Thumbs up

I use the long paint stirrers ( 5 gallon bucket size) to hold up my emergency windows for now. If I should decide to continue to go that route then I will probably cut them down a tad.

I like your dish holder. Do I really ask for binning strips when I go to the store?

So glad to see you going forward with your changes, keeping busy I found really does help. The feelings don't really go away but thinking about other things put you in a different place if only for awhile.

Hang in there girl, I'm proud of you.

Baby binning strips (292-WH-60) (no adhesive - I glue them on with PL375) are what I used. The 5 gallon stir sticks fit very nicely. You get them from Outwater. They have a $25 minimum order. I used them in the drawers posted earlier in this thread. I wonder where else I will use them at.

I need to order Outwater's Anti-Rattle Feather Track (R101-603-BR) for the laundry bins (dirties) and the cabinetry I have yet to build over the daybed.

Outwater Plastics has a great "toy" catalog. Full of some nifty stuff. Also has the best selection of Rev-a-shelf products in one place.

Decided to add a row of binning strips to the bottom of the frame/step so I have two rows of dividers (stir sticks). Just kept looking at it and thinking about bouncing down the road. Got the binning strip in the other two cabinets so I got all three cabinet above the sink side all "binned". Next project is to build the swing out shelves. Other than that, haven't done anything on the bus. Gotta go pick up the movies I rented and buy a cheap roller shade to destroy (got an idea).

It's currently 8:30AM and the temp outside is 18F. It got down to 17F last night (not long after midnight). It's been colder. The Ceramica tile floor is cold but not as cold as a real ceramic tile floor. I don't know if the OSB that is under it has anything to do with it. The floor is warm enough that I can walk around in socks but a little too cool to be walking around barefoot for any length of time. And it's not from keep the interior of the bus too warm. For overnight, I turn the LP heat off and the electric heaters down low enough to just things from freezing inside.

BBBBRRRRRRR!!!!!!

What was the temp inside this morning Lorna? You have a couple of electric heaters & the gas fireplace right? I remember you talking about having to pay extra for your electric when you go over a certain limit so I can see turning everything down as low as you can.


Where the hell do we have to go to have warmer weather in the winter.....South America?

Cube is supposed to be fairly warm in the winter. Then again, FL is supposed to be but it ain't so.

I would estimate the interior of the bus was about 65-70F. Below that and I am normally cold. Sometimes above that I am cold. Right now (a bit after 10PM) it is 23 outside and the thermometer on the air conditioner says it's 65F inside. It feels a little cooler than it was this morning. I just got home so the place has been empty all day. Just electric heaters on. I need to get an indoor thermometer. I need to get an outdoor thermometer. I do lower the interior temp at night. For starters, I sleep better. I also have a heated mattress pad so it's silly to keep the bus real warm when my bed is plenty warm.

Most definitely my last winter of ice and snow.

It's been unusually warm here to but, everything is relative. It's only -2 this morning. On the bright side "mud" season is almost here.

I left Indy after the blizzard of 78. Been mostly in central FL since. It hasn't been 80s everyday, some nights dropped near 30. That's cold for local plants and transplants.
