Gina,nice to hear from you.Thanks for the complement. As I mentioned,we still have some finishing touches to do. We decided to go this route rather than a roof mounted one for a couple of reasons. As you must know by now, the roof only has 2x2 supports so we didn,t want much weight
up there. Plus it saved me having to relocate the fantastic fan which was prewired at the vent. It also reduces wind drag. Another factor was the price tag, $ 100 vs $1400. I did the cabinetry work but had an electrician do the electrical
( over my head ). As you indicated, cutting the top of the closet off opens the cabin up even more. We use the shelf for a small lamp at night and it comes in handy for putting watches & glasses 0n before bedtime. Linda loves it.
I had the door cut off at the top. The line is almost invisible. But because of the scuff marks on the door,we will refinish the door face eventually. About the door swing, I deliberately changed the way the door opens as it made more sense to have it open towards the kitchen rather than needing 180 degree swing to get inside. I did the same to the door under the sink. It just makes easier access to both. By the way talking about cupboards we found a solution to the awkward way of opening the upper cabinets. I installed spring loaded piston style hinges. I noticed that Escape
trailers have the same system,at least the one online had it. They,re worth their weight
in gold. Ask the wife lol.
Sorry the washroom is the last thing Linda would give up lol. Not sure What you mean by the rock guard. I see from your pics that you have the same one we do over the front window. By the way I installed new 1 in mini blinds in off white. What a difference that made in the brightness in the cabin.I also put a small one on the washroom window as well as a matching valance too. Next year we will take more pics for you to see. Right now Stubby is wrapped up for our northern winter. Can,t wait to unwrap. Thanks again for the response to our post. So good to hear from you. Keep in touch..Good luck with the rest of your renos too. Please post or send pics. Dennis
