Spring remodel part 8 finale!

Starting with this 6 foot tall slide out pantry that we removed to make room for the fridge, I removed the solid oak face and set it to the side.
then I picked the best 2 sections of shelves within my 20 inch limit and screwed them together back to back leaving
the rollers in place.
After test fitting, I reinstalled the tracks on one side of the shelves.

I had some extra room to take up to adjust for the toe space so I built an oak box to blind mount the face to.

The finished product works perfectly and is almost as big as the original pantry in storage capacity.

Remodel part 7!

Been busy but I found the time to start getting the laundry area functional. I'd been scratching my head on where I should tap into the drain system.
This flexible Y was the answer!
I have the hardest time with plumbing but this went pretty smoothly.
First "solar" load of laundry was fantastic. Power consumption was far less than expected during the wash cycle. The incoming solar had no problem keeping up with demand. The dry cycle pulled around 130 amps which we won't be using while boondocking for obvious reasons.
Also, with the not needed dishwasher gone and sold to a nice old lady for her house, we have room to install our inverter microwave.

Now for the pantry drawer underneath.
