It’s hard to give specific pics on our progress, I would need more of a wider angle lens so lemme dor a 3 panel panorama then talk a little about what your see.
( u could cut-n-paste but whatever… )
So from left to right, the angled frig compartment front panels are finished and will go in today. with the frig in we’ll be able to map out the odd shaped cabinet insides. With the frig in there at an angle, everything else will have angles to take advantage of as much inside storage as possible.
Middle pic shows the galley cabinet I laminated the galley sidewall with the same off white wall material. The washer/drier will get it’s power outlet then it will be installed in the area lined on the floor in green tape.
The right panel shows the new Atwood furnace in place under where the new sofa/bunk will be. The galley cabinet side panel was vacuum formed, this is the pattern. With that panel in you will then be able to see the galley ready for it’s countertop.
Lets talk a minute about this furnace and how to install it. This is an Atwood “Hydraflame” 24,000 btu LP furnace available nationwide. We will use the digital thermostat. OK, not being able to put this thing in the original location… the washer/drier is there now, we are moving the furnace under the sofa/bunk. This sofa will be lifted @ 1 1/2″ to allow for the furnace install. The sofa was notoriously low anyway.. I have no idea what the measurements were they were working with in the beginning but that sofa if just too low…. OK, location determined, we scrape off all the foam stuck to the inside of the plastic panel Now, pull out your highschool geometry formulas and draw out the 17 x 7.5″ rectangle where the furnace will go. Cut from the inside…. ask me why… on the otherhand don’t…. The sheet is for my knees! Now… take a swig and cut that hole out… yes, take whatever empliment of destruction you choose and cut a hole in the side of your coach! So you say wait… my original furnace only had 2 small holes in the body… why use this furbnace that needs this inspection cover? OK, fair question but remember you need to service your furnace every year… here in Florida I haven’t turned mine on in 15 years! So now it’s cold…. should I turn it on? Heck now!!!! You need to have it serviced so now it’s “Diver Down” under that galley counter, remove the seat and come up with some phrases even our political race would think vulgar…. sorry, I promise no politics….. Cut that hole and slam that furnace in…… Well alrighty then… now go inside and cut the sidewall panels to fit Hey and don’t forget the washer bib…. today you will see some cool stuff here…. stay tuned….
A morning full moonset…. it’s going to be a good day. Another view of the shop…. look at the pile of fun waiting
See ya tomorrow…
