You know those times when everything seems to be happening all at once? The last three weeks of my time at the farm was exactly like that. Between running the sprayer (herbicide application), producing a dance recital DVD for a local dance studio and renovating the Adventure-Boler I was full throttle for about three weeks straight. I'm happy to say though, everything got done, for now.
When we left off I had just finished the basic design for the sleeping platform and put new rims and tires on the trailer. Needless to say, we've advanced by leaps and bounds since then. Those of you that follow along with our adventures on Instagram will have seen that we've already departed on our summer work-hiatus and that the Adventure-Boler has been deemed road worthy.
After finishing the initial bed platform design it was time to get our paint on. Lesson learned: don't use exterior oil-based paint on the interior of your trailer, you'll be sniffing that smell for weeks to come. Interior painting went quick, thank heavens, I hate painting.
Next on the list was flooring. 19 sqft of laminate oughta do it! I was a little apprehensive about the flooring, turns out its really easy. One thing I've noticed through building this project is my ability to make accurate measurements has significantly improved, to the point where I'll be a 1/16 out and the floor won't go back in after you paint the fiberglass underneath.
When flooring was down I turned my attention to the cupboard and drawer faces. Alison and I butted heads a little on color choice, so you'll notice a compromise between some faces painted grey and others stained wood...I prefer the stained wood.
In quick succession, I also finished the hitch, put stabilizer jacks on the rear bumper and installed a new door handle.
Next on the list, exterior paint! Oh joy...
From this point it was only a matter of doing a few little fixes and we were on the road. Stage one is complete, stage two will consist of more interior painting, new axle, new windows, some interior upgrades and solar. Now for some fun travel photos, yay! Also, our trailers name is Casper, like the friendly ghost.
