There are about 2-ish weeks left before we move out of our house and move onto the boat. Since that means my current house is a complete wreck right now, I thought it might be a good time to look back on just how far we've come on our "new house."
Buying an old boat and doing all of the work on it ourselves (ok, mostly it was Riley) was the only way that a dream like this was going to be possible.
a good cleaning and polishing, a fresh coat of bottom paint and a new boot stripe. I picked the colors. Putting that art degree to good use, you know. Now she matches :)
Riley built the new doors himself and cleaned up that side over there with the broken electronics. He's installed a few others since the picture was taken.
We sanded and refinished all of the teak interior. ALL of it. Riley built the beautiful new table, complete with an inlaid compass rose, and my mother in law sewed new covers for our cushions.
There was a whole lot of other stuff that went on, but it was pretty boring and didn't make for great pictures. But, if you're interested about the details of any of the projects, we blogged about them on The WaterLog!
