    I've asked lots of questions on the BL recently, want to show a couple of the mods I did:


    1. Installed LED lights in the kitchen (under each of the 4 shelves). Works great.
    2. Cut out high density foam and installed cuts outs for my glasses and cups in the top right shelf of the kitchen and cut outs for plates and bowls in the top drawer of the pullout slide

    On my previous trailer I bought the foam at Sondor and then got it waterjetted (after drawing the shapes on autocad). It doesn't work out that cheap as you are forced to buy a 2m x 1m piece of foam which costs about R1,500, and then you still need to go to the effort of drawing it out and paying a company with a waterjet.

    This time I used a company called Studio Works in Silverton Pretoria. Took a sample of each of the glasses and cuttlery. They lay it out for you, supply the foam and cut it. Costs about R300 - R400 per insert.

    Works out cheaper and easier than doing it yourself.

    I even have a manual grinder in the BL for the coffee beans.... I'm ever so sorry I started experimenting with coffee. I used to be very happy with my Jacobs...

    I'm busy doing homework to start brewing my own beer. I suspect I'm going to regret that too...

    If you point me in the right direction for the grinder, I'll help you with brewing beer.

    Bought mine at Takealot - see HERE. It even has a ceramic grind mechanism .

    Still early days on the beer. Checking the cost of kits vs buying the items needed separately. My dad used to brew his own beer when I was very young so I never had the opportunity to test it....

    Thanks!

    Unless you're planning to build a very professional brew set-up, you can get away with the basics quite cheaply. Let me know if you have any specific questions.
