DIY ~ Ford Transit Connect XLT Van [rollout kitchen finishings–potable water storage–now filled…], 09/10

…with water, just in case, for Hurricane Florence

This 10-foot 5/8″ hose will eventually be connected to the mobile kitchen that I will place on the roll-out shelf. In the meantime [for this storm] I have water stored in case I need it.

A 35-gallon water storage pod

 

To facilitate the many pieces of photography gear in the Xtreme trailer, I did not order water storage, a sink, or a cooktop. After all, it is to be a mobile photo studio. Anyway, I want those features and more. My van kitchen planning is coming along…

Today, I added the Norwesco 35-gal portable water tank. I built the stand and its base over the last few weeks. I built the base from 2″ x 12″ x 8′ lumber. I covered both the base and stand top with laminate leftover from my rollout tray [orange] and scraps [blue] my neighbor gave me from the sewing table I built. BTW, I built the stand so I can remove my Xtreme spare tire, should I flat with a full tank of water.

The tank is in. Next, I have to add the plumbing. I may do so next month or maybe in September. Stay tuned…

Paint, lacquer, laminate, stain, and oil

 

Notable is the laminate covering in the tray. From here, the build should begin to look more like a mobile kitchen. Also, see the base for this tray
