I covered my pump with some 2" soundproofing material, works great.

Yeah Bob,
Been there done that. Toilet open with fan running results in the dreaded rising of the sewer gas. Mr.T

Great mods Lee.

I plan on finishing my front storage area similar to yours. I have some t&g paneling left over from a project I may use. On our local graigslist there is a guy who sells a slide in drawer that is 8 inches deep and slides out from each opening. The drawers slide out an glides that are similar in style to the kitchen ones but are much bigger and have ball bearings on the frame part. He charges 350 dollars for them and says the whole system is on castors so you can move it around to adjust for other stuff. I will try and post a picture if anyone is interested on what they look like. I am concerned in adding additional weight to my tongue.
My front bed sits high up off the floor and have considered lowering the bed frame so my feet can touch the floor. This will change the front storage area so am purposely taking it slow on taking on this project . It might be easier to raise the floor but still thinking about what's best.

The luan plywood I used is very light so not much weight added, I`m thinking the t&g plywood would be heavier? Let us know how your mod goes and of course we like pics! The drawers sound nice but a little pricey for cheapskate Crabman!
