Hey Royce, your build looks great so far. Curious where you got your countertop fabbed? I'm in Fairbanks, too, and just starting to work on our conversion and have been planning on a very similar-looking piece. Thanks!

Thank you GallaGo,
The counter tops came from Holliday-Parks Sheetmetal.
Good luck on your conversion and I have some equipment and materials that I won't be useing, if you are interested.

I was curious about the cut in the countertop for the sink - Did they cut it for you? What method was used to do it? Looks great.

I cut a plywood backer with the sink cutout for the counters, that they used to pattern by.
I let them know that I would take care of cutting the sink out, but when I picked up, they had done it.
The cutout does not appear to be plasma or water jetted, so I would guess that it was cut with a laser or side grinder.
Thanks

After thinking about this, I'm betting it was cut with a nibbler.

Finishing up the last of the domestic water piping.
The shower enclosure is rather limber so I made a backer board to stiffen it up and have a place to fasten the shower valve and pipe supports.
I mounted the shower valve lower than usual and offset it, so it could be reached from the ground for washing dogs when they roll in horse **** or what have you.
It is hard to clearly photograph, so here is a schematic of what I did and a few pics of the shower area.
