This weekend i plan on finishing the wiring and moving on to plumbing. I found an amazing design for a self composting toilet and against suggestions ill put in a shower. Things ive learned so far , is dont put down a vinyl fake wood floor in the winter. It expands and contracts horribly.

Last but not least a little side note on the kitchen counter, it has 100 years in it. It has a penny from every year since 1917-2017 all are face up unless it was a year someone close i knew died. The cherry trim is rough cut lumber i got out of a 100+ old barn and planed. After making it i googled " pennies worth the most" and it came up with a 1943 copper penny worth close to 100,000 and i damn near crapped myself. Seems they made them out of steel that year, only a few test stamps where made of copper. Luckily i did some research before destroying the counter top. A lot of steel pennies where copper plated to make fakes to try to sell to coin dealers. I dropped a magnet on the counter top and sure enough it went straight for the 1943 penny.

I hate to keep adding more but i keep thinking of things i should have posted. The upholstery shop gave me a quote for around 500 to do the cushions for the couch/bed area with me supplying the foam from my old pop up. I simply got on amazon and bought a futon mattress cover for 50 bucks!! I plan on taking both of the foam mattresses and doubling them. It will equal out to an 8 inch mattress topper , mega comfort. I also ordered some cheap 12 volt led strips while i was at it , so cool lighting.


The cabinets that dont have doors in the pics i provided are getting curtains. I plan on measuring and hemming them this weekend as well with hemming tape. Then ill find someone with a sowing machine, straight stitch shouldn't take an hour.

Then last , last , last but not least i gotta thank roach for doing the research and giving me this floor plan layout.

Great work!

You've done an amazing job! I'm going to send you a PM because I've got a 2005 Mid-Bus and I've got some questions.
