And here's the final of the dinette table mod. Wife loves it now that she sees it in person and has sat at it. Table is very stable with no wobble, and we have a LOT more table space than we used to.

And of course more ideas came to mind as I did the other ones. We use the little storage box at the entrance for shoes. That's all good, but, wife would rather make it a shoe rack instead of a shoe box. Originally I was going to modify the original box, but it was just easier to build a new box. So, here's the new box built and stained. Still have to seal and poly it. I'll utilize the padded top on this as well, so it'll look kind of original, but more functional for us.

Another thing we wanted was a bookshelf in the master room, so, this is in the making. One picture shows the framing for the shelf, the other shows the panels that will be mounted to the framing along with the trim and the mount backing that will go in the closets to give a better mounting base for the sides of the shelf through the closet walls. The top panel will be secured with screws, where I can later remove it and run wires to install 2 reading lights, one on each side of the bed. This will be fed off of the light just above the shelf.

Thank you Tom. You got me whooped on the mods. I can't remember how many pages you have now. As always, love them, and great job on your end as well.

Thank you Chris. Once I'm through with all this, then what? Trade it in? I got so much time and money in this thing now I'm not sure if I could ever part with it.

Bedroom Book Shelf

So here's the new bookshelf above the bed. This was another wife request. We both like our books, and when living in this thing, the nightstand areas can get a little overwhelmed. Last picture is of the backer installed in the closets using kreg pocket screws. This was the only way to have something besides 1/8" panel to secure the shelf to.

Some might notice, or maybe not, but the face trim is installed with small trim screws. What you can't see is the top shelf panel is installed with small screws as well. The reason behind this is to be able to remove the trim and panel later and run wiring to 2 individual reading lights under the shelf. I'll get the power feed from the light above. Just thinking ahead.

Shoe Rack

And here's the new shoe rack that replaced the bench / box thing by the door. Again, another wife request. We had always used the storage area for shoes not in use anyway, but this sure makes it neater. The new rack was made the exact dimensions of the old box, thus the hinged padded seat was never removed. Keeps it kind of original looking. Last picture is what was taken out of there. Not much to it.

Great work!!!

As to what next after all the kids are done, maybe knock on a neighbors door and ask them if they need a couple thing modded! Lol

Way to much work and time to just sell the rig off and start over.

Keep up the mods!!!
