GH

Really like the look of the cabin car. Now, you got me thinking... maybe a second tear in the future and did not even use the first one yet.

Keep the pictures coming.

Steve, know what you're saying these two guys with the Cabin Car's have really got something great going here! Think we could incorporate the Little Diner's wall & ceiling designs into the Cabin Car's profile & dimentions? :thinking: :thinking:

I've got a 5'x11'2" frame with 6' tonge made out of 2x3 tubing. Think that could hold the Cabin Car? Have to put extenders maybe for the 6' wide body, but plenty heavy enough. Really like Robs, but what about adding 18" on the wall between the cabins for closet, TV, radio, etc. Got to have those modern convences. :roll:

Man, you are really flying on that trailer. Makes me kind of ashamed for taking so long to get started. Lets see, you have a whopping 25 days in it now. WHEW! Hey, why don't you build one for me?!?!?!?!?! :lol:
Chris :D

The tension between what is good enough and what is beyond that creates the space for character to become our work.

Thanks Chris. Now that I understand how these things go together, the second one should be easier! :lol:
Wanted to get at least a shell done so me and the boys can use it a bit.This is camping time down here on the sandpile!
I can always add the small bits later as we go. I still have not figured out my kitchen yet. :oops:

Mike,

It's 4'high, 6'wide and 10' long. and by the way if you had read the earlier post you would know that! :lol: Sorry Mike had to say it before someone else did. :lol: :lol:

Are you going to build one too? Steve could start 3 of them, then he would have plenty to do for the winter.

Got the kitchen counter in today. The support under the front lip was too low so I had to notch it out. I put the cooler in and made the frame work and layed the counter in and screwed it down. I went to take the cooler out and :x realized my mistake.
