It’s almost done!

There are still hundreds of tiny things to do, but I’m on the final stretch to being done!

I’ll post a video tour soon.

Framing the back wall, installing windows and a door, insulating and sheathing it:

Update! Electricity, skylight, kitchen cabinet…

I’ve been busy! The electricity is mostly wired. I have an iota DLS-45 converter hooked up to a simple fuse box. The batteries aren’t hooked up yet to provide power. But soon I’ll have two sets of lights- one set over my bedroom and one set over the kitchen area. I’m using these LED lights, which are meant to work with an AC system, but I cut off their on-cord inverter so they’ll work with my DC system. I’ll also have two hubs to either plug in a 12 volt accessory or charge my phone through a usb port. I’ll have an on/off switch for my water pump. My two vents are also hooked up to an on/off switch. Lastly, there’s a fan hooked up to where I’m housing my batteries to vent the fumes out. All-in-all it’s a very small system for my battery bank. I have four 6 volt deep cycle golf cart batteries.

I’ll finish the wiring soon and connect my batteries… very exciting!

Alright well… below are some pictures from installing the skylight, beginning to paint the roof with this paint, and the new kitchen cabinet. Things are really coming along! I should be done relatively soon.

batteries

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.

Thanks for reading!
