I caught these two lovebirds sharing their morning meal.  Actually, she wasn’t sharing much!

Trotwood Restoration: Rotten Realization

Adventures in the Trotwood Restoration:

It’s obvious to us now just how naive we were when we brought the camper home.  We thought this is great we just need to clean her up a bit and hit the road.  Well, rather quickly we learned that this would not be the case.  Remember the blood, sweat, and tears I told you about?  It all started when we decided to try to knock out a small dent out on the front panel of the camper.  We unscrewed the metal, lifted it up, and…ahhhhhh…. rotten wood came crumbling to the ground right before our eyes.  We really should not have been surprised.  The camper is 45 years old and it had been stored in a cornfield except for the time spent cheering for the Indianapolis Colts.  But, we were surprised and it was crystal clear the campers inaugural trip was going to be postponed a while.  We slowly but surely totally rebuilt the entire front and back end with treated lumber.  We have taken out all the windows, re-screened and re-sealed them, and all of the window cranks have been replaced.  We are now working on prep for the exterior paint.  Until next time!
