Renovating derelict cabooses into luxury Bed & Breakfast accomodations.
The project starts with removing and cleaning the inside but leaving the original cupola with chairs as well as the closets and toilet room. The beautiful oak floors were exposed under many layers of grey paint. We have 9 themed cabooses of which 6 have been completed as well as a 1937 Zephyr stainless steel dining car. Track # 7, our current project is themed "Casino Royale" which will be our most elegant yet.
We started before power was brought in so our Ryobi Battery tools were invaluable. I was able to recharge them in my pickup.
