Operation Demolition

This vintage camper renovation business has been slooooowwww going. Let me tell ya. Not for the faint of heart (or the instant-gratification-seekers). So many of the projects are small yet tedious, and the sheer volume of decisions that need to be made (should we keep the original ______, try and restore it, or just go buy a new one?), would make your head spin.

But besides all the un-fun bits, it really has been exciting to see things slowly coming together. Starting at the very beginning, we:

+ Cleaned out the previous owners paraphernalia, sorted through it, kept what we wanted, and pitched the rest
+ Shop vac-ed every square inch of the old girl
+ Did a good 409 job of washing down every surface we could

 and then the demolition work began...

+ My dad came over and helped remove all of the cabinet doors, light fixtures, hardware, and stove top
+ We disconnected the old gas lines
+ Removed the old furnace and fridge (that was a job!)
+ Removed a little damaged wood, and replaced it

and I took nary a picture of the whole thing.

More to come (with pictures! I promise!)...


  1. So exciting! And the whole process sounds awfully familiar. ;) Can't wait to see the finished product and the adventures that you take her on!
