The other side of the dinette had the door front that opened on the side and was all open space. We could have made a drawer to go about 2/3 of the way to the wall but we found a drawer at an RV surplus that was $5 and matched the drawer on the other side, so we bought that. For the area behind the drawer, I found a bin that fits perfectly. We also installed a piano hinge on the plywood top of the dinette so all we have to do is lift it up and it doesn't fall off.

Impossible, it would take weeks, if not months to find them all.

Finished up the install of my hard-wired Progressive Industries EMS. My help consisted of:
1) running the wire for the monitor so that it is part of my control panel (behind a cabinet, drawers, and through an access space)
2) screwed in 4 screws that my father-in-laws bifocals made difficult. So- I can totally claim I installed it!

We measured and be planned for the new pin box bike rack.

And lastly, measured the screen door to buy a custom shoe rack.

OK, I'm curious about the screen door shoe rack. Hurry up and get it made so you can take a pic.

To attach it to the door, did you use pop rivets?

They're saying, "We will be sending you a snap screw to screw in to the solid metal bar at either end."

It's a full-timing family that makes them. Seems like it could be good.

Heh, I don't get credit (except for my poorly worded post that made it sounds like something I made- I'm buying this! ).

Added a screen room. Already had the deck and the table/chairs. Was so nice to sit outside and eat dinner and not get attacked by mosquitoes.

The lattice work laying in front is my project for next weekend.

I showed the pic of the screen door shoe storage to the BOSS and she said no go.

I liked it.

And again, I wear the pants in this family.

I guess.

You just don't wear the ones with the authority in them.

BTW, she's right!

Clearly you wear the pants in the family, but she wears the shoes!

We want to do something to try and tame the shoe mess right inside of the door. Sadly- I'm the worst offender.

I think it looks a little hokey but if it helps cleanup the floor- I'm willing to trade some ugly for functionality. The biggest ding to it is if we have our door fully open (which would limit its usefulness).

I could see doing this on the second door into the bedroom / bathroom. Maybe even a closet door, but I would pass on the main entrance.

EDIT: I remember watching a video from Luv Your RV or something like that where he made a show holder in some unused paneling by the door. It was a dead space behind a cabinet drawer.
