Boat or caravan.............
5 Attachment(s)
.......wondering whether the bookcase back panel would be big enough to make a caravan or boat .....made a few doodles....its 29'' long,could do with being a bit longer but i think it would look ok...borrowed the furniture from the jwrens to get an idea of layout...may need to make the kitchen from balsa wood,the units could do with being a bit smaller.....need 2 walls for bathroom and bedroom....thought the height of 9'' would do ok for an ott or resin of 6'' and maybe 8'' depth.....trying to get as much out f the panel as i can..would have a drop down front......(watched that GEORGE fellow the other day with his 'small spaces' programme...and then you have PATTY'S lovely caravans.........i want one too..!):-B

...he wants a boat...she wants a caravan...:confused:...i can see a van with a decking and the shingles on the outside walls...more static caravan......;)...would like to see venetian blinds at windows..would'nt use these ones,would like a round window in shower room...have a little corridor from front door to shower room where a coat rack could be put...maybe a smaller settee to save space...built in wall unit for tv,stereo,dvds and books,little table,wall lights,kitchen diner type set up,panelled or tongue and groove interior walls....

Its got to be a static modern day caravan in a holiday park! thats what your layout, accessories and windows etc. bring to mind! It would be a very original project Su, go fo it! x

I'm with Sergio, a nice houseboat then they can go up and down the canals, seeing the changing scenery, lovely way to spend the weekends

Love it! Thanks for showing your planning - the pics made me smile :)
I'll be watching with interest 'cos I've got a scratch built narrowboat on my future projects list - and 2 gypsy caravans before that - but they will be more traditional 'cos the caravans are already built, just need the insides fitting out and the outsides renovating.
I very much like your way of planning the sizes. It would work well for a house too wouldn't it? Might make for something a bit different from the norm...
Stop it Tania! Woodbine Cottage, caravans and narrowboat before you add another project to the list!
You've started something now!
