More Kitchen

By |June 20th, 2016|BUILD, INTERIOR BUILD|0 Comments

Working on the kitchen in mini steps whenever I take a bit time off my commercial project.

Below is the finished door of the corner cabinet. Both shelves can be turned and accessed from the outside.

The edge trim of the bench top is not yet finished. I have to cut 5 mm off the edge at the cook top.

The images below show the finished drawers.

Another step was the first door of the high cabinet on the left. I use Blum hinges which can be adjusted to the desired spring load to hold the door at any position and with a […]

Bed Slide-out

By |June 8th, 2016|BODY BUILD, BUILD|0 Comments

Finally,
the last slide-out is in .. took 6 months since I am back from QLD. Time flies when you are busy.

I had the box and the opening prepared and yesterday my young mate came by to help me to lift it in.
It is not really heavy but a bit awkward with the long bed base. Would not trust any of my older mates
to handle it, so had to wait for the young bloke, however he has a sore wrist right now and I have torn
a ligament in the left elbow at the gym. Nevertheless we managed to get it […]

Transition Blinds

By |June 8th, 2016|INTERIOR BUILD|0 Comments

I ordered a sample blind from Turkey as a trial because here in Australia the prices are just over the top.
Silver/grey fabric, which actually is the only usable component, and beige top rail and bottom piece.  Super heavy duty motor and 45mm diameter top rail .. I mean this is suitable for a garage door but not just for a small blind ..

I expected the motor to be way to heavy and big, but since my motor I had from Hong Kong was really tiny I was not sure if it was up to the task, so I ordered […]

Kitchen Bench And Doors

By |June 8th, 2016|BUILD, INTERIOR BUILD|0 Comments

A couple of weeks ago I picked up the last batch of panels. To be exact on the 28th of July.

Kitchen bench and doors, CNC cut as per DXF files and a couple more. one for the work area desk and cabinet, the bathroom cabinet and another 10mm panel for the solar panel mounts.

I also received the trim for all the panels and can now finish the kitchen. The priority is to finish the last slide-out to get to lock up, but apart from that I will not be able to do much on the van until my commercial project […]

Interior Paint And Lighting

By |June 8th, 2016|INTERIOR BUILD|0 Comments

This is already a few weeks old and I have done a bit more on the lighting since then, however this should give an idea about some of the interior finish. I have painted my work area and the bathroom with a suede paint. It is applied with a brush. It is a bit of an old fashion finish; was popular a few years back, however I had some paint left from the house I have done some years ago and we still like the effect. The colours were right and the finish is nice so I decided to […]
