Well with a big percent of the interior woodwork done its time to fill sand, prime and sand some more. At least its not as bad as filling and sanding fiberglass. I never want to do that again. :( Anyway if I can get this priming done maybe I can blow on some texture this weekend. WOOT!

Weekend update... :mrgreen: My wife painted the outside of the wings with oil based white rust-o-leum and I primed, textured and painted the inside walls. I also strung up wires in preparation to install the outside skins. The cabinet trim is still covered in white primer. It will eventually be dark brown. I am coming up on my two month anniversary on the start of this project. WOOT! 8)

I'm not much of a cabinet maker but these will do. 8) Tomorrow I need to build the large door for the one on the right.

Bored with woodwork so I played with the lighting a little bit. Wall light in overhead bedroom and LED light strip installed in the "sideboard"? LOL Also built the dinning table which can be mounted sideways to act as more counter space. I installed cup holders but still need to paint the edges brown. Maybe later this weekend.

Amazing work and progress in such little time. I've only gotten as far as picking plans out since June. :( May I ask, how do you plan on moving this out of the garage when ready? Will these campers slide easily?

I have a set of corner jacks and will replace the feet with casters. I have 2 inches of clearance on the garage door so it should work out.

Not a lot of work done in October. I had TONS of work at my job and the kids have had parades (marching band) and gymnastic events every weekend but this week I can get back to it. Last night I started installing the interior layer of the roof. Those curves up front were tuff but the wife and I got it installed. The rest should be cake.

Took the day off from work today and worked on the wooden tent a little.   :D Installed the forward inside portion of the ceiling/roof added some texture and paint. Plan to try and work on more section of the ceiling tomorrow and Sunday. Oh also ran more wiring for lights (inside and out).

The arch in the forward ceiling came out pretty decent. That shadow makes it look like there is a kink in it but its a perfectly smooth arch.   :mrgreen:

Haven't seen anything for a while now? Been enjoying your build so far and it's looking real nice.
