Here It Is

This morning Kathy and I went to a craft show. We walked around and didn't buy much. I watched my sisters table so she could take a break and then walk around.

We went to lunch at a near by Mexican restaurant and enjoy the food. We haven't spent much time together since they returned for the winter so it was nice to sit and catch up.

We then stopped to visit Barb since she still doesn't get out to much because of her foot surgery. Next week she will start alternating from boot to no boot until her foot feels good enough to go with out the boot at all.

Then I came home and set up the camper so I could take some pictures. Boy the skeeters are bad.

You can see I now have room for a chair. One more thing needs to be done and that is to make a shelf for over the right wheel well so I can put the last drawer on it and not have it roll off. You can see the small drawer behind the chair

Even the potty got a new outfit and the container on top is a large butter container that I crocheted a cover for holds TP
I had this wooden box in the shed for years and finally found a use for it. I needed something to hold extra TP, plastic bags and 2 small heaters, it fit in this space perfectly and left room for water jugs




these little mittens where made by my friend Lucy who does some really beautiful wood working . They are little bird houses.

As you can see now that the risers were added I was able to put the drawers under the bed. When the drawers were in the back I really couldn't get to the bottom one as I only had enough room to get my hand in and try to find things as it faced the bed and the leg was in the way, of course I wouldn't have been able to open it at all turned the other way because of the wheel well.I still have a little more room to put other supplies over the drawers
.
Tomorrow I'll take measurements and ask my neighbor to cut the wood for me. I think I'll make the legs out of PVC pipe.

Good Night All

      Thank you, it is a tight space so It needed to give me more comfort for longer stays.

  7. I think you have hit on the best use of space, and the easiest way to travel. I like your setup better than pulling a trailer.

    1. Hi Gypsy,

      I sure hope I did. I really don't want to pull anything, but if this doesn't work then I guess a trailer it is.

  10. Hi JMD,

    I love going to craft shows to see what new things folks come up with and to figure out if I could do them too, usually the answer is NO haha
