Re: Wildcat Lodge

We also built an upper cabinet today which turned out pretty good. To finish out we need to build the doors and cut the soffit to fit.

Re: Wildcat Lodge

Here are some random pictures of our shower door installation and 50A 240V electrical outlet. Our other work is not photo worthy as we are painting cabinet doors and installing corner molding on the panelling.

Re: Wildcat Lodge

The paint has dried and we've installed the cabinet doors and drawer fronts.

Re: Wildcat Lodge

Here are some pics of the back closet and drawer unit in the bathroom. These pictures show the fan installed in the celing and the trim on the bunks.

We used left over insulation in the wheel wells. I believe the stuff over the wheel wells (grey) is 1" foam which is designed to go under a metal roof and the insulation on the flat part (blue) is the same as we used under the flooring which is 1/4" foam designed for metal roof systems.

Re: Wildcat Lodge

I probably missed it, but what did you use for flooring? It looks damn good.

Edit: never mind, I found it. Rosin paper, 1/4" foam, 1/4" plywood, about ten-gajillion 1/8" screws, and glued-on vinyl. How do you like it.

So far we really like it. A couple of days the weather was in the low 20's and the floor kept the chill off and there was no condensation (on the floor). It's not bouncy and really level due to the 1/4" underlayment. We laid the floor down first and then the cabinets/couches and there isn't a noticable "dip" with the weight around the furniture. With just north of 1/2" of stuff covering the metal floor - the trim around the doors, steps and elsewhere has been a snap as a standard metal corner molding covers and attaches with ease. I don't think I would change if I were to do it again.

Re: Wildcat Lodge

We had a design change. Our microwave wouldn't fit on top of our refridgerator, so we built this upper cabinet to house the microwave. We'll paint it like the rest and put some doors on. There are two plugs next to the fridge, one on the inverter and one just on shore power which can be reached from the cabinet over the fridge.
