WOW, thank you for all of the information and the picture of what you would do. Great ideas, I just showed Hubby and he was very impressed with how much you put into this for us.

He & I like the way you designed the bottom and will look to see if it's doable. Theres some trim at the bottom which he may have to work around. And he thinks your idea of how to secure the top is great and will most likely go with a good bit of that. I love the way you have secured a strap around it vs. what we had envisioned

There is trim at the top right below the rim that is rounded and a strap would work great vs trying to use wood.

Will post pics once we get around to securing this bad boy. Right now he has quite a few more things to finish out before we can move in.

No problem. It's a really rough representation of the concept I had.
If you'd like to PM me closer pictures of those areas and dimensions i can model something more specific. I wont turn down the opportunity to refine these skills as i'll be using them soon enough once my bus is back from the mechanic!

Pictures of the Entertainment Center

These are pictures of the entertainment center that I discussed in my last post.
I lost the picture I took of the front somewhere in my PC or on Photobucket. When it shows up I'll post it

This shows some of the recycled wood I saved from our antique wardrobe. I sanded it down (without a mask inside the bus....landed me in the ER a few days later) Note to self...wear mask & do all sanding outside. I applied about 3 coats of poly with light sanding in between may add more layers once I can find the top again LOL

This is the tall narrow cabinet that I measured and saw that the empty space on the wheel well cover was just waiting for me to cut in half & install. I took one half & faced it towards the front of the cabinet & the other half facing the side. This is showing how it is removable & easy to take out.

This shows it completely out & the deep absyss now available to fill up with some very special "stuffs" that we just know has to come with us on our journey

We got the sink & tile installed a few weeks back. We went with the HepVo trap to save space in the island.

The tile we got for free. I responded to some used octangonal tile pieces that I really liked and when we got there they asked if we wanted these too....shoots ya. Did the floor in the crapper room and the whole island and still have about 5 sq ft left over.

The original octangonal ones were way tooooooo much work to reuse.

Sink viewed from end of island. Yes it is installed sideways.

Splurged & bought the sponge & sink junk holder. This shows it opened with the face pulled down
[IMG][/IMG]
Bought the sink at the restore for $5, the faucet was $18 at the Discount Store in town (brand new never used)
[IMG][/IMG]
The left side of the sink towards the drivers side. Installed a fill up valve from the marine side of the business and a air release valve also a marine product
[IMG][/IMG]
This shows the right side of the island.

HEPVO TRAP

This shows the space we saved by going with the HepVo trap

We chose to install then in a less than conventional manner as I want the space by the window to house an herb garden & a few other plants I have chosen to keep (from the dozens & dozens I have already given away)

Reposted the pics...let me know now if you still can't see them.

I'm going to try to take better pictures of our screens installed. Clint did a great job on them & I'm pleased with the results.

For reused small tiles, it looks good.

What is the trim on the edges made from?

Actually these are 12X12 brand new so it was very easy to do a good job. The octagonal ones I originally responded to were used and way tooo much work to clean up and these were free & in the color I wanted so it made it easy to decide.

The coral colored trim is wood. We also got a whole box of white (app 2"X4" for trim) but decided that using the tile we did in a moving vehicle was pressing our luck & the thought of vibration loosening up vertical hanging tiles was very likely so we chose to use wood trim.

Here's a few more pics of our inside screen work install. I had to show more, proud of the job Clint did.

I always check the oops paint section at HD in hopes that I can pick up a good deal on paint and I found this $.50 can of paint (one of those sample paints) that looked a lot like the ceiling on the bus, so for the price I brought it home and unbelievably, it matched the ceiling perfectly, so I painted the acoustics panels and went on down the line & touched up the few scratch spots. Talk about luck.
