
