I realized I hadn't posted a picture of the cabinet with the new handles. So while I'm at it, I thought I would post a couple of our weekend campsite.

Have a great Memorial day weekend and remember those who have sacrificed so much for all of us.

Have you gotten around to weighing the finished product fully loaded?

She's right at 3500 lbs. But not bad considering she's also 17' x 7.5' x 9.5'. About average for that class.

I bet the silver metallic exterior really pops in the sun, much more than the pics show. She must stand out like the jewel that she is! :thumbsup: :applause:

Funny thing about the paint. I used a flake I've never used before. It was a Holographic Silver. It's pretty cool and sparkles with an unimaginable prism of color! But, I have yet to get it to show up in a photo and that's a bit disappointing.

Here's what I used:

Looks like this:

In the shade it looks like Silver. You can't even see the flake because its Holographic. When the sun comes out... Boom! Pretty cool really.

Thanks for the comments KC

I was cleaning Astro tonight after our four day weekend. We had a great time ... Lakeside Corn Hole, some exploring, a few rain showers but the four of us played Aggravation and Dominoes at the Dinette and had a great time. I took a few pictures tonight. We are 'so close' to being finished, just missing a couple cushions. I know the building will continue on in some fashion, with Solar among a few other things in the future. Anyway, I wish y'all could see her in person and if you ever find yourself in the Hoosier State, come camp by the pond. It's cozy and quiet and Breakfast will be served!

This was my view from the bed tonight:

I guess that's about it! Still working on a carved glass piece for the Galley. I'll post a couple pictures when it's finished. Until then, Happy Building and Happy Camping!

Thanks Brotherman. And you have been here since Day One. Four and a half years. Crazy...
