Unfinished project must be sold due to loss of workspace.

Needs work but we have lived in it through the winter and been warm and dry.

There is so much to say about this van that i cannot possibly itemise every detail, so i'll try to give an overall idea, then if you wish to view or see more pics etc thats no problem.

Main problem obviously is the paint, but with a pressure washer this will come off, and the original paint is in good condition and a very nice colour. I have had a go at getting the paint off with a steam cleaner and it was working very well, but i ran out of diesel for the boiler and so had to finish early, but if i,d had the time etc i could have had it down to the original paint with no difficulty.

Inside ,  we have fitted the stove (a Stovax Brunel ) When i bought the van the skylight had leaked and marked the roof quite badly, i removed cleaned , sealed and refitted the skylight and its now bone dry.Above the kitchen i removed the cupbooards intending to formica the wall, but havent done that yet so the wall is a bit marked.

All windows are self contained units with integral flyscreen and blackout blinds ,some of which are complete and working some are not. Some of the windows i have removed resealed and refitted, some still need doing.

Almost all the windows also have a roller blind fitted,  and i have a full set of very nice draw curtains and matching pelmets.

The dinette makes into a single bed and has a
concertina door to close off.

I have fitted a complete new main door and frame though this still needs a few screws putting in.

The two main light fittings are beautiful brass and cut glass items which really do sparkle when lit up.

This has to be the biggest caravan that Hobby build as i've never seen another with such a big bedroom.

Almost done now, although the kitchen sink and hob unit is still  in place my idea was to fit a calor gas house type cooker with the fridge to the right of it,

Well i did say unfinished right !

ps i have kept the blow air heating system and most of the original corner unit which housed the gas fire.
