Here's the general idea I have for it. I hadn't thought of using the emergency windows though. That's a good idea.

Yeah that's probably where I got the initial idea. I also might use mine to grow small plants, maybe some herbs and vegetables that don't take too much space to produce.

I like...that design would fit well in an emergency window. You would only need the sides & the base. The window would protect them from rain and you could either cover the top with material or paint it to keep the sun off of them. If you designed it right the screening or something more flexible than chicken wire could stay attached and the base could just hang inside flat against the wall. Let me know when you do it or come up with any improvements to the design. I'm working it out in my head right now but I think it's very doable and would keep the bugs out.

This morning we built the little box for the wardrobe to sit on covering the wheel well hump. Pictures to come.

I just got done cutting one of my memory foam queen mattresses in half for the two single beds. It was surprisingly easy. I measured a line down, cut the cover, drew a new line, and took a big carving knife to it. It was pretty similar to cutting through tough fatty flesh. (That sounds terrifying, how do I know what that feels like? I skin and tan animal hides for a hobby.)

Don't know exact measurements, maybe you could scrounge an old shopping cart for the cage part. Reconfigure a bit here and there? Might be to heavy?

Great idea and if it could be designed to fold up when going mobile, it would be a big plus.

Of course you could always hang it on a wall and use it as a clothes hamper too.
