Making progress

So here are a few more pictures....
We found another soggy spot under the fridge which needed to be cut out and replaced. And the walls were not much better most support strips for the vent outlets needed to be redone. The roof also needed new supports and we realized the vent lid was broken so we are replacing that too.
It's turning into a much bigger project than we thought but so far things are going well. We have all the behind the scenes supports replaced and the floor is solid again. We also decided to but down a better finished floor which is a waterproof vinyl product with its own rubber cushion backing.
Ciao for now
🙂🙂🙂🙂

It's a big job, but on the other hand you will not have to ask questions knew the interior structure, with great pride of accomplishment.

This is what makes these endearing eggs, we can repair or change within year after year ...

Hard at work

We have been busy working at our Bigfoot and have a few more things done. All the supports for vents and other outlets are new and we added an auxiliary shower and on demand hot water heater. It was quite nerve racking to cut the holes in the side of our baby but we didn't make any mistakes which was a real bonus. 😀
