progress has been rather slow - I knew it would need some work so the garage wasnt that much of a nasty surprise but still €666 :random: :random: still its paid now and that included getting the CT and dealing with the rather worrying tendancy it had to get stuck in reverse ............. not good when I had just reversed across the yard into a dead end which meant it was stopping anything getting in or out !!!!! The garage receptionist didnt seem to understand why I didnt like the number - dont they do '666' here ???

Inside we now have a nice new floor as the existing one was a bit 'spongy' in places and I didnt see the point in doing a lot of work on top of it then have to take it all out again - so another €100 for 3 more sheets of ply. Walls are all painted white and the roof is now clean - it was filthy !!!

I sold the Ifor Williams for €3400 so its only just starting to cost me .....

Once I have picked up the secondhand banch seat that my garagist has found for me and fitted it we will be good to go :thumbup: :thumbup:

The steelwork only comes out to €150 and I've swopped the welding for a brand new butler sink that is in my garage and never got used .... so now we are up to €3700 ...... and almost done (I hope) its still much cheaper than buying one ready done in the UK and a lot cheaper than getting one here ....

Progress -brilliant! Sounds like you're doing everything properly and that it is going to be really smart. Love the photo. Do you get to break a bottle of champagne on the side when it's finished?

We could Helen - although it wont be finished as I dont want to fit the rubber floor just yet if I am going to sleep in it, it smells v strongly and I think it would give me a headache - I am going to get everything ready and all the welding done so that when I get back I can get it finished off :thumbup: :thumbup:

I forgot the windows are also in ......
