This is what I built to house the batteries. Sorry to be so brief, but I’m posting this from my phone and can’t really figure it out!

More photos!

Alright. Well here are some more photos. I look like I know what I’m doing, but I had a lot of help. (Thank you for your help!)

Since my last post- I purchased my batteries (four T-105s), installed two vents, and put shelves in the closet.

I’ll take a picture of my batteries soon and post it.

Thanks for reading!

Plumbing!

Alright well would you look at this. The plumbing is looking pretty good! It’s not done yet… I’m missing a few parts and there’s tweaking to do. But this is a really great start that I’m excited about!

I like this set-up because I can either screw in a garden hose to my inlet and it will pressurize my system, or I can fill my tank and rely on my pump for water pressure.

I’ll share more photos when the plumbing is totally done.

electricity!

I think in my box truck I’ll have two 6V deep cycle golf cart batteries wired in series. I’ll do my deep charges through my converter and shore power. I’m going to leave my system in DC, because I won’t have a lot to run in the box truck- just my water pump, a few lights, and whatever gadgets I need to charge. I don’t need a refrigerator, microwave, or TV, and my stove and water heater run on propane. I’ll install cigarette lighter hubs to charge my gadgets.

Here are some of the videos and sites that have been helpful to me.

shower + closet framing + new stove

Here are the latest updates! The shower is in place and lined with cedar. The closet is framed and I’m utilizing its structure for a shelf in my bedroom area, and medicine cabinets for mirrors to make the space look bigger. I have a wonderful new fancy stove which will run on propane. I’m researching how to properly vent it.

Next I’ll put up some walls and start the plumbing.

Here’s a tour of the box truck!

Making furniture!

Here are some process photos from making a multifunctional piece of furniture. It is a bench for sitting and hanging out that someone will be able to sleep on. It’s also a big cabinet for storage. And, there’s a piano hinge on part of it so I can unfold a little table and have a place to eat and write.

Very exciting! Next I’ll finish the walls of my bedroom, then install the shower and do the plumbing.

Thanks for continuing to write me! I’m sorry I can be so slow to respond. I very much like hearing about everyone’s projects. I’ll post some of the emails I’ve gotten recently sometime soon. Feel free to contact me!

Thanks for reading, and for writing to me!

constructing new doors and installing them!

 

 

I’m so grateful that I have friends willing to help me with the box truck. This series of photos is from a weekend of working to make new doors, then install them.  I can’t believe it! I’m very happy to be rid of the roll-up doors and now have hinge doors. I’m also very happy to have skilled and generous friends.
