Re: The Brown Crown

Thanks papabear!

I know I did this posting "back asswards" in terms of posting older pics and info after the newer ones, but if it helps to inspire other's like you guy's have me, then so be it

Here is how the floorplan ended up (of course it was about my 7th or 8th plan )

Re: The Brown Crown

If I was going to build a flat nose it would be a Crown!

I like your layout, everything flows in a natural order and it looks like it would be easy to live in. I also like the use of the carpet on the ceiling and the other odd places, it gives it a cozy look.

Take care,
Den

Re: The Brown Crown

Worked on placing some trim in the bedroom area recently. The round conturs of the Crown create some problems with making things look finished and lined up. So I took some 1x4's and wrapped them in carpet that matches the celing and then formed some pieces to make the transition between the walls and the roof line look more finished. Got the right side done, but still need to finish the left. The first picture shows both sides of the rear interior walls. Slowly but surely, things are getting better.

I saved the rear seat cushion as a headboard... it's the only thing left inside from my skoolie's days transporting kids Still got some window trim to finish back there too, but that is for another weekend and the next pay day for the materials

Re: The Brown Crown

I really like the carpet. Nice color, looks warm. Keep sending the pics I love em.

What are you keeping the carpet up with. Also what size is your shower. I want to have as small a bathroom as possible, but still be able to take a shower.

Re: The Brown Crown

Forget about answering the carpet question. I looked back at some old posts and you had already given the info.

Re: The Brown Crown

Love that roof carpet. I really toyed with that idea on this conversion. I think I will do it on the next one after seeing and reading about it. Love it.

Thanks bike...it really does go on easy and not too expensive either...you can get a good quality grade at Home Depot for not too much...the whole ceiling was about $100. It helps with the insullation too because the roof tends to get pretty hot in the summer.

Jackie...I used a 30 inch shower pan...I know space can be a problem, but I also wanted to be able to shower and enjoy it

Re: The Brown Crown

Finally got around to putting paneling around the refrigerator enclosure this weekend. Certainly not my best work so don't look too close...at least the fridge will hide my mistakes
