...and crafting a purposeful recovery

Vanity project

I continue to work all over the place – a little water system, a dose of trim and a touch of vanity.

For lack of a better description, my “gray water” system needs to be completely independent of my fresh, drinking water supply. Of course, that will require a separate inlet. But I don’t want fill spouts all over Sparta’s exterior – mustn’t disrupt those clean, aerodynamic lines. So I decided to put that fill-cap in a wheel well, out of sight.

Hmmm – what do you suppose my clearance requirements will be on a really bumpy road?
Crude but effective – like much of my work.

Wherever Sparta ends up it will be more-or-less permanent so I don’t have to worry about the inconvenience of hooking up my shower line more than once to this oddly-positioned fill.

From water to water closet (whoever came up with that innocuous term for bathroom anyway? I know…Europeans). The latter needs a vanity and it was a very easy build. With two solid 3/4″ plywood walls and one kinda flimsy 1/4″ birch wall flanking it on three sides, it was a snap to just finish out the front and brace it and top it.

A little peg here…
…and a little glue there…
…and voila. Today the laminate, followed by a surface-mount sink.
