I did a test run fitting the stove in a couple nights ago, and it fits level. No more sticking out from the bottom and it's a good tight fit that has no gaps around the edges. YEY! I did a little corner cutting today so it sits back more flush with the counter in the front like it's supposed to. Excuse the little pieces of wood on the wall there, they were just set there out of the way for a minute.
I took it back out so I could finish up the clean up under the counter. It's pretty much done in there, the wallpaper is up and some trim added. It's not a perfect job by any means, but it's 100 times better than the mess it was in before.The wires are organized as best as they could be. I will just have to live with those wires going across to the converter, etc.
I have a wall up! The wall next to the stove is up, behind that plywood is a sheet of luan that fits into the space of the frame to give some support to the bathroom wall for hanging the shower head, etc. On the Luan, I wrote a message in thick black marker. If someone ever tears the outside wall off they will read: "Diggity Dodge.... reconditioned with Blood, Sweat, and Swears. 2017" and then my initials. ;-)
Then I dove into refacing the counter with a peel and stick on surface that my Mother decided for me, between the two choices I gave her to look at. I was completely back and forth, so I let her decide. First attempt is a greenish marble effect. This stuff is not easy to work with, despite being peel and stick. even the tiniest little crumb of dirt will cause a bubble. LOL Mom thought the color would brighten up the darkness of the cabinets and framework, and the upholstery materials has a greenish/teal theme. I have a plan on using the rest of it on miscellaneous things to dress stuff up a bit. Also, really thinking on a back splash using a 1x2 covered with the paper after the new wall is in place. What ya'll think?
A very welcomed visitor was at the door to greet me when I stepped into the RV this morning. I love seeing these critter eaters around. They are so unusual. It's a walking stick:
Let's get closer. He seems to be eyeing me as he says "G' Morning!"
I love the dark shadow in the blue there:
All in all, I got accomplished a lot today. I did some work on sealing up the back window, and a a few other things on the outside as I went along.
Time to call it a day and get some rest. Well deserved, I think. :)
