      see the little square in front of the bed when it's down. I believe that is the bathroom. Its behind the outdoor kitchen.

    What a great build. I love the outdoor kitchen. I'm still deciding if I want to have indoor also, but I prefer to cook outside as not to have cooking smells in living area. Do you have an awning or canopy to cover in the rain. And do you close the ramp at night or leave the kitchen open. A slider with a locking screen door attached would be useful and safer. Thank you for sharing your build, so many useful ideas. Wonderful !

    I really love your conversion. Gorgeous!! Did you make the "feet" on your bed or purchase something ready made. I want to replicate that in mine.

    You should have put the bed on a high platform as we did in our 6x13.5. Enabled us to use the entire floor space for storage, 4.4 frig, two seat couch, nine drawer storage, dresser, ottoman.
