Frame layout and holiday break!!

Posted by

Aluminum is here and the layout has begun. We started getting our first wall frame planned out and we worked through setting our door location and rough opening. We are building our wall frames so that they sit on our floor, (1″ of the 2″ new wall thickness), to aid in the process of installing the new walls and the roof to the existing rv platform. We are increasing our height by a little more than a foot in the front, sloping down a few inches in the back. This decision was made as I am 6′ 1″, and our existing ceiling was only 5′ 11″. We also extended the cab over portion, (our sleeping quarters),  forward by almost a foot to provide a very spacious sleeping and lounging area. This extension will not impair our vision and since we are building the frame work, we have made it strong enough to easily support the extended area. We will post more pics as the process continues, but we are now focusing on work to wrap up our clients projects prior to our soon upcoming break. We can’t wait to get back into the rebuild as soon as we return!
