Weekend of July 8th

Hot 92 in the shade.  Here I have glued the first section of .040 gauge aluminum skin to the front profile. Looking back on this job it looks pretty darn sloppy.  You do not want to remove the plastic skin from the aluminum until your trailer construction is complete otherwise glue, paint, dirt, caulk, all find their way to the nice clean polar white aluminum.

I installed a water purifier which came with this nice facet installed in the countertop.

Here is the material I will use for the shower stall.  It is a water resistant finished section of Luan with a nice pattern to it.

this is now weekend of July 23rd.  The AC unit did not fit under the sleeper so it was cut in to the back wall.   I think this was a big mistake!
