Always love to see a good refurbish!! Please start a thread and let us know on here what it is so we can see your handiwork!
Pete

So, here goes. This is such a daunting project, for me anyway, that I'll do my best to make heads and tails out of it for you to follow.

As it sat, on my neighbors farm...



Bees nest in the window...







Cleaned up pretty nice after power washing...



Bad seams.....







...to be continued...

Rear wood crossmember...



Cupboard (under fridge) floor, with linoleum removed...holes are from ants...



Once rear cross member was removed, it exposed an uncapped heating duct (below the floor)...





So, a s.s. end cap was installed. Not heating the great outdoors anymore...





...more to come...

Rear, top corners...





Ants...





Most of these pics were to help me "put things back" in the right place, down the road. So...I have a lot of pics of the bad areas, but there were times that I didn't take pics of some of the repaired areas, mostly to save time and keep moving on.

These top corners were some of those areas. I did cut out all the rotted wood, and replaced it, even on the roof. I may be able to get more pics of this, when I remove the rear plastic...

You can see a little bit here...



...more to come...
