Got some more work done these last few days, got the counter top installed and installed the sink that our neighbor gave us last year that was just laying in the back yard. was going to use it as a shop sink, but this is a much better home for it.
I have never installed a sink in a new counter top, so this was a new challenge. my lady like how it came out,so it's all good.
Got a little more work done this week, made some cool over the sink cabinets and framed in the microwave.
View looking back, the red lid, is covering the hole where the shower drain will be. we are installing a 60"x 30" shower base that we will frame into a complete bathroom. with the toilet mounted on the shower base floor.
yep, the trick will be plumbing the toilet. we use to have a 32 foot older model winnie. the best thing it had was a full size shower. I wanted a full shower and fully plumbed bathroom, but did not want it to take up the rest of the small area left. should have just enough space behind the drivers seat for a small recliner or swivel captains chair.
well it was not a fun job, but the sink and shower drains pipes are installed. now to make a holding tank. I did not glue the home made trap on yet as I still have to run the base and drain pipe for the Toilet. it's going to be mounted on the shower base,and the whole thing will be closed in for a complete bathroom.
have not gotten to much done,but did get some carpet laid down
Well things are not going real fast on the Wren Roaster, have learned a few things and changed a few things. Even with the expensive Solar battery, it would not keep the Fridge going all night with out draining the Battery. So That said I decided to remove the Solar stuff and the Inverter. I still have the RV power panel installed and a 3000 watt genset.
We have a portable A/C unit and it pulled more power then the inverter could handle, but worked fine on the A/C of the generator. this we found out during last years Hurricane when the Power was out. Our house did fine but Power was out in the Area for 3 days. so it was nice to retreat to the Bus and cool off and relax on the bed and watch a DVD on the T.V. we had in there.
Anyway I decided to lay down some carpet last night, never done that before but it did not come out to bad. still need to finish off the front.
well due to things called Life we never finished Converting the Wrenn Roaster. This was pretty much due to the extra tires the guy gave us with it turned out to be all bad.
So the Wrenn Roaster needs Tires. I did drive it around the yard some the other day,but when I opened the hood I found a rat or squirrel had gotten under the hood and chewed up a heater hose and a radiator hose. so I have to replace those now. on a good Note with a short charge from the Solar battery charger it started right up.
Sadly with the heavy rains here in Florida,we have found that the roof is leaking and messed up the carpet we had put down. anyway my Wife has decided that we need to sell it now. and well since she is the one that paid for the Bus, she has the Final say so.
Well the Wrenn Roaster is going up for sale. here are some pics of how it looks today. going to list in on C.L. for $4,500. It's a Ford Super duty, it runs good but needs Tires and the roof sealed where the rear a/c hangs from. started installing the shower base and toilet but never finished it. also have the r.v. 12 volt power converter and battery charger installed, queen size bed,fridge and microwave with overhead storage.
