Bathroom shevling

Josie has been after me to come up with an extension for the sink and a shelf over the commode. So here is the protype a simple system using command hooks and removable shelf. This will be an extended trial period since we are now on route to Osoyoos and other adventures and will be on the road for 6 to 7 months.

Nicely done. Is that a cedar fence? I may have to do that.

I like the concept and could see it used in several places in the trailer as well as the bathroom.

Very interesting idea. I will be curious to see how well the 3M Command hooks hold up with that, please keep us posted.

Good luck on it being a prototype. I do that sometimes and often it ends up being there for the long term.

Nice idea. Would be very handy to have a little counter space beside the sink.

Myron, I think you should make one of those sink units entirely out of your purple heart look-alike wood.

The wood on the longer shelf is cedar cabinet liner. We had some left over from other projects.

I had looked at several different command hooks this one filled the bill by carrying ten pounds per hook and being aprox. 1\2" wide.

Heard that, Ron. So I'm looking at maybe adding shelves on the sink wall. It could be done without drilling any holes. Maybe unscrew a couple of them screws attaching the sink to the wall and inserting straps that go straight up, and serving as an attachment point for two shelves.

Note my wood grab bar which I made for the shower head I will never use. (It is there for others.) The shelf straps would connect to it. It is screwed into the wall using the same hole the original holder used, but my screws go through to the closet so it will never get pulled off. Think this is better than grabbing a suction cup.

I have that design constraint on my projects. My wife cringes if I mention that a mod involves drilling holes in the trailer. I was also looking at those screws that hold the sink. Pretty strong attachment point.

My build requirements did not include any reinforcement in any walls. Seems to be enough cross framing inside at key areas to serve. So far I've found them all.
