I really like the way you have designed your home around your family's needs, especially the family room connecting to the garage. The heirlooms and antique furniture are lovely, and clearly there to be used rather than just admired. The kitchen looks so homey and inviting, a place to sit and talk over a cup of coffee. Beautiful!

OK--Everybody--Repeat after me--

In Jersey--where I am FROM---we NEVER say:::: Going TO the shore

WE say:::

Goin' DOWN tha showahh

IT is permissable--but JUST--to actually pronounce this in the Queens English.

But why reveal you are NOT from there????

And NO it doesn't matter WHERE the shwoahh is FROM your starting point. You ARE going DOWN tha showahh.

And once you get there don't miss the Mussels in Hot Marinara. And tha beah. And the hahd (hard) rolls---found nowhere else BUT Jersey and not limited to the showahh. And Taylor Ham. Jersey Breakfast--Taylor Ham on a hard roll eggs optional.

We have "converted" many to our Taylor Ham habit and now some local stores here in far northern Upstate New Yawk stock it for all of us ex-pats and converts alike!

We are actively looking for an older either self contained or tow-behind trailer for both retirement and (for now!) weekends and guest house use. This re-do ROCKS and gives me TONS of ideas for what to do with what will surely be a dated and in need of major overhaul in decor! Sooooo happy to see the painted cabinets and re-done fabrics!

And yes so odd to see how the RV manufacturers still lag so FAR behind in terms of color options--one of the reasons I WANT to re-do one. That and the chance to make it MINE--without the tiny and annoying "booth" eating area; the overly large and yet strangely annoying fold out couch; (I have my eye on some leather chairs from Orvis--but will have to remember to buy and INSTALL them before we close 'er up!!!!)----I see no reason to NOT be as comfortable in an RV that we are going to LIVE in as we are in a house on a foundation. My only "issue" is that we need to be able to take our rather large motorcycle WITH us---so either we have to be able to tow that (we already do for some events) or put it inside (toy hauler). We have seen some pretty bare bones toy haulers ---mostly made for bare bones weekends with snow machines or moto cross kids---but I could def see buying one used and doing what was done here inside. But THIS is a great start!!!!!!

One thing I like on the older "Class A" types (the ones you drive but that do NOT require you to sleep over the steering compartment!!!) is where the bathroom is; the toilet was on one side of the "hall" and the sink and shower were on the OTHER side. There were pull-=across doors that spanned the hallway and you could make a MUCH larger space for taking a shower or dressing etc if wanted; or you had doors to close to take a shower in the small space and have the toilet able to be used in PRIVATE. This is something I am looking for as the newer bathrooms---with either a huge bathroom that wastes a LOT of space ----or has a "tub" so tiny my husband could not even get his FEET in--and I NEED a shower seat as I am handicapped and need to sit----Well for some reason these RV makers REFUSE to consider that the people that can AFFORD these huge rigs are A. Not getting any younger and B. Usually are not as spry as we once were! Yet the steps are so high you need to buy a mounting block from Tractor Supply to get IN or OUT; the ramps on the Toy Haulers are SO STEEP that that some of the TOYS cannot actually get UP them--much less mere mortals!!!--and the oversize slides and full featured kitchens--really--WHO is cooking for a platoon in there?? Who is SLEEPING a platoon in there????

Well they just are out of touch!
