This is my first attempt at a blog and using WordPress…
I’m an engineer and as such will try just about anything when it comes to DIY/restoration. There’s nothing more I like than pulling things apart to see how they work…whether I can put them back together again, with them working again and no leftover parts is another thing entirely!
I’m not a craftsman of any sort but rather more of a jack of all trades so whilst I can do most things (weld, machine, fabricate, plaster, plumb, electrics etc.) and I love projects (I designed and built a CNC Router from scratch, just because I wanted one for making RC planes: see http://www.mycncuk.com/threads/2148-Comments-sought-on-new-build-A-CNC-Router-for-RC-Gliders-and-Planes) I thought, “how hard can restoring an old caravan be, it’s just a bit of woodwork, some paint and a new bit of carpet surely?!” Well I guess we’ll see how hard it can be in this blog!
I’m doing the design, fabrication and general restoration and my wife will be the interior designer, and boss/accountant. We’re aiming for something a bit more ‘retro’ than the 1980’s style it was…stay tuned!
