I don't think this is going to help us, with the east-west bed.... I had thought that I could use the rear door for nighttime sorties, but upon further reflection, I'm not sure that's practical.
In any event, I'm interested in what y'all think of it. What haven't I thought of?
If you have not yet built, here are my thoughts:
I would reconsider dedicating nearly 10% of your floor-space to a bathroom - a place where you spend less than 2% of your time. There are a ton of creative ways to have both a shower and a composting toilet that take up only the space the hardware for these require.
I'd also investigate the idea of a bed that can be suspended from the ceiling - the advantage being that you can use the space below for living during the day without having to sleep on a jigsaw puzzles of cushions that you must assemble every day - it simply hoists out of the way. At least, that's what I'll be doing with my shorty
Finally, for you kitchen I would absolutely investigate a chest fridge instead of an upright - it just seems to have so many advantages to it an again, it frees up space for other stuff and I would have stove that is mounted lower than the counter or even a hot-plate cook-top (induction, of course). Also, although 36" is standard counter height, if you are short (like me) and you enjoy cooking, consider lowering that to a height that makes more sense for you.
Them's my 2 cents worth. If you've already built, I hope you are enjoying the open roads in your rig.
