Kitchen area, complete with cat. Not plumbed yet, though.

We found out that that awesome harvest gold oven/stove is missing the element for the over part... I wondered how fire was supposed to get in there! Wonder where I can buy old 1970s camper oven parts?


The couch is missing the back cushion in this pic. Today we picked up a door from my grandparents' house to use on top of the tub as a table. It's an antique door from an old wooden ship with metal bands around it. They made it into a tabletop for a picnic table, so we had to dismantle it. It'll require some work to look nice again.


The bedroom. The panel on the side of the small bed isn't attached yet but i put it there to show y'all. We used butterscotch colored stain/sealant in one.


My bed. I made the coverings for the beds and couch.


Dan's bed.


My bed, view from front. Hi, Frankenstein. This bed and the couch are 5'2" long. I sleep curled up in a ball, so that's plenty long for me.

You guys rock...Keep it up. And it was very considerate to put that special window in down low so the cat can peer out the back.

Lookin' good.

I like Tangos idea about dropping the cage down the wall and use as a clothes hamper. Think of how much money we can save by not having to buy cat litter.

I cut my bed down to 73" x 31" from 76" x 36". I need the extra foot space for up to 3 dogs & 2 cats, though I am practicing allowing only one of each in bed at a time. They'll be no more Three Dog Nights in my bed. Hubby can pick up the slack and have to other two dogs & a cat since he's hesitant about cutting his bed down. In fact I've been working on getting the Beagle to sleep with me, so he can sleep with the two GSP's.

What are those shade made of and how do you have them hung? It looks like that foldout sun shades that you put up in cars.

Yep, it's Reflectix. And I first heard about it on Popupportal. I used to be active in that forum since we were in the 1969 Cox Campsqire popup.

And it does make a huge difference. Our bus has stock insulation and one 10,000 BTU window AC unit in the rear. In full sun, no AC and no reflectix, 100 degrees outside, probably 120 inside. With AC and no reflictix, 95. With AC and reflectix, 85. Once we put in the three walls we've made it so that the rear can cool down to 70 or less, the middle bedroom down to 80, and the front probably 85-90. If it's 100 degrees outside we can hole up in the back two rooms until it's cool enough to hang out in the living room. The main reason for the AC is for the animals to be safe in the heat, so the back room staying coolest is exactly how we wanted it.

wonder is double or triple layers in key locations would be cost effective?
