This is another view showing the wardrobe better.

The silver bubble wrap is super thick and is what they wrap kayaks in for delivery. I was in at my local boat shop getting some more epoxy and was given it

The bubble wrap looks too short but there will be a nice wooden floor installed that will join up nicely with it.

The bottom compartment below the kitchen will be a hanging locker. I will put in the pipe for the hangers to hang on after the last coat of paint. I have put brackets for a shelf in there in case we ever change our minds.

Oh yes, Doors. I have not forgotten about the wardrobe doors. Wood is precut in the shop waiting patiently. They will be done after some wiring and the furnace.

cheers

Very nice.
I did much the same with the bed but kept a stubby kitchen. I'm thinking you have a better idea tossing the kitchen and using the space for floor to ceiling cupboards.

Thankyou both for the compliments. I got the first coat of green on yesterday and will get another on tomorrow. Should be able to get the shelf over the window in next week along with the wiring for 12V sockets and LED lights. We have a date with friends in Jasper for the September long weekend so a bit of pressure will spur me along.

Next issue is the existing wardrobe. I will not be able to open the door with the wider bed.

So I cut the bottom off of the door and moved up the fiberglass on the inside. I still need to fill in the big square hole with some fiberglass that I saved from the kitchen.

The ensolite is missing from the back of the wardrobe because I needed it to patch the other side of the trailer. I will use the same silver bubble wrap that I used in the new wardrobe to cover the mess once I have run some wires for a porch light and a small red LED for using the portapotti at night.

The new big shelf worked out really well. Still have to have it out one more time to epoxy the LED strip to the underside. I have found that the glue that is on the led strips sometimes fails in the heat so I epoxy them.

I filled in the extra bit of fiberglass to complete the modification on the original wardrobe. I think I will paint it to make the seams invisible. The bed rails have been temporarily installed. They will be painted and reinstalled soon.

The shelf over the bed is done with a light installed.

Door is finished. I decided to paint the doors a cream colour to lighten up the inside.

My son ( and his grandfather) made this really nice pocket by the front door. Nice for little stuff that you don't want to have to go inside for like sunglasses.

Well I made some great progress today.

The inside of the original wardrobe is now finished. All the wires for lights are hidden behind the new silver bubblewrap at the back of the closet and the shelves have bee primed, painted and reinstalled.

All the electrics are done for all of the lights and power outlets.

The bed size has worked out well. I gained 19" of width. I don't think I will have to remove the lower part of the original wardrobe for extra foot room.

Supper is ready so I must go.

Cheers and thanks for looking.

I will get some more pictures this weekend for sure. Am I correct that you got a fixer-upper last week?

More pics... The small black box up high on the left of the doorway has 2 switches. One for the porch light and the other powers a small red LED that illuminates the portapotty that we leave in the doorway at night. It is not very bright but it beats doing it by feel and it doesn't wake up any body else.

The exterior shot shows we are in need of a respray ( next year along with new cushions) and it also shows our 4 corner jacks that remove for transport. Quite cheap when on sale at princess auto and very sturdy.

By cutting up the original wardrobe door, we can open it easily with the bed made.
