Thanks all. Been a very long haul... And now, very much still to do.

About window coverings: frankly, we're still investigating our options. Our biggest challenge is the sweeping windshield. I'd like to find a consistent solution for all windows.

Yes, that is cork flooring. As anyone my age can tell you, this product is durable, comfortable and great looking. That said, we plan to offer three flooring options: cork, Marmoleum and FLOR carpet tiles.

Great Camper:n Now the road testing & time will tell if all is well. Parkliner found that time and road travel made them correct areas to get the correct product. I love it the Nest but it is a year to late for us.

I am assuming that you were not quite done. The attached picture of the road side seems to be missing something. will this be cupboards, or a desk, or...
Also, what I assume to be closet is visible. Good size for one anyway.

Congratulations Robert to you and all the team involved.
It looks very contemporary and minimal, just right. Users can tailor and customize as needed....

Look forward to meet out there in the future, my reno is scheduled for this year (again!) and I find it so interesting I have chosen many solutions like the one you ended up using here ( panel box, shower head, clean look...)

I went for a plain counter, with on the counter induction cook top, and many other differences, in any case, congratulation again for your accomplishment, you have been / continue to be an inspiration.

As Ken C. rightfully points out, the area under the 23" deep x 50" wide countertop is space for two folding chairs, which store inside the closet to the right while in transit.

Curious to learn more about those chairs, as they provide the primary sitting spot in the trailer. Wondering how comfortable they might be for an afternoon indoors during inclement weather...

Can't wait to learn more!

Took the Nest into the studio for some professional photographs of the interior for our marketing and website.

Until we get all of the "proper" photographs completed, we've uploaded a new temporary landing page to our website.

www.nestcaravans.com

Included on this page is a downloadable "flyer" that provides some details and specifications, for those that have the interest...

Very nice Robert. What is that little square display next to the Trimetic unit? Also what about a couple of flip up stooge tables at the end of the cabinets (stove and sink) over the bed to allow the option for temporary additional counter space.

That display is the ALDE hydronic heater control and thermostat.

"Wings" for both counters have already been designed and built.

That is something the owner can certainly do, there is a large counter space to fill with one.

About a microwave option... Yes. We have built in a 110VAC receptacle below the refrigerator for this very purpose. The drawers under the fridge get re-positioned and the microwave is inserted just below the counter.
