Tony, You got to post some pic!

Good to hear it worked for you. After our vacation I though about how to redirect the air vent on the side where I have the door, it's on my to do list. For now I am going to keep ours as a door. For us, it's the perfect space for shose and extra drinks (soda).

The newer version of this floorplan has an exterior access door for the space. I like the drawer idea better!

Yah, I will try and post some in the next few days. I re-routed the vent by shortening its length and popping it out a few inches from the intake grate, which by the way, is not connected to anything, just open air. The re-route gave me plenty of room for the deep drawer, and better air flow with the new vent placement. Thanks again for that one!

So I finally got around to taking some pics of storage ideas I stole from other FR Members. The first pic is of the under couch storage i stole from MOD Guy, on the left, I made the drawer the length of the couch and was able to do this by redirecting the fernace duct and putting it next to the inlet vent. This also shortened the duct making it more effeicient. I would have made the drawer wider, but as it sits, the side cleares the fernace by 3/4". The second pic is of a similar wide drawer. The third pic is of both drawers closed. The last pic is from another members idea of storage behind the shower access panel, he put a cabinet door on it, I whent a cheaper route and make canned goods storage. I make an enclosed box that is held in by 4 screws. I stained it and secured dowels to hold the goods from falling over.

For just DW, myself and one Labrador, we have so much storage we don't know what to do with it! There's space under the QS bed, under both the dinette sofas and the jacknife sofa that is currently not very accessible, but we don't need it.
