Default Caboose Remodel

Well not much going on so I figured I would share some my story of this caboose/guest house that is almost done being remodeled. I have been working on painting it inside and out solo throughout the year, off and on. This is a second job for me, not a side job btw.
This early model Great Northern caboose is located on a beautiful stretch of waterfront on the Hood Canal at the base of the Olympic Mountains, and sits next to the log cabin/lodge.
The contractor is a wonderful guy and friend who is older than ANY of us here on PT, and he usually works 6 days a week doing an amazing and extensive job. Him and his one carpenter have stripped this thing inside and out, and rebuilt it on a whole new level. They do have an designer making decisions but the contractor designed many, many elements of the build along the way. Had to figure out how to make the interior frame work, how to fit everything. The structure is not plumb or square no matter what retrofits could be done to improve it so every piece was custom made and fit.
Several subs have lent their expertise and efforts towards electrical, plumbing, copper roofing, flooring, upholstery, powder coating, welding, tape and mud, etc.
The interior used to have old grey t-111 for lots of surfaces (looked rough). The new interior is sheetrock, poplar and Alaskan cedar trim and such, Sepilla doors and details, premium cedar ceilings, Edison style lighting, and much more.
I pre-primed and painted all premium clear cedar before installation (1 coat), and prepped and painted in place later as well. There was a mind boggling amount of work there despite the small size of the project. More so for the builder than I, but I had my hands full too through every stage.
Paints are Ben Moore Regal High Build inside and out, Cabinet Coat trim and cabs, Zar Ultra Max satin on ceilings.

That's pretty awesome. My wife and I got married on a local farm where the owner (customer of mine) hauled a caboose up onto a point overlooking the lake. He converted it to a dining car but it's certainly not as nice as the one you're working on. Him and his wife have lunch in it every day during the summer. You've done great work on this one.

I'm curious, how did you applied the Zar Ultra Max?

Thanks for sharing pics. This is an excellent showcase of your craftsmanship and ability. It must have been a great feeling seeing the end product as it looks gorgeous.

Thanks for the compliments lilpaintchic and pnwpainter.
On 4 of the ceilings I sprayed them with an airless with a 410 FF. All surfaces sanded and cleaned first, sprayed, sanded including grooves, then two more coats. I puttied the majority of holes before the last coat.
The bathroom ceiling was oil poly and I brushed that two coats.

Really neat job, thanks for sharing it.

Couple questions out of curiosity.
What did you putty the holes with on the Zar ceiling and why did you use oil in the bathroom?

Thanks Jmays, I used minwax wb puttys. Mixed up about 6 different colors with mahogany, golden oak, white, walnut.

There is a shower in the bathroom and the ceiling is close with limited space so oil was specced between the builder and paint store.

Thank you. It feels good to hear from such talented people like you all.

Just a disclaimer: I can't take credit for all paint related items. The door shop stained and toned the Sepilla interior side of their doors they built. The lead carpenter actually did priming prepping and painting as needed in my absence, even stain and pro fin stuff on the sepilla inside. Another paint shop was needed to prep, prime and paint the sepilla wood landings on the roof at the top of the 2 exterior ladders. All black metal outside was powdercoated, as well as gloss red flashings on exterior by a shop.

I am super proud of my boss, his carpenter (who does everything beyond carpentry too), boss's son who helped (another master craftsman), and the designer, an extraordinarily talented person, and all the other individuals and shops that put this thing together.

I thank them for the opportunity and the blessing to work with them.

It was a wonderful project and location to work at. I enjoyed the time spent out there, and with such an inspirational person as my boss and his crew.

Watching paint dry, not really. Bonus points if you can tell what vehicle is in the reflection.
