Ok...I have had absolutely no luck finding 55 gallon plastic food grade drums. I called everywhere I could think of that would use them. On the bright side, post and kelloggs as well as ralston cereal are all here, so I think I might be able to find something there.
Anywho...I thought of an idea that incorporated an eating area and entertainment center today, so I had to draw it out and build it while it was fresh in my mind. Whilst on the bus I decided to do some cleaning so I could upload some pictures for all of you. I will post a few on here and a link to google picasa to view the rest of them, since I don't have much luck showing more than 2 pictures on here.
This is the unit I built today, I used 2.5 2x4's, a scrap piece of osb, and a $1.69 piece of scrap laminate countertop. It not only works well as a bar to dine at, it allows seating for 2 more people onboard Victoria.
I got this light fixture for $8 at menards because it was their last one, and an unnoticeable cosmetic weld had come undone. I wish they had two, because I wanted to use them on either side of the bed. I couldn't pass on the deal, but I have no idea where to put this...any ideas?
Looking forward in the living room. I love that couch, it's so comfortable.
Here is the laminate wood floor that I will use in the kitchen area, a temporary minifridge, and the microwave I plan on using...it looks like a 2x4 snuck its way into the picture as well.
This is the only space around the bed, so I am not sure if I'll be able to keep things that way...it's a bit of a squeeze, any ideas?
Ok...here is a link for the rest of the pics:
PS: I think I will not keep the tub in the bus, and instead make the living room a bit smaller (it will be the size you see in the pics) use a shower, and make the bedroom a lot bigger. What do you all think?
