Sorry for not posting sooner but my computer died and I had to wait for a new one to come then hunt for my photos. Still haven't recovered everything. And now my phone went dead and won't take a charge...
Not much has been done this fall and winter except having the door knob cleaned, a new locking mechanism put in, and keys made for it.
I put new aluminum screen in all the window screens, and door screen & installed them. Plus I got my hubby to recreate the slide in the screen door with a piece of aluminum plate, as the original one had a split in it.
The outside of the door to the trailer had a small 1" hole worn through the bottom panel, & some dimples it that I thought wouldn't look nice if I just painted it. So I decided to cover the whole bottom of the door with some textured aluminum that I'd purchased for a backsplash but didn't use. I think it looks rather nice. I then painted the upper sides of the door a black semi-gloss.
For the inside of the door I went with an Antique Brass color that the window trim was painted so it matched. After painting I did some stenciling on the bottom of the door with a large turtle stencil a friend gave me and a few smaller ones I had on hand.
I then mounted the door stopper at the top of the door, and above the fridge vent to keep the door from denting the side of the trailer. I also mounted the grab handle just outside the door.
Once the door was done and installed I added some weather stripping around the door frame and will put some on the edges of the door too, so it's really snug. I also put more trim around the door frame inside where needed.
I managed to find a ramp for the threshold that my hubby had to modify just a little bit to make it higher.
I'm really liking how it turned out.
But now it's Christmas Eve and it's 12 degrees out so I'm staying in the house where it is warm. The welding on the tongue and bumper will have to wait until it gets up to at least 40 degrees.
