Committed to the industrial look

The pipe and fittings for the office are in and I installed a CO2/LP flush 12v monitor.

Back at it!

I have been paralyzed with a decision as to whether I will keep the original walls that I put up in a rush before my summer trip.  I don’t like the old laminate board, but they are up and functional.  In talking it through with several friends and family, I realized that you don’t really see much of the walls once the rest of the interior is in and the cost and time of redoing it felt overwhelming.  So I decided to leave them installed, but I may paint (white board paint?) or cover some of them.  With the bathroom and twin bed essentially done, Rosie wants her office, kitchen, and dinette built.  I decided to work on the office next, given that I was working my way from back to front.

Airstream Office Plan (Google Sketchup)

Airstream Office Plan (Google Sketchup)

The office is going in along the curb side in-between the bathroom and frig area where the other twin bed would’ve been.  I want it to have a work surface, shelves for storage bins, heater, standing desk, and wall-mounted monitor on a swivel.  I also wanted to do it in a way that I could convert the shelf area into a bed as needed (not asking much).  I came across these Kee Klamp fittings and aluminum pipe while looking for building material options. I redid the measurements (Thanks Jo!) and used the Sketchup I had made of Rosie last winter to design the area and flesh out the materials list to determine cost and make an order.  Here’s a jpg of the current draft from SketchUp for the office.  The gate-like structure on the lower left (fore) has an LP catalytic heater on it that can be swung out to point to other areas of the trailer and offer support to a bed conversion.  The monitor and laptop tray would also swing on the vertical pipe.  I can also add shelves on the right wall (aft) connected to the vertical pipe.  I can store a board under the other twin mattress that could be placed on the shelves and a thin mattress could be rolled out on it for a high bed.

If I go through with this plan, I’ll post a link to the project space on their website.  Feedback welcome.

Thanks Casper!  He has been there for over 40 years, so was there when Rosie was built!

Airstream Service Center and lounge:  free coffee and wifi!

Falling off the grid

Sunday, June 3rd, 2012

It was a great Alumapalooza in Jackson Center, OH and wonderful to share it with Nathan, Johanna, and Gail along with all the other Airstreamers.  It was (is) frustrating that the cell/wifi service is so bad here.  I like not being tied to the computer, but I didn’t like feeling out of communication with family and friends.  I had planned to post everyday, but it was too hard.

I really enjoyed HymnForHer on Friday night and Antsy McClean last night with guest harmonica player, Dave Winick (of Vintage Trailering)

I am now parked in the Airstream factory Terra Port.  I have an appointment tomorrow to have the gas lines installed so I can have hot water and eventually a stove, frig and catalytic heater. I felt ok doing the electric and plumbing, but will feel better having the gas done professionally. If Newton was still around, I’d do it with him.

I bought a used stove at the swap meet that came out of a 1975 Trade Wind.  I hope it works.  

Nathan and Jo are on their way back to FL and I spent the afternoon cleaning up and watching the Jackson Center parade.  There are several ‘palooza folks around so it’s like an after party.
