Busy Weekend ~ modifications in progress...

This weekend's projects included 1) making the bunk end cover with the reflective bubble stuff from Lowes and 2) installing a closet rod to enlarge our changing area adjacent to the bath room (used wood stained to match the interior) now to get material to make a nice curtain and to Ikea to get organizing ideas for the pantry and storage areas..... Also, got a few over the door hangers and a key holder

These are a few of the things I did inside (related to TT in general, rather than my Roo)

We elected to use a wooden closet rod so there wouldn't be in tension rods falling on our heads (ouch) and feel it would hold a bit more weight if used for clothing. Considering using the "hanging" shelving for towels but don't want to overload the weight. Proly not an issue unless we're out for a week or more anyway. I like the look of it as well, it kind of disappears in the room with all the other wood in there.

Love the "over the door" hooks and towel holder ~ try to avoid putting too many holes in cabinets, etc. The key holder is low for use inside, but should be handy for grabbing while standing outside the door. Still at a loss for figuring out the pantry area. Would love to hear from others who have it down to a science. Went to Ikea today and found some great sized bins for over the sofa area but not for the thin openings in the pantry, kitchen cabinets. Our Container Store opens in 2 weeks ~ can't wait to check them out

DH suggested I build what I want for the closet ~ he is proly right, what are the chances I'll find something just the right size?

It looks like you like to use wrought iron. Do you make your own wrought iron things?

are you sure you want to use Reflectix on top of the canvas?
i only use mine inside. one good gust of wind will rip that Reflectix to pieces.
that's why most of us use PUG's or the generic solar blankets, they are made to take a beating.

who knew? we did use some small clips to minimize "lift" and had pretty good gusts here today ~ guess it'll be a live and learn proposition..... Thanks for the input. Hoping to visit the FROG event in Kissimee in April, maybe will meet other hybrid owners there

Hello Well, the end of another successful weekend Today DH and I dug through the shed and found some nice wood and made 3 more shelves for the pantry. All my picnicing supplies, paperware, storage and mixing bowls, foil, plastic wrap, zip bags, cups and tumblers are ready for action! Once we accomplished that we decided to tackle the closet. I had seen others do this mod with wire shelving but we elected to do wood and made it in such a way that I can take out two shelves and use it as a closet or leave in shelves and use it for folded items. Tired but feeling really good
