Finishing the small things
So doing the initial build was easy, but I am still doing the little finishing that needs to be done. As mentioned before I hate to preplan the build to far in advance as things seem to change as the build progresses. So I had a pile of small finishing projects to work on that I managed to get done over the past week.
Several little projects are now done……
- The new cupboard door would not stay closed. I knew this was going to be a problem when I installed the hinges as they would not close all the way by themselves. NOT impressed with the quality of things that you buy these days. In two packs of hinges (4 hinges) I got one that was bent and two that would not close all the way. Did not want to return as the holes are in the doors and cabinets and seeing that out of 4 hinges they are all different sizes I decided to make them work. First I tried a magnetic latch – no go. Then I bought a latch that is used on the RV and WOW does it hold. Push latch.
- Cross wood to cover the splits in the panels needed to be done. plywood, cut, stained done. Of course one bolt went in funny and now I need to cut it out, a good project for a rainy day.
More to do
Not completed but getting close!! Will work on finishing more in the next couple of weeks!
One last thing
Forgot to add above that I also insulated the sliding door and the rear doors. WOW sure makes it a lot quieter and hopefully also makes it a little more cool / warm when needed.
