Well today I couldn't stand it any longer - I pulled up all the old flooring, carpet etc and ready to put a new surface down.

I am in the middle of redoing the back room into an office and jackknife sofa.  There was a queen size bed in there but it left no room for anything else.  And to reach the overhead cabinets, you had to kneel on the bed....  Nope, I can do with a full size bed and stand up in the room, plus have enough space for a real desk for my stuff.

Pulling up the carpet has also led me to decide on using an epoxy floor covering that can be painted on which will look like terrazo tile flooring when finished. I'm counting on it being easy to clean, durable for high traffic (there's only one way/path to use to walk through the coach), and offer some structural integrity to the old wood floor.  The place that sells it assures me that the bouncing and flexing will not be an issue.

We'll see how all this comes together...

I'll probably start the roof as soon as the material gets here (probably in two weeks).  I went to an RV Recycler (Junk Yard) today, and got a load of stuff for the old girl REAL REASONABLY.

I went there for a jack knife sofa for the stern - and ended up with 2 nice tinted visors for driving, wood trimmed flourescent fixtures, pop-up chopping block, better than mine roof storage pod, 2 good speakers, replacement AC switch panel for the dash, two driving/fog lights with switch, extra dash switches, 1988 Chevy/GM wiring service book, two airplane style reading lights, wooden paper towel rack, temp barometer, humidity gauge display - not brass but real wood mounting plate (supposed brass instruments I bought for the boat turned to poop as they aged  - new ones aren't like they used to be), etc.   Stuff I didn't even know I wanted/needed.... :)
