About Me

remodeling to acommodate an elderly loved one

When I invited my mother to come and live with my family, we had to make some changes to accommodate her. The changes that needed to be made were all within reason and were all required so that she could get around with her walker and eventually a wheelchair if need be. I hired a remodeling contractor to assist us with making the changes. I learned a lot while discussing what needed to be done and what it would take to get it complete. I created this blog with the hopes of helping other families that are considering making the same changes in their homes.

Remodeling And Improving Your RV

An RV can be a useful type of vehicle for individuals that enjoy traveling. However, it can be common for there to be some upgrades that older RVs may benefit from undergoing as it can substantially improve the comfort of the interior space of the cabin. 

Upgrading The Flooring In The Camper

The flooring in the RV camper is one of the features of it that can suffer major wear over the time that you use it. In particular, those that park their RV at rustic or other basic camping locations may track mud, dirt, and other debris into the RV. Choose a flooring option that is easy to clean and unlikely to experience wear from these issues. For this reason, individuals will often choose to replace carpet flooring with hardwood, tile, or other durable materials.

Installing The Amenities That You Are Wanting

When you are traveling in the RV, there may be a number of amenities that you want for your RV. During the remodeling process, it can be possible to install a range of amenities for your new RV. For example, individuals may want to install televisions, satellite internet connections, and enhanced storage. Making these changes will likely require a professional RV remodeling service due to the complexity of installing these amenities. In addition to the wiring work that will be needed, it is also necessary to secure these features so that they will not be knocked loose by the bumps and vibrations that can occur when the RV is being driven.

Improving The Air Circulation In The RV Cabin

The air circulation in the RV will be an important comfort consideration. During the day, the RV can become extremely hot and the air can become stale. Good air circulation and ventilation can dramatically improve the comfort of those inside the RV, and it can also minimize the chances of mold or other problems by allowing condensation to quickly evaporate. RVs will often have HVAC systems in them, but a person may want to upgrade this part of the vehicle. When upgrading the HVAC system for the vehicle, you will need to be mindful to stay within the capacity of the electrical system of the RV. If you are wanting to install an HVAC system that will exceed these limits, a professional RV remodeling service may be able to make the necessary upgrades, but this can substantially increase the costs and the amount of time that the remodeling will require.
