...and crafting a purposeful recovery

Eureka 2

Hi Guys. Although it’s not a permanent fix (is anything ever?), I have found a home for Sparta and it was sitting right under my nose, er, tongue (as in hitch) all along. She is staying where she is in a rustic and bucolic Sonoma County setting. This makes sense on so many levels. For one, I need a place to live in the northern Bay Area during the 5 month catering peak season. Rents here are astronomical ( north of $2,000 minimum) and it simply doesn’t make sense to put down that kinda ‘dough year round for a seasonal domicile. I have negotiated a sweet deal with my landlord that contains a two-step rent, higher for when we’re in the trailer and lower when we’re not. The Spartanette moves to Quincy, first chance I get. I can now travel to Italy to see my son, Quincy to see my daughter ( where we will restore the ’48) and wherever else for extended periods without hearing that huge sucking sound back home. Whew, what a relief! Also, with my axle problem, moving Sparta right now isn’t a great option. Finally, Sonoma County has a nice, moderate climate and with a portable air conditioner we’ll get through the summers just fine (I will have access to power to supplement my yet-to-be-installed solar system and water to refill my 63 gallon on-board water supply).

So there is a hell of a lot to do before our 5/1/20 move in. In no particular order:

  1. Buy and install propane oven/stove combo.
  2. Install lighting
  3. Raise trailer onto semi-permanent blocks.
  4. Make and install curtains.
  5. Install and vent wood stove.
  6. Finish cabinetry (interior shelving, knobs, slides, etc.)
  7. Buy furniture (sofa bed for guests, mattress for us, dining table, odds and ends)
  8. Run propane system (original is shot).
  9. Finish electrical closet.
  10. Begin solar install
  11. Install flooring.
  12. Yikes, I nearly forgot composting toilet!

As it relates to #11, here are some floor samples in vinyl that I am considering compliments of www.greenbuildingsupply.com.

So, clearly, I have some work to do.

The issue is something which not enough men and women are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy I stumbled across this during my hunt for something concerning this.
