we have a wall!

i started putting the ceiling up. holy moly! it's hard! the most difficult thing i've done on the bus so far.

i put up foil bubble wrap insulation first, then screw the boards on , then stuffed insulation in between. i needed to take a break from putting the ceiling up so i did enough so i could finally put a wall up. it's in between the sink cabinet and the bathtub. getting the curve just right to fit was impossible so there are a couple gaps. whatev.

the blue is a little shelf. it holds 10 - 1/2 pint mason jars. there are going to be 3 more shelves under it. 2 for pint size mason jars and 1 for quart size.

i brought over steven's bachelor pad fridge. it's going to sit about 8 inches from the edge of the bunk bed. it's enough room for them to wiggle their skinny bodies up to the top. i'm going to build a cabinet for the fridge and ice box to sit in with a little shelf over top.

we aren't sure if we are going to use the fridge as a freezer with a shelf dedicated to making ice for the ice box. or if we are going to use the fridge as a fridge and have the ice box be general storage. not really important now but it's something to think about.

i'm in the beginning research stages to set up a solar system to run the fridge.
