Thane, that turret would look pretty darn cool mounted up there. Looking forward to seeing some photos.

I also have a WWII bomber astrodome (like a small B-17 top turret) that I think would make a great skylight. Both of these ideas scare the wife...
What a great idea! Also, you wouldn't need a GPS any longer...just climb up there with an sextant and a chronometer

Re: installing a sink in the bathroom

Hi,,Unless you really MUST have this sink, I wouldn't touch it..Way too much could go wrong and the pay off is questionable.

Re: installing a sink in the bathroom

Bathroom sinks are a must in my book. Especially if you use the toilet. That is one feature (of course along with others) that was instrumental in my purchase and we all use it!

Re: installing a sink in the bathroom

I really like the little sink and use it for a quick handwash (although I do have the alcohol gel hanging in a holder on the wall) use it for teeth brushing--I'm short--it works!!
Doug can be out using the kitcchen sink and shaving with the mirror above the fridge--I can do my thing in the bathroom and not be in his way..

Re: installing a sink in the bathroom

With the four of us, the kitchen sink gets used a lot. I set up the outdoor shower as a hand washing station for the kids with bio-degradable camping soap and suction cup towel and soap bottle holders. A little shovel work sets up a nice catch basin and some dirt applied every so often keeps it from getting too damp.

For morning and night use, the wife would really appreciate another sink.

Re: installing a sink in the bathroom

I found the all-season mats from the Rav make a good surface when using the outside shower. Keeps dirt from splashing up.
