    • Yes! It has grown into a monster. We changed some plans and had some really neat (new) ideas which meant we could leave the shower where it is – however, then my husband had the great idea to turn the old water tank (with lots of work) into a waste tank…. it will be great in the end -but goodness,the mess! I am dreaming of a new office AND bedroom – hard to believe at the moment – but we will get there!

  3. That’s why we stripped out the lot, now we can build it the way we want it. Although plans are changing as we think of new ways to do whatever. Let’s hope I have sorted it all out before we actually start the inside in April

    • It’s amazing how plans change. And it is a good thing to have time on your hands – I mean before it all starts. Six months ago when we bought the boat we had lots of different plans. Having lived on her since then, the plans have changed, things we thought we would change we will not do much to – for instance, the galley works REALLY well as it is – and just needs tweaking. Also, because doing the waste tank slowed us right down (sourcing welders etc), we have re-thought our cabin/bathroom plans and have actually created 2 wardrobes without losing space in the cabins – go figure! πŸ™‚ Looking forward to seeing some pics of your work!
