Demo done – Remodel begun!

Wow!  The remodel is almost done!! I say “almost” as I don’t know that we’ll ever truly be done.  I have a long list of *little* things still to accomplish but the big things are pretty much DONE!  We started by tearing out all the carpet, the couch, and the dinette to make it our own.  We painted, put down flooring, built a desk/counter space, put in a new couch, etc etc.  Here are some photos of all that we have done!  I will be uploading the newest ones soon with the completed look – including a post about our new location!! It is AWESOME!  🙂

Here we go:

I will be adding quite a few more photos in the next week.  We are pretty proud of the finished product!  And I’m really grateful I have the handiest husband ever!! 🙂

  1. Wow, looks terrific!! When looking at preowned rigs to possibly make my new home, the first thought is always: rip out carpet! Your floor looks great and making the desk and cabinets look ‘non’ rv, makes it look so homey and stylish.

    1. Thank you!! That was exactly what we were trying to accomplish! We know that remodeling an older RV can be risky on getting any return but since we will be living in it full time we wanted to make it “ours”. I think it works and it might not hurt the resell when it comes time for that. Not worried about that at the moment though. 🙂

      1. I hear you on the customize/redo vs resale, however I think on many older models, well done updates can’t lose! Enjoy your good work! 🙂

  2. Wow, it looks awesome! I especially love the tile backsplash in the kitchen and bathroom. We thought about something similar during our re-model but changed our minds in the end. Now that I see yours I almost wish we had done it. Enjoy your lovely new home 🙂

    1. Thanks, Amanda! We really enjoyed this project. The backsplash was a lot of fun but we had to find a way to make it light and flexible. The tiles we used are super thin glass sheets. We used a commercial adhesive product to put them up and the grout was a flexible caulking. So hopefully it won’t crack up!

  3. You’ve got some serious talent! I’m jealous. I want to RV with my children (single mom, elementary school aged girls) but it’s not looking like it’s in the cards for us. I’m so trying to make it work though – and when I see nice rigs like yours I just swoon!

    1. Monique, you are too kind!! And don’t give up your dream. You CAN make it happen! We are doing it in baby steps by moving into the RV on a local location until our daughter finishes college – all the while saving money and taking our vacations in our home! You just need to come up with a plan and go from there. It doesn’t have to happen tomorrow but it can happen if you want it too. Good luck!!!

  4. FABULOUS! AWESOME, magnificent re-do …. YOU all could start an RV re-do business 🙂 Great job and thanks for sharing with us. Cya round ….somewhere, someday. I hope 🙂

  5. I love the cat door. Would love to see pics of the outside entrance if you could post pics. Take care and happy trails.

    1. Thanks! The cat door goes directly into a small bin at the front of the rv. It is accessed directly from the outside. The bin holds all our extra pet stuff as well as the cat box! Works for us and keeps the cat box out of the main part of the RV! 🙂
