My boyfriend, Rick Gerring, was working on his teardrop up until a few weeks ago when he unexpectedly passed away. Some of you may have seen his earlier posts (under this same name as I have "hacked" his account). He made some progress since his November post and had just finished the electrical. Since he had been a Master Electrician for many years, this is a good thing.
He LOVED his teardrop project and regretted every day that he couldn't work on it. We had planned on going to Yosemite later this year. I am determined to get this project done for him as much as for myself. I am quite handy for a city-dwelling graphic designer -- can saw a straight line and have done a lot of finishing work on house remodeling projects BUT really need some help with this project.
The project is 70% or more complete. I will post some updated photos. We have nearly all the parts to finish it -- doors, trim, sheet metal, etc.
I am looking for someone with some carpenter skills to help with the fabrication of the hatch door.
Also need help getting the trim and sheet aluminum on, and doors and trim -- or at least some guidance as we do have some friends and cousins who also offered to help.
I am committed to this project and learning what I can along the way. I am ready to put in many, many hours of sanding, sealing, puttying finish work as I was slated for in any case. I want to put in my sweat equity, and not have too large of a bill for his estate. (I will cover costs until the estate does.)
I am also in need of some friendly advice. Is there someone in the Seattle area (project is in Shoreline right now) that could advise me even if they did not want to take on this job? Or someone who would like a paying weekend job?
Thank you very much!
