Slow and Steady Wins the Race, huh?

Sorry for the delay in posts...

Unfortunately, there hasn't been a TON of progress since the tile extravaganza....but we have been plugging away.  This week we moved on to the ceiling...which, along with the rest of the cart, was just the tin exterior and the insulation we added at the beginning of the project.

Here's my attempt at a "before" picture (laying on my back)

We bought Pressure Treaded Hardboard to cover the insulation, and painted it white for a clean, crisp look.

After an amazing impromptu shoulder workout trying to fit these panels in the grooves, we had a bit of success.

Then we nailed them up with a compressor nail gun...

We will now get all the panels up and have a brand new look inside the cart!  

Up next...PLUMBING!  We will have 3 sinks total, and of course, we'll be up to code when it comes to the health department.  The plumbing (like everything else) is tricky because of the limited space and amount of h2o, power and resources we'll have in the cart.

Hand Washing Sink

The larger sinks will be across the back wall adjacent to this little sink.  We still need to get a small water heater, water pump, fresh water tank, grey water tank and all of the hardware to go with our sinks.  If anyone has any brilliant plumbing advice, please send it our way!  As always, we appreciate the help and any of the aforementioned materials you may have laying around is always accepted as well!
