Have you considered leaving the cabinets natural (unstained)? I'm thinking of using light wood (birch or maple) and finishing it with a water-based finish that won't darken it. I always thought dark wood closes in a small space.

What are the grey pannels on the roof?
We have thought about just using a little tounge oil or something, but we haven't made up our mind yet.

The panels are the Solar Panels.

Re: Ready but not finished.

Where did you get the solar panels and what brand are they?
What holds them down? Are they warranted for being on a hot metal roof?
You get an 'A' for your conversion from me.
Thanks

They are made by UniSolar, I Googled and found the best deal. They are designed for the roofs and come with a VERY sticky back. Most put them on RVs.

I have a question for you with your shower set up. I don't see a light in there, what are you using for a light source?

I have a light in the middle of the head area, it is bright enough when the shower drap is closed.
