I framed the roof today, if its nice tomorrow I will skin the roof and seal it im using 1/4 plywood then glue canvas to the plywood and paint the canvas. im building it to be a cap that sits on top of the walls and drops down 1 inch on the outside. the square in the middle can be used for a/c or roof vent. still undecided which a/c to use so I am preparing for both.

I applied 2 coats of paint yesterday and 2 more today, I will give it 1 more coat tomorrow and then install the roof. then I can seal and trim the outside corners and start on the inside. these images are not a double post the paint is the same color as the canvas.

I applied the last coat of paint, installed the power inlet and breaker panel. after the paint dries i'll get the roof installed, make and install exterior trim, then I will either install the a/c or build and install the door.

I placed the roof on top of the camper today, I will try to secure it and install some braces tomorrow. its starting to look more like a camper as soon as I seal the corners I will take more pics of the outside. i'm having to keep it covered because of rain.

I secured the roof to the walls today. I planned on cutting the trim but I got to hot and had to stop. 95 degrees inside the camper at 9:30 this morning

I made all the trim for the outside and sanded most of it before I had to stop. as soon as the rain stops I will stain and install the trim. I also ordered an a/c mounting gasket, when it comes in I will install the a/c and will be able to work inside the camper.

I stained the trim yesterday and installed it today, next I will trim the bottom edge of the roof, build the door and start on the inside. I will also install a couple windows in a few weeks.
