We are hoping to go out to Escape this weekend so that we can soon start the process !

Were there any other mods that you would highly recommend?

Keep us posted with your pictures! Cheers Janet
Thanks ...... we have the thermal windows and extra insulation ... we also had the closet and kitchen base cabinets reduced in depth which gives us a generous open area . The closet still easily holds a hanger but it also means we have a smaller fridge - which is fine for us . We are very satisfied .

Your photos are great and much appreciated

Hi , thank you.... the curtains are not on a rod , they are stationary side panel . They are simply stapled in one pleat at a time ...then tied back . As we brought our own blinds the Escape people just predrilled the ready made valances for us - so it was easy to staple the panels in and then screw the valance up into place - very simple . To wash or exchange just remove valance - remove staples and go back to start . The tie-backs have a valcro sticky tab with it's mate just on the frame of the window . ( the valances bearly cover the venetian headrail there would definitely not be room for a rod )

Little updates ....

Probably not interesting for everyone as sinks and faucets have really been done and well documented . Our white sink and faucet were still fine but I didn't like that the white drain always gets stained ( not too hard to clean - just bugs me ) . I put the four large dinette cushions into one upholstery cover - it's now like a mattress . The original upholstery is still in perfect nik and stowed away . Just stapled over the original valances , just washed curtains as they co-ordinate fine with the new upholstery .

Love that stove cover? Was it custom made, or a standard piece?

Well done on everything!
