Posts Tagged With: Airstream Project

Two Projects at once

I wanted to upgrade the AC for the house and get a mini-split put in for the living/dinning  room and also get a mini-split put in the Airstream. I got the two ton unit for the house and the one ton for the RV. I could have gotten an RV AC for the Airstream but they aren’t as efficient as a mini-split. This RV isn’t going anywhere so the mini-split seemed like a good idea even if I almost cried when the installers cut into the skin of the Airstream. I’ll get over it and so will the Airstream. Later on there will be a roof built over the Airstream and a wall around the bottom with a patio and steps made of  brick and lots of plants to break up the austere look of metal and brick.

Still a long long ways to go on this project.

For those not familiar with the Mini Splits here is a link that tell all about it; https://learn.compactappliance.com/mini-splits/

Here are some photos of the work;

The work still needs to be neatened up this is a work in progress photo.

I got work started on the Airstream Trailer

Today I get working on the Airstream; taking trash to the dump removing the sofa and wiping down surfaces and clean out cabinets. There was a lot of dirt, dust and rodent droppings to clean up. There was an older generator inside too and I got that out of the rig. I made a couple of trips to the dumpster and still have work to do tomorrow cleaning the bathroom and cabinets. I’m happy to be working on this project. It will take a while to get everything done and I’m sure there will be problems as I go along.

Here are some photos;
