Now the fun part! We decided to shiplap a lot of the house, but not so much that it looked like a cabin. It’s an rv garage after all. I did all of this on my own. It took a lot longer than I anticipated, but I’m really happy with the way it turned out.
I wanted to use every inch of space to the best of our ability. There were spots like this chase. This wall has electrical, plumbing and ac ducts for the bathroom and closet in it, but the bottom / front area was empty. So I grabbed some stock Lowes cabinets and stacked them on top of each other. I attached them to one another with some furring strips and then set them into the wall. Instant pantry!
Ya boy Dustin promised me that I could do the backer board and tile for the shower, but I was a little nervous since I’ve never waterproofed a shower. Thankfully, pawpaw overalls showed up to help me with that process. Super easy and I was overthinking the entire process. We finished it off with Red Guard from Home Depot to assure the whole thing was waterproofed. This was another huge cost saver!
