Got the bunk beds painted and moved in. Along with my mattress up in the loft. Also found an unused fish cleaning table that will be my cooking table for now.

I’ve got one of those trailers too. They make a good foundation in my opinion. You can get em cheaper than the sea trailers and the older fruehoffs gave a better frame

Looks great. A big wrap around covered porch deck with an outdoor shower would be cool.

Great minds think alike. I have a shower house frame built and plans for a porch. Have a battery powered shower I’ll use for now just put in a bucket of warm water. But would like a propain tankless with a pump hooked up to a drum of water.

I just did this to my cabin. Have an outdoor shower attached to the side of the porch. 55gal barrel and a 12v pump feed a simple shower head. Will buy a tankless heater soon and attach it inline just before the shower head.

Best recent investment I have made

Instead of flooding with pics... here is a link to my cabin thread where the shower improvements start.

https://discussions.texasbowhunter.c...php?p=13591794

You can see the shell, then this weekend where I plumbed it. Will buy and plumb the heater in a month.

There was alot of good advice around pumps and heaters up above as well. I am looking at the ecotemp L5.

Do yourself a favor... get an on demand pump so you dont have to recirculate water back into the tote when nothing is open but the pump is on. Our old lease was like that... the ondemand is so much easier to deal with.
