Since we tore the interior apart and started scraping out the rot, I longed for the day when we could unveil our completed motor home Grand Designs style for all to admire! The reality however is that we still have a lot of painting to do and gadgets to add, but to a point I have to admit that it is finished.

I realise that things are how they are, I'm still very proud of what we have done these past 2 years, and I know can't wait forever to update the Blog for the sake of things looking neater in the photos.

So here is the official unveiling (with room for improvement!) including the before photos for impact to please the show off in me!

So there she is! Waki is now suited to being lived in permanently, not just for weekends. The rot has been replaced with fresh clean wood and the leaks have been stopped. OK as I said to start with we do need to get the paint out on a lot of areas to finish things off but that's all we had time for before the wedding!

Thanks again to everyone for your support and help with this project! It's truly changed our lives and I'm sure we have a lot more to come! :)
