trips to Lowe's.  We did a lot of research before starting this project.  We went to Lowe's three different times on windows just to check sizes and see what we could order direct.  We looked at doors with the inset stained glass and even tried checking out baker's doors.  In the end, we decided to pick up some windows at Habitat for Humanity instead.

The next big decision was around the outside of the wagon.  What did we want it to be?  There is tongue in groove which is the best for the wagon.  It looks really good and finished.  There is however the issue of cost.  Buying wood that is already tongue in groove is significantly more expensive than doing the cutting ourselves.  At this time of this writing we were still debating on what the best course of action would be.

These are the beaded boards above and the tongue in groove below.  We opted for the tongue in groove look, now we just have to decide if we're going to make it, or buy it.

Lowe's was pretty much our go to spot for picking up the majority of the new items that we needed for the wagon. Where possible we picked up everything else at the second hand stores and shop.  Even our hurricane straps were picked up at Habitat for Humanity.  Our interior wall covering was purchased at Goodwill as were the majority of the interior design furnishings.
