how doing it
I have a program called
Microsoft Picture it! Publishing. Came with my computer
I can tell it to get a color in the picture then change it's color so it looks like a drawing. Or trace around an area then give it a color. easy once you figure out the commands.
I've been doing a kids book using this, but desided to get it drawn professionally. I think most picture publishing programs do this.

Good Ideas
Is that a closet or chair/storage space beside the stove top?

Legacy Posts 11-25-2002 09:38 PM

Surfside mods
if there is room, it will be a closet. it's kind of tight, but it will just be for my dance clothes. and that is the only place I can find to put one. everything else will be in drawers under the bed. frig under the stove and heater under the sink, if I keep it, the heater not the sink.
Chairs?? I have to have chairs!! maybe in the car? I'm sure there will be adjustments as I work on it. triming down the stuff I take will be the big challenge.

Think twice about putting the range in an unvented corner, unless you have a screen door and maybe some sort of power exhaust vent. Or does your front window open? On my Scamp, that whole double decker bunk area is somewhat dead, ventwise.

There are marine vents intended for horizontal deck use that may or may not be suitable for vertical use. Some have solar.

The window opens. there are actually two. one for the bath and one for the stove. each work independent of the other. and If I'm remembering wrong, I'll put one in that will. My Tom said why do you need a stove anyway, you always cook outside, but I do use it a little, he just doen't know it. :) Thanks for the caution warning.

Cooking depends on the weather. I'm currently living in 40s F, so cooking heat, esp morning coffee, is welcome. Yea, verily, it is different in Summer!

outside of Buttercup when I got her
if anyone needs any silicone, I appear to have extra.

it's this way on every window or opening of any kind.

inside Buttercup
it's obvious why I'm changing the floor. the rest is not so apparent, except the nice out of date fabric.

inside buttercup
Thanks for sharing the interior of buttercup with us.....:thumb .
Did you change your mind about your rehab layout? Why did you take the other one down?
Darn, now I can't remember what it looked like and it is bugging me......put it back up, pretty please, so I can :bed tonight.

Thanks Jana,
Comments on your floorplan first...while I remember them :chin ha ha.

I really like the second one best.....with the bathroom door at an angle and you have that little closet to the left of it, plus it puts your sink and stove in close proximity....I like it.:cblob

Your current plan doesn't show a closet door, could you maybe design the closet in that front left corner with a door leading from your bathroom? It would be a larger closet than #2 and still be full length.

Convertable only warning is that with the wind pressure on the leading surface, won't you be very susceptable to leakage from wind pressure on the road? Plus, it will be awfully high when it tips out, or have you been practicing cooking on stilts?

Now, I wasn't really gettin on ya about nuttin (referring to a comment on another thread), but I'm really glad :banana you put it back up so I won't loose any sleep, and lord knows, I need all the beauty sleep I can get.:zz

Love Ya,

>>Now, I wasn't really gettin on ya about nuttin (referring to a comment on another thread),<<:conf You weren't ?? :huh Well there you go!! You should know I like talking what if on trailers. I like arguing a point or getting opinions I can think about. :)

I have to explain this kitchen outside part. I was going to put it on rollers, and roll it out. not swing it out. it's one of those possibles that I go to sleep with but usually just keeps me awake. I've made one before, but had a ramp and a larger door and never hooked it up inside. I would like this one hooked up inside part of the time. maybe a quick connect like Don (Pinecone) showed me once with his Buddy heater. The main reason is to create more sleeping space inside for certain times. right now it's not coming together, so probably won't. AND there is no closet in the second one. I could make curtains of clothes. hang them every where. as long as they weren't in my face when I slept. :lol like a gypsy caravan/trailer with the flowing fabrics everywhere.

rollin kitchen
Hey, that sounds like a great idea. But, like you said, the door needs to be a nice size to be able to roll it out without a great deal of trouble. I like the idea of cooking outside, but don't want to carry along one of the Colemans. I always wash dishes outside, so I could do without the sink inside.
