the new (and hopefully final) layout

Ive rearranged 10x and found this works the best. I cannot sleep under the bunk, too tight a space. Funny, i liked it when i was camping but i guess it doesn't pass the f/t test. So i pulled out the big bed and fiddled with the bunk layout. It has to hold appliances, toiletries, a mini office, and clothes so it had to be exact. I think this is working, and i have extra room in behind the kitchen stuff. I am missing a microwave so will put a little one on top or underneath the toaster oven. (thats if the curves will allow me to) The laptop only opens back or fwd a bit, not straight up. its OK though. i did buy rail sliders for it but decided it was good enough. The chair is an alley find. It works better that the old one b/c it is a children's chair and b/c it is smaller now i can open the fridge most of the way. I'm short so its perfect for me.

Oh, what a cheerful space!

Just out of curiosity, what sort of work do you do that enables you to take the show on the road?

I think that'll work, what if you have to move.

Ikea sells a bed skirt that is a wrap a round, no cover. i just cut it to size b/c like to hide the storage. I drilled eye loops into each end of the fiberglass seat under the window to tie it to.

Cyndi you certainly have created a cozy and comfortable space to call home, important when life is in transition. You have a good 'eye' for color and cozy! Hope this final arrangement works for you.......

Wow! It looks like a cozy but very usable living space. I am truly impressed.

Looks great. If I was staying in a garage, I would get some cheap hawaii/ waterfall/ forest posters, put them on the walls of the garage, open the drapes and dream!

I've thought many times over as to how nice it would be to become a full time camper, but I have way to much "stuff" that I couldn't part with and that creates a big problem. I heard an old friend of mine tell me one day, "Don't let your treasures become your burden" and that is oh so true. Some day I will have my regrets, I'm sure because I love my Scamp 16 SD and love to travel, but that hasn't happened yet.
