KOH prep. Need a fridge and stove.

Had to cut a big ol hole in the side for the LP fridge ventilation.


got that all installed, had to remove the lower window for upper ventilation (not installed yet)


free fridge, cooktop and countertop. Dunno if I'll put a drawer under the stove, or just box it out for a small storage compartment. still need to add a backsplash and caulk everything.



Next on the list install furnace, run lp lines, mount tanks. Then get sink finished, add fresh and greywater tanks and heat exchanger.

Got the doghouse built for the furnace.


Fitted the backsplash then dad went nuts and trimmed it all out!

Couldn't find an acceptable (to me) solution to mounting the LP tanks so I picked up a couple forklift straps and we hacked into them sat. Had to add some structure to mount them, as well as support the bottle and make them lockable.



dunno why the left tank looks like its sitting all funky compared to the right one. Its all square and true. Will have to look into that as its buggin the shit outtah me.


Then moved on to some bed rails to keep our sober butts from falling outtah the dang bunk.

Was little chilly this weekend but got a lot done.
Stove is cooking and fridge is cooling! Laid in all the gas lines. Everything but the furnace is up and running. Need a new thermostat and to tap some power for it somewhere.

Busy week.
Got the heat exchanger mounted, fresh and grey water tanks installed, thermostat and furnace are up and running, and built a fuel/oil/coolant/firewood holder out back.

Looks like you put the dimple dies to work! Nice addition. What is the heat exchanger used for?

Had those dies for like 3 years and have never used em! Finally had a good project for them!

Heat exchanger for hot water.

Getting close to done now. Need to tie into the coolant system and then hot water will be complete. Need to add a fill line to the freshwater tank and wire the pump and we'll have water to the sink and shower! Greywater system is complete.

Looking good. So did you build the heat exchanger? Cool idea.

I didn't

Buddy of mine was in the mobile steam cleaning industry for quite a few years. This was an exchanger he designed for his employer. The freshwater is pumped through a coil of finned copper tubing. Hot engine coolant is pumped through/fills the entire "waterpig" .

He's confident it will work great for what we are doing.

Cool, sounds like awesome idea. You could even add a bung and a element for electrical heating.

Crunch time! Below freezing, fresh powder and 30mph winds today so we decided to not finish up the plumbing but rather prep the bikes and make sure that I can get 3 in here somehow. Looks like we're good to go!
Weather forecast looks promising tomorrow so hopefully we can put the finishing touches on.

BUSY freaking weekend. I'm calling it DONE for now. No time left, heading for CA on Friday. Everything is buttoned up, bikes and gear and food and beer are loaded. Its stuffed to the gills.

Dad built some nice stuff to put the finishing touches on....

helmet hooks.




A box to protect all the coolant/ac/water lines and the rear heater, with some extra bonus storage.



Picked up this BBQ awhile back. We've been using it camping for a few years. It came off a some sort of boat and KICKS ass. So much heat, doesn't care about wind, just cooks like a good grill should
