They are officially sitting on the floor of my garage in pieces. I sure hope I can put them back together again.
But, in the midst of my ardor for flat-head screws that refused too come out, and playing hide and go seek with a few dozen more screws, I managed to splash myself with what can only be described as
the worst thing I've smelled......EVER!
I had failed to remember that the sink trap was full of nasty, foul smelling, chunky viscus liquid.
Well, if I had to actually describe the Eau de Toilette, I would say it had a very heavy rotten beer on the front end, followed by a 1 - 2 punch of raccoon pee, and that smell that hits you when you walk into the public restroom at the downtown subway station. And finally, it finished with the slight burning sensation as it came into contact with my skin for a few seconds before I could wildly flail about brushing it off as if it were caustic battery acid.
But alas.... it was too late. I scrubbed my hands, arms and face down 3 times and yet, the smell remains. I'm fairly sure I would of rather played "Pin the tail on the Skunk" than get another drop of that stuff within 10 feet of me. Actually, I'm 100% sure I would rather do that!
Let me get back on track with the work I've done.
Sink Cabinets are out, so now I just have one more piece to take out, then on to the next step.
Not quite sure what the, "next step" is, but I think the rest of the paneling will be removed next.
Followed by the floor. There are a few really spongy spots, and if I'm going to do this much work, it seems silly not to do the sub floor.
Here it is without the sink cabinets...
I tried to take out the wall panel behind the sink cabinet, but its nailed behind the wheel well.
Still formulating my master plan on getting that panel out...
ALSO, Brandi and I checked out this counter top place. I thought it could be a cool option because its much lighter weight than granite or quartz, and looks REALLY cool. But not "Cool" like, spend more that I spent on the entire Shasta trailer, "Cool".
We also looked into flooring. I think that we want a hardwood floor, but I seems that if my shasta is super man, then water is its Kryptonite. And the natural wood floors could be easily damaged by it. So we decided to go with a vinyl type product. Its impervious to water and quite durable if installed properly. Also, its cheap.
(Personally, my favorite feature.)
Here are some that we selected. We welcome any comments!
