Tanks A Lot!

So here it is - one of the tandem tanks to hold our grey water.
As a gift, gray is better than black.

Nothin' Says Lovin' Like...

This email lovingly arrived...
Looks like this might be just in time for your birthday! Nothing says I love you like a brand new gray tank….

At least I am not getting a BLACK tank!!!

Door in-a-Door Inside Details

In contrast to the hinges, the inside latches are simple.
It's all in the details, and they all need work.

Such a cool detail!

Same double-pin-hinge closes both doors!

Color Color Color

Once inside Barry's 1955 Flying Cloud Airstream, one of the first things I loved was the light expansive space and the wall color.  I know green Zolatone is not to everyone's taste, but it made me so very happy!!

Scott and I spent hours upon hours looking through interior design swatches to find colors. 
  • we like today 
  • we will like for years to come
  • will not show every speck of dust, sand, and dog hair
  • are 1955 appropriate
These may not appeal to everyone, but we like these selections.
UPDATE 1/29/2014 - 
   - our Marmoleum Mineral 5714 is discontinued - we need to start again.
