I see you have toe space under the cabinets. I tried to configure that with 8020 but decided the extra cost wasn't worth it. Kudos for yours.

Thanks Gene,

I fought with the idea for a while then just ended up coming up with a design that I thought would work. Certainly not the best but we'll see how it pans out once it's all buttoned up.

The infamous "it's done" aka I'll find something I forgot or need to change in a week or so

The bar leaned up against the fresh tank will bolt to the two post with plusnuts in the top. It will then have a Shelf stretched across to the expansion tank mounting bar with justtt enough clearance for the cap! I made that bar removable so if I ever needed to remove the tank for some reason I wouldn't have to drain and take out that elbow. Just kill the ball valve that will be shorty after it, remove bar tilt out and lift up... some day I'll see if it was worth the time and effort

How many gallon tank is that, and where did you source it?

Thinking about going upright myself.

It's a 20gallon tank from plastic mart.com I went with the 'custom' fitting configuration.

Haven't measured but with where the fittings are im guessing I'll get 17-18 gallons in there

Final epoxy coat is cured. It has its imperfections but damn happy with the turn out

Default 170ext land yacht

Subfloor is finally a finished product a year later. I'm absolutely miserable at starting and finishing things in an organized order. Never having built something so technical is proving quite the learning experience

There is 1.5" pink hardboard insulation underneath along with a series of joists. I was willing to loose head space since I'm short

Next up will be the motion window install before winter hits and while it's warm/ dry enough to paint the edge after the cut
