Personalizing Princess' Loft

Well, painting Miss princess' loft is complete, and today, she and my wife added in the personalization!

 
Princess was very excited to finally be able to add her stickers. She's been asking for two days, and very unrelenting in it as well.

Floors and Trim Complete. More Painting.

We finally got the flooring completed, and bought some metal guards for the edges near the steps and front of the flooring where it was open and at risk of coming apart if we didn't add it in.


One more thing checked off the list!

Trim has been installed!

It's taken some time, but children are a priority, and even more-so when they are sick. Yesterday, my wife stained our trim after I was able to get it all cut, and today I installed it.

Floor is installed, working on trim

It's been a tough go trying to get everything ready in the RV with a teething infant, and a sick toddler. We're ever so slowly making headway, and the results look amazing indeed!

T-minus 32 Days to launch!

Today, we gave notice to our very cool landlord that we will be vacating for May 1st, 2016.

It's real. It's scary and exciting at the same time.

We're also returning our Alberta bought SUV to save an additional $450/mth on top of the $1300/mth in rent, and $120 in internet and cable. For those counting, we're cutting costs by $1870/mth right off the bat.

The extras come in now as well. I have one more thing to fix in the engine of the RV which is minor before I register and insure it here in BC, where it was last actually registered and insured. Who knows how many years that has been.

Floor Installation Begins!

Finally! Today, I was able to head out and buy a new blade for my saw, and a new square (mine is sitting in Alberta). After asking a few questions on a totally cool Facebook page called RV Remodeling, Decorating, and Renovations, I figured out what I should do about the flooring.

My biggest concern was the gap to leave for expansion, and if it would be an issue with an RV, and the movement. I need to leave 3/8ths of an inch for expansion all the way around, and that looks like a lot. I am concerned about it shifting while moving around. A guy who is on the page commented, and is the owner of a flooring store. He suggested making sure that I keep that gap, and avoiding gluing or stapling it down as it will buckle when it tries to expand/contract.
