Our tiny house on wheels also has a washbasin and a shower in its bathroom! The extendable shower is a faucet and shower head at the same time – for inside as well as outside!
We already introduced you to all elements of our bathroom in the Camper, now we want to give some detailed information about how we built the washbasin!
The body of the washbasin or the base cabinet is made of HPL coated Banova plywood. We fitted the side walls to the curvature of the bathroom or rather the vehicle wall using a transfer scribe.
We marked the position of the shelves beforehand and marked them on tape. Then we drilled the holes as well as the counter drill with the help of dowel setters. After this was done we mounted the selves with wooden dowels and glue.
For drying we stabilized it with clamps.
Then we adjusted the template 😉
When we had the perfect template we transferred it to the final plate made of teakwood.
Now you can already get a first impression of how it will look in the bathroom when it’s build in!
So the washbasin or base cabinet is not only fastened to the side wall, we installed elbows for more stability. These were fastened with rivet nuts into the bars of the Sprinter. We also already sawed the holes for the cold and hot water supply with hole saws.
Only when everything fit, we connected the sink and the top plate using screws as well as Sikaflex 252i.
The compartment in the cabinet is for the hose of the faucet. More space can be used for e.g. towels.
Everything has to be waterproof, so we sealed every edge and corner and spot that bears the risk of water getting under the HPL-coating with silicone. Then we rounded the cabinet off with a door made of HPL-coated poplar plywood and a push locker.
