Driver's seat

Re: Bench and dinette dimensions

You can squish out the water from foam by placing between two sheets of plywood and driving over them with the car. Never tried it, but apparently its what guys who get water into their snowmobile...

Re: Canadian Skoolie Project

Of course I put in a trap. To keep under the sink area clean, the trap is under the shelf, in the open area where the furnace is. Just above the floor level. Everything fits like a glove.

Re: Canadian Skoolie Project

We got the carpet in the back room, complete with proper underlay. It looks good and is comfortable to walk on. I found a tent sale at a local furniture retailer and picked up a brand new mattress...
