It's amazing how such a small addition can make such a difference! The white circular thing hanging under the cabinet is called a "Pop-a-Plate". It's a wonderful invention for anyone using lots of paper plates.

When not gearing-up to take on the big camper project, Roy is reading a wonderful book series about elves, druids, monsters, and more! The author is Terry Brooks and the first book in the series is called, First King of Shannara.
Last night he made a wonderful meso soup and sushi dinner!!!

I plan to repaint with the same colors this weekend.
To help limit future wall damage, I've padded the cart! Marilyn

Roy measured the area behind the stove and built a custom shelf providing for maximum use.
Tah Dah! Isn't it beautiful? It's functional not only in fully occupying the space, but it frees up cabinet space and makes the can goods easier to find. Maybe we'll eat more veggies, too! The cutting board fit to the side of the shelf perfectly freeing up even more space! We have found the cutting board makes a perfect sink cover and increases counter space. More camper modifications to come.

The project is huge. Between every stack of cages will be a 42" wide by 60" high piece of 20 gauge plastic. Later grommets will be added to the plastic for ease in removing the sheets for sanitizing. We've clipped them on for now. The plastic comes in 45' long rolls and the plastic is 54 inches wide. We came up with the plan to use the 12" square floor tiles as a guide for keeping the plastic straight for cutting. Pretty clever, huh? We started out using my cutting mat and rotary cutter, but have moved up to a piece of paneling with guide lines and the rotary cutter. It's working great! Another volunteer is helping me keep everything aligned.
We're proud to say the project is nearly invisible! I've spaced the cages so that you can get a better glimpse of the plastic between the cages. Twenty barriers are needed to complete the front cat room. We're nearly done. We still have the Intake Room to do. Check out the hammocks made while living in the camper at the beach!
Here are a couple of kitties enjoying their hammocks. It makes my heart soar seeing how comforted the cats seem snuggled in their beds! Marilyn
