Man, time really flies. Except when you’re hand polishing camper bits. Then it seems to drag a bit. (Our sad chant over the last handful of weeks seems to be to the tune of “it’ll be so nice when we’re finally ready to paint this thing,” and “I bet when we paint, all of a sudden it’s going to look like we just did everything overnight,” and “ouch, my hands hurt”.) But, every laborious and painstaking swipe of steel wool brings us closer to a finished camper, and for this we are truly grateful. So enough jabbering, let’s get to what it takes to get the exterior windows and door trim lookin’ all sorts of dapper. If you’re behind, don’t you fret. You can catch up on our camper renovation here.Read More
Eight weeks. It's been eight weeks since I've posted about the happenings on the camper and I'm so sorry for that... but who really wants to see a whole post just about caulk removal? Yeah, that's what I thought. I'm getting kinda bored just talking about it now, but in addition I'll also share the other things we've been doing over the last two months to get the exterior cleaned up before we can finally get to painting. Riveting as it is, I'll touch on the caulk removal briefly for the ones and ones of you who might face the same issue or if you're just a bit of a caulk freak. Hey, you do you. (To be fair, we haven't been working every single weekend — birthdays, our Bahamas vacation and two full-time jobs have taken up some camper time — so I don't want to scare you away thinking this actually would take you this long.) If you haven't already, read from the beginning to get caught up on how we got here before we dive into the wonderful world of caulk.
Hold onto your seats, today we're going to talk about:

Repairing holes in and waterproofing the exterior metal walls
