Thanks for the comments. There are three windows and it's less than i would design into my own unit. This coach will live in the Southern US and our client is concerned more about heat gain. The windows are large and should light the bedroom and the living area adequately.

I see your point; if large enough and properly located, 2 windows in the "living" area and one or two in the rear bedroom would actually do quite nicely.......

Nothing wrong with that either, I guess; so long as they're double-pane to retain heat/cold, and have shades/curtains for the same reason and to regulate light levels.....

Hello Anthony, Say that Volvo is "SWEET" very nice layout not to mention the Quality & Workmanship. I have only seen photos of your Builds and pretty much between (what I have seen in photos only also) you and the things Spooner spits out they are nice units. I'd give away my left n*t to see how Spooners "O'Malley" is doing but I have'nt seen any photos or even a post from him in quite awhile. Well enough of my impersanation of an Old Man sitting on a park Bench feeding the pidgeons. After all this I do have a question. All The Steel Framework That You Frame The Skeleton Out With.Is It Heavy Duty Weight Steel? From The Way It Looks. Is It All Tied In The Same Way As If You Were Building A Ten (10) Story Building???? I am assuming(really hate that word)that the roof is very strong and by the time you get all that nailed together.THERES NOT MUCH MOVIN.What is the shortest one you have built??? (Just the box)

Thanks,
M.

Thanks for your comments. The framing is typically 1 1/2 x 1 1/2 steel tubes welded (all the way around) at 16 oc. Pretty typical I think. With the plywood (not particle board) you get some pretty serious sheer strength. Not sure why but we always seem to hit on the 24.5 feet in length. It works out nicely because it equals 5 whole exterior sheets minus overlap. However if a client approaches us and wants a shorter unit, we;ll build it. As an architect i have become quite good at designing efficient usable spaces in a small volume.

I too am intrigued by Spooner's project and would love to see more photos. We are seriously considering moving our subcontract for the exterior to another supplier who builds in aluminum. They have come up with some very cool extrusions and i would love to intergrate into the interior design.

Tony
