Grounding day

Posted by blogadm on July 8, 2019 in Shasta Love |


I started this post last July of 2018. It has been almost that long since we worked on Peaches.  I wanted to get these photos in here but i am not sure i will remember all the details. I know we were rewiring the camper. We had to cut holes for lights ect and get the wires to the correct spots. There is also some photos of the back end and how we made the finished end on the bottom of the camper and other photos of how we cut around the trailer front. There is also a few pics of how I made a marker pen the right size to mark the top of the camper so we could cut it off at the size we wanted. I will ad more information if i remember something. I think that this is the summer we finish Peaches but i don’t want to jinx us. Knock on wood.

Two steps forward and one step back, still gets things done.

It has been a few years since my last post. Since then we have changed our minds on a few things. First and most noticeable will be that after all the shellac testing and talking about keeping it original, in the end, i didn’t like the color combo with my Peachy , Coral colors. So […]


Cabinet Making

Posted by blogadm on May 6, 2015 in Shasta Love |

Frank built the cabinet around the fridge to match the rest of the kitchen, and i helped He really loves the Joint Pro. It is an invaluable tool for using dowels to join wood. It lines them up perfectly! On the other hand, the most exciting part for me today was getting to use a […]


Shellac Testing

Posted by blogadm on April 20, 2015 in Shasta Love |

  Tested the Shellac today. Amber Shellac with 20 percent Denatured Alcohol. We tested it on samples of all the different wood in the camper. There was the original wood that needed to be sanded, the new birch, also sanded .and the pine parts, again sanded. Then we applied the Amber Shellac waited for it […]


Bed, Bath and Beyond

Posted by blogadm on February 28, 2015 in Shasta Love |

Samantha joined the Navy! She is in basic training at Great Lakes Naval Station. She wrote me a heartwarming letter, thanking me for all the opportunities we gave her and for all the fun she had working on the camper.  I plan on sending her pics as we go along with the restoration of “Peaches”.  She […]


We’ve come a long way baby…

Posted by blogadm on October 21, 2014 in Shasta Love |

  It has been a few months since my last posts. Living the crazy, wonderful life! We only work on “Peaches” on Fridays and we have only missed a few. We are making great progress!I took photos of the back wiring and framing so that we know where things go when we put it back together. […]


Moving along…

  It is funny that just when you feel like you are really making great progress everything looks like this… We feel a great sense of accomplishment even if every piece of the camper is spread over 4 garage spaces.   The Vent was a little difficult to remove as it was painted with this […]

Knight In Shining Armor Appears

Posted by blogadm on August 10, 2014 in Shasta Love |

Samantha and I were pulling out parts, carefully labeling each piece. I took photos of each part before we removed it and even saved the screws in baggies and labeled them for where they came from. All our tools are put away at the end of every workday and I am feeling very organized about the […]


Getting started…

Posted by blogadm on August 10, 2014 in Shasta Love |

I thought I was on my own and I was thinking I could do it myself if only I could learn how to use some power tools. I took a wood working class in high school with Mr. Dispensa as my teacher, and I made a fabulous butcher block cutting board for the final project but that was the extent […]
