Re: Mark's 95 Carpenter International

I've been busy just not able to post lately.

The wet bath is pretty much done, need to get some pictures of it to post.

Lately, I've been working on putting down the flooring and trimming out. Here's a couple of pictures from the front.

I got the counter tops done. Used glass mosaics from Lowes. I think they look pretty cool.



I'm about ready to finish up the sink counter top. Getting the kitchen sink installed will complete the plumbing.

Almost finished trimming out the bunks. You can see the cork flooring better in these pictures.

I picked up some inexspensive rugs sets. For $30 you get a 5'x7', a runner and a door mat. I bought 3 sets so that I could do the 3 walls. I put them up with contact cement.

I forgot the mention that I got the cork flooring down and put 2 coats of floor urethane on it.

Also the majority of the moulding is done, still plenty of holes to fill.

I'm also working on the table top and the closet doors.

Re: Mark's 95 Carpenter International

Very clever and artistic way to cover the walls with that figured carpet. With so many different designs on carpets, a person could get very creative. Excellent idea.

Re: Mark's 95 Carpenter International

Thanks, we are happy with the way it came out.

Here are a couple of details on how I secured the refrigerator.

I used 3 framing angles, one secured through the floor, one to secured to the wall (right side of the second picture) and one to secure to the ceiling.




This bracket is a rafter tie screwed to the ceiling, an angle screwed to the top of the refrigerator and they are tied together with a straight strap that I drilled a few hole through for bolts.


Probably less then $10 in parts to secure the whole thing and it doesn't budge.

Re: Mark's 95 Carpenter International

Mark, you've done some clever things and I really like your bus. I like the way you trimmed out the walls while maintaing the original windows. The ceiling looks very nice. That was an ingenious use of patterned rugs for wall coverings.

Thank you for showing one item in particular, and that's the way you set your fridge. I'm dealing with this problem right now. Haven't fully decided what I'm going to do yet, but still contemplating. Regarding the bracket that is bolted through the floor, did you use lag bolts or did you drill through and put a nut/washer on the bottom side?
