How to remodel, rebuild, or refurbish houseboat interiors?
Just wondering how to remodel, rebuild, or refurbish our houseboat interior? I would pretty much like to gut the master bedroom, and put my cherry queen size bed in and nightstands that were in my house.
I know they'll need to be bolted down which is fine. Also, I'd like normal walls without the fabric and the mirrors. I want to hang art. Who can do the work for me?
Any help is appreciated, Joyce. Reply - Answer
Well Joyce, congratulations on the decision to remodel or refurbish your houseboat interior.
Since it's my wife who has the decorative skills or all the talents when it comes to houseboat decoration, I'll leave that aspect to her. However, I can help you when it comes to the construction aspects.
You ask who can do the work for you, and my first reply would
be that when it comes to electrical, or mechanical marine work, you should always consult someone who is "qualified and knowledgeable" in working in houseboats or the marine environment.
When it comes to decorative, placement, and houseboat remodeling interior type work, you can consult anyone of your choice that has some "general carpentry skills". Just a note, try and get some referrals, since you don't want to undertake a large project, only to find that the job takes forever to complete, and is not finished along the quoted price.
If your contemplating changing your houseboat interior, you should try and take some pictures of the "before & after" and post them since I'm sure there are many other houseboaters that are looking for ideas, and an overview of the overall experience.Lastly
