Airstream Renovation Tour: Before and After

Ashley Longnecker Ashley Longnecker / April 17, 2017

After months and months (and months!) of pouring our days and nights into this renovation we are finally finished! 

Both the interior and exterior of our 1972 Airstream Sovereign Land Yacht came to us in pretty pristine shape - eight track and all!

It was so loved and taken care of by the family that owned it before us that we wanted to make sure we did the renovation right. We owed that much to them at least.

Airstream Renovation - Weeks 25 & 26 Finishing It Up

Ashley Longnecker Ashley Longnecker / April 02, 2017

You may recall that from the last post we had help from my Uncle Fred and finished up with the doors, drawers, and floor. Which left us with a final punch list and one major project (making custom frames for the vista windows)

Our final punch list included things like, caulk around the tub and floor, hang hooks for towels, touch up paint, figure out what was wrong with the water pump, reattach the small back splash on the kitchen countertop, etc. We had several small things to fix and fine tune but there was one major project...

Ashley Longnecker Ashley Longnecker / March 23, 2017

With the bathroom project behind us, it was time to call in reinforcements. We were nearing 6 months on this project and we were ALL ready for it to be done. 

My Dad had been keeping his twin brother informed on the whole process. They talked multiple times a week and bounced ideas off of each other. Well, Fred has some special tools for making cabinets and we were about to that point, so Dad made a very important call.

Airstream Renovation - Bathroom

Ashley Longnecker Ashley Longnecker / March 11, 2017

Guys, we are so far behind. Let me back up a bit and tell you about our bathroom.

We choose to go really functional with the bathroom. Instead of picking designer tile and spending way too many hours grouting said tile, we chose a simple bathtub with a plastic inclosure and shower curtain.
