I will be using a 5x8 frame extended to 8x11 feet. Pretty much a standard shape with a full galley in the back. Wood sides. White interior with black cabinets. Bamboo floor. and no mattress. An Ac. An asian theme. Canopy for the side.

Sorry to say, 2 or 3 months yet. Time and money demands before then.

No mattress? Are you using a sleeping bag on the floor? It sounds like it's going to look pretty cool. I like the black cabinets idea. Mine was a 5x10 with two doors (thank goodness). The previous owner/builder didn't build cabinets inside or in the galley but a friend of mine built a couple for me as a "Teardrop Warming" present. I am a horrible carpenter so I bought Rubbermaid storage drawers and created a galley, which worked out great! I envy you guys and gals who can build your own Teardrop...kudos to you! :thumbsup:

I have a few surprise secrets I am working on to make work on paper. One is the sleeping. I will say it is a table. You can take it apart in 2 sections and it becomes a 6'6" by 30 inch bed. 6" mattress. So if it is as a table most of the floor is open and uncluttered.

We live about 100 miles north, but often come down to Brandon to see my daughter and SIL. Welcome to the board and any help or ideas, we are all happy to oblige.
