David, the fridge is an ancient unmarked dometic. I am pretty sure it is an RM36.

Thomas..actually, I am in a place where OTHERS are held semi captive..I have a key tho. I am a civilian employee on a Forest Service compound. I am housed here to provide a nightime presence in the area, besides my day job. I am somewhat captive in that I have to spend the night here and I am not allowed visitors. It's a closed compound. No public allowed. Horrible view, eh?

I LIKE the cabinet doors. I painted them temporarily until I can afford new ones. But they are growing on me.

Dennis..yes, the big air space in the closet is a waste of space. So much can be done with it! I am going to do a half door to hide my dresser drawers and make put my TV in the upper space.

Welcome back Gina! Love the lil cabin your creating!


FYI, the RustOleum.com is a cool product. Been doing sample boards just this last week. But I will tell you, don't expect to be able to do it and sleep in the same place for a least 12 hours! The smell is very strong!!!!!! As I said, I have been doing samples to figure out my colors, application, etc. Love the product but the smell until it drys will bowl you over! I have been doing my samples on tiles and taking them out in the garage to dry..... But it lingers! A day with the windows open will help to get rid of some of it. Watch out for the fur baby's!



I don't have a addictive personality, I love to shop! I am not addicted to it! I enjoy it......... But Ikea, now that could become an obsession! Great place to shop for our lil glass trailers.

Nice job Gina! Personally restrict myself to only one trip a year to Ikea.

Cozy Cabin on wheels!

Wow! Love, love, love the cabin look, Gina. Great idea to use the 1/4" cedar.
I'm an Ikea fan, too. I recently spent a day in one, looking around at lots of things for ideas. Also bought a couch we were looking for.
Keep up the good work.
Painting the doors and perhaps putting some type of fabric on the ceiling will keep it bright in there. Too much wood might darken the place too much.

Best,
Fran

More work has been done. I am frantically trying to get all the work done that requires an electrical hook up as I move back into a campground to host in a month. SOOO

I am busy slapping up the cedar while I can use the jig saw without a generator.

Progress so far, sans the trim in a lot of spots. (I can cut trim with a hand saw or my battery operated multi tool) and ceiling/wall paint. A lot of details need fixing! All can be done without power, so I am skipping over those for now.

For the cedar, I still have the area around the bed to do + the back wall of the sofa. There will be paint around the windows and on the fiberglass curve where the walls join ceiling.

Unfortunately, I had the literally destroy the green lamp that the PO installed on the back wall. He didn't ever think of removing it, and he bunged up the threads when he installed the back nuts. I had no room to cut the bolts off and had to cut the base of the lamp to get to them out

Its not perfect, but its MUCH better.

PS. The "Flame" in the door mounted faux fireplace is a Glade battery powered lantern..2 of them. These things are very well done. Its great at nite!

I really like that. Do you think you are adding much weight? Does the cedar smell?

the cedar weighs almost nothing. Its only slightly thicker than veneer. I have counter balanced what is added with deletions of other stuff too. I dumped the heavy 1" thick table and flooring he used to cover it, I dumped the old bed foam and have an air mattress (My preference) and
have gotten rid of a TON of stuff that I have been carrying around but rarely or never use.. Have not weighed it recently, but I suspect it's lighter than when I purchased it.

No, it doesn't have much smell. Since its so thin (I posted a pic of the width somewhere in this thread) it probably doesn't have enough bulk to stink :-P

I am starting to want some of that cedar in my trailer. How dare you inspire me to start a big project, you troublemaker! Lol...

It looks terrific, Gina. What a great job with the tools you had to work with.
Must have taken lots of patience.

Me, too, it would be a great way to redo my cabinet fronts.

good job Gina! I did my Ventura in pine but would have loved cedar! As for the doors I did some up after watching this video
DIY cabinet doors

Here are some pics of my doors, pretty easy if you have a table saw and some clamps. Great thing is they are so much lighter than the particle board ones that were there.

Keep up the good work and pictures
