Default bedroom remodel

Started a bedroom remodel. I removed all the bedroom as it twin beds. I am gonig to make in a walk around queen. I have photos and will try to post them. I found many electrical relays behind the cedar closet. There were also several bundles of wires market as spare in the aft area behind the closet walls. I assume they run the length of the bus.

Peter, you weren’t kidding when you said remodel! You’re a brave man to tear into it like that. You must have some skills, and the confidence to do that job…me; I would be too scared to even think about doing that. I would have to pay out the big bucks and have one of the known remodel guru’s do the job.

Good luck on this project and keep the photos flowing!

Default previous photos

Here are some photos of a project a few months ago. I replaced the windows with Peninsula thermopane. I had to cut the inside opening a little bigger for the new window mounting rings. I aslo had to make the thin birch frames to cover the corners. The corners had been cut to accomidate the old square corner frames, so the thin birch frames were made to cover the corners.

Hi Rob,

I think the Fein Multimaster was the original. It's since been copied by Dremel (Multi-Max), Rockwell, Black&Decker, even HarborFreight sells a version. I think Fein has the best quality, but it's also the most expensive.

Pete, The bedroom job looks very ambitious. That will pass the dark months. I will bet the weather today doesn't look like those pictures.

In the window pictures you show a thin kerf saw. What make is it and are you happy with it. The one I was looking at was about $ 400.US and I was having a little trouble pulling the trigger.
