Have a 1970's bathroom. Updated it myself. I never did a bathroom so it took a little while understanding everything.

Its like standing in the warm pouring rain now!

Remodeling condos in Mammoth I was able to salvage some clear old growth cedar which was in my garage for years before I got an idea for a pickup camper. So I came up with this idea. It had to be aerodynamic, and with a solar panel on top fit through my garage door.

The ribs were cut from 3/4" plywood and the cedar was ripped to 1/4" strips which were glued to each other and the rib frame.

We have taken quite few trips and have been enjoying it. The truck does well on the back roads, and we have woken up in some beautiful places.

Recently I added this awning, and sure enough we have found some weather where it's useful.

One of the finest craft jobs I've seen on ST or of any homemade campers, ever. You've built boats I take?

I'd put max foam between the camper and shell. The wood framing of a factory made camper of an acquaintance came completely apart on some washboards in Baja. Maybe even air down when off road. Amazing work!

This thread will be completely destroyed w/o pictures after 6/1. Chrome print to PDF was ~500mb. One of the best threads ever.

I generally hold belief that one should not rock a homemade truck canopy, but that cedar strip number is pretty sweet.

This has always been my favorite thread. A lot of content disappeared when I had that little falling on my sword incident.

One more for the road:

I’ve started work on the caretakers residence portion of a dream residential project. I get to wear the supervisor helmet. Pretty stoked.

I made this “funnel” for the top of the ICF walls:

We don’t have access to a pump truck in our town anymore, so it was boom truck and garbro bucket:

It performed flawlessly in stunning machinery yellow:

Nary a drop was spilt.

Driveway is 25%, so the mixer, boom, and dumps all get hauled out with a loader:

Builders gonna build.

Happy hammering!

Contractor - Tried PM'ing you a week ago, didn't work.
Is there a company email address that I can use to get ahold of you?
