Hi, Scottie! I work with Brian, and he said I should contact you. He showed me your site and some YouTube videos, and I became an instant fan. I struggle doing anything that requires vision or artistry, so I am always inspired by people who clearly have it, and better yet, live out their passion! I’m currently renovating my new town home in Arlington, and I hired an incredible interior designer who is new to the area, Jessica Arnold (JLArnolddesigns.com) who helped me style my place on a budget. She is working on finding me mirrors that look like big windows and attaching them to a barn door track on my main living room wall as the focal point and to hide my TV. Do you have any mirrors lying around by chance?! Thought I’d give it a shot. Anyway, I hope to meet you soon. I hear you sing karaoke–I have several numbers up my sleeve! I told Brian I’m willing to sing or dance back-up if you have the karaoke machine!

Hi! I have a question about your RV remodel. I want to take out the u-dinette that came with our trailer, but am having a hard time finding out how much the weight limit is. I would like to stay as close to the weight of the existing dinette as possible with the new things I want to move in there, but can’t figure out where to access that information. I saw that you put in new cabinets and a whole new couch into your slide! How did you calculate your weight limit for doing this? Thank you SO MUCH! You’re helping me out big time.

You should be able to Google your unit style and manufacturer and find out the weight limit as well as lot of other handy things to know. Just remember the weight limit is fully loaded with people, luggage, household materials.. the whole shebang. So make sure to leave room for those items in your calculations.
The easiest way to do figure out what you have to work with (since you want to keep it close to what it was) is to weigh each part as you remove it. If you aren’t able do that, you can weigh the whole unit with the old parts in, take them out, and weigh the whole thing again. The difference is what you have to work with for your new pieces. If the old pieces are made with mdf, they may be heavier than what you decide to replace them with.
Also your slide may have a weight limit of its own… if you take everything out like we did, you’ll have a blank slate to fill. (just don’t forget to calculate flooring if you change it out)

I just want to know the size of the plywood sides for you duck nest boxes made from scrap lumber.
Do you think I need one for each duck? I think these are really neat and also plan to use them for out of the rain feeding and chicken dust baths.

The plywood for the duck nesting boxes were roughly 3 feet wide and 2 feet high. How large are your ducks? I don’t necessarily think you would need one per bird, but maybe two or three birds per set up would work. The geese actually just prefer an old dresser drawer I put on the floor of the coop.
