Started to look into some water damage in the kitchen of our 83 Pace Arrow. The more I looked, the more I found. I have some pics of the damage so far. Anyone interested in following a rebuild thread?

Here you can see the 2 pieces on the left with the uprights holding the 2 x 3's. This is just a temporary solution as I work on things in the middle of the "living room".

Well, here is what I did. Using some 2 x 3 x 8 lumber, I created some extra shelf space next to the roof. Fortunately, I still have a few inches of headroom and can walk around under this.,

Using the existing shelving, running a 2 x 3 across the width, and then a brace under the horizontal 2 x 3's to hold them up, along with a few Kreg screws, and now I have some extra space for some lightweight items to get them off the floor and out of my way until I use them.

Now, I think I've got it. Whatcha' gonna' do, whathca' gonna' do,  what are you going to do, when you are running out of space to work and have wood on the floor in the way? Kind of like this...

Well, due to technical difficulties, I can't post any pics tonight. I'll try to get things corrected for tomorrow night. Have a great day!

Good evening everyone. Nope, not dead. Sorry for being M.I.A. for a while. It's good to be back. Hope your year is starting off well. I won't bore you with a bunch of B.S. stories. (Baby Sitting). Ah, I'll tell ya, grandkids are great. You can love 'em and send 'em home! Lol.

Anyhow, couple of pics coming up.

I'm still here, after bumbling around a good while.  Not fond of the new format; not near as clean as the previous version.  But I will soldier on...  Still looking forward to your remodel efforts, fulltimin.

Yep we're all still here. True it is different than before and I was a bit apprehensive yesterday. But after being on the new format for a day now I'm finding it easier and easier.Fulltimin I look forward to seeing updates on your project in the future.

Hey, fulltimin - good to see you here!

All 8400-something replies to your topic are here. And apparently I have found your thread (without even searching), and the latest reply is at the top of the list - there is a user setting for that, and I no longer need to navigate to the very last page.

I have been using the site on a smallish smartphone screen, and it is now mobile friendly. I have to admit that I haven't seen the new layout on a big screen yet, though.

Hang in there, it may grow on you. And I need to see the progress of your project 😉

Well, I must say, what a shock to see the new format. Looks like there are others not very happy either. Look like we just landed on Mars!

I wanted to check in, as we are currently in the Poconos in Eastern Pa for this week. I hope to get back to work on the moho next week one day.

Then again, I guess it depends on whether anyone can find this thread anymore. I cast one vote for going back to the old format, if this is the only other option.

The good news is that our schedule just changed with the grand baby, so maybe I'll be able to get something done. Wahoo!

70 tomorrow. Then back to the 50's. I did get some cleaning done on the inside of the moho. First I have been out there for a while.

Perhaps that will spur me on.....

Our temps are supposed to moderate a bit for the weekend. I sure am glad of that! One of my Grands and I went out to lunch yesterday and last night I was out to dinner. What a day! Since I have moved I still havent found my winter coats. I am hoping I do today. I still have like 5 or so big boxes I havent unpacked.So, I cant pick on full for not finishing his rebuild!

Good to hear it full! We had an abrupt change in weather this week. We went from abnormally warm (80s) to freezingly cold. We had temps below freezing last night. It surely is a shock to the system! I guess from seeing the weather on tv, it happened to most of the east coast. I hope everyone got their "castles" winterized!



Pretty much the same here in central Pa. 80 this past Sat, and tonight is mid 20's with high in the 50's tomorrow.
