Finally got some time in on the trailer this weekend.

This weekend, I finished the cabinet frames, then framed in the drawer openings, installed all the cabinets, and put the paneling on them. I had previously believed that with a variety of rotary tools, die grinders, and 1/4″ routers that I had no need for a rotozip, and boy was I wrong. I picked up a rotozip yesterday and it kicks serious butt doing paneling work. The work would have been slow and painful with a rotary tool, and the router would have been too big & bulky to get into the tight spaces; the rotozip had plenty of power and speed, but it’s small enough to fit in the palm of your hand for the tight spaces.

With all the cabinets installed, I drilled and cut the various holes I need for wiring and plumbing. I also cut the hole in the exterior wall for the water heater and built the platform that it will be installed on. Next on the project list is to finally run all the wiring! There’s also a few more holes to make in the exterior for the water fill compartment, the exterior shower, and two small holes for the furnace intake & exhaust.
