Interior of shower room walls

These pictures show the 3mm plywood internal skin applied in readiness for waterproof covering. The really hard bit was scribing the ply to the curve of the roof and also the ceiling/floor. It turned out really well. Again no straight joins here just curves, the framework at the bottom left as you view from outside the van will hold the thetford toilet waste door, it fits just between the uprights and the horizontal support. I can easily stand outside the sliding door and remove the waste tank without bending down or straining. Again in keeping with the idea there should be nothing on the outside to show it's a motorhome inside, so far i'm doing well.

Shower room frame

This week I have been working on the shower room, this is constructed from 2" x 2" planed timber fixed to the floor walls and ceiling by various methods, the frame is amazingly strong. It will be cladded on the inside and outside with 3mm ply, using curves no straight lines, looks good but very very hard to fit. The area inside the shower room is 1200mm x 1200mm or 4ft x 4ft. This gives loads of room for showering etc. Next post will be the ply cladding inside the shower room.
