So the aforementioned 10 series fridge, freezer and gas oven on top,

And then back to the important stuff, a nicely laid out services locker with Alde boiler and service point for fluid change, water pump and drain valves all nice and warm next to the boiler.

The first picture of the fridge & oven made me giggle, I'm a short arse and there is no way I could reach that oven to put anything in, never mind take anything hot out ?

Nice one Martin,
Do like the colour match mirror arms, is that standard now or was it a ‘reasonable price extra’?
Also like the polished wheels?
:LOL: nothing on the extras is reasonably priced and these are on the secret extras list that you have to get Michael sallylillian to send you;) €600 for a bit of paint but yes they do look good, even Jen thinks it was money well spent.

I nearly turned in at the end of the estate at 4.55pm but I thought you might have gone, or fried the brain, so I carried on home, love the new van??

Really pleased you have what you desired, when we met in Berlin I think we all guessed you would never make up your mind, despite all your research, or find anything you really desired . Well done , pleased for you both.

Right NMC time Sandra Geraldine irnbru cliffandger

Should I have moved the tools?

IMG_3302.jpg

Nah I think its a great work area,

IMG_3299.jpg

You don't want a picture of a toilet do you?

IMG_3301.jpg

You have had a lucky escape with the garage as it's not fitted out yet but you will be the first to know when it is ;)

Underfloor heating right through as well as the Alde system radiators and separate temperature control for the bedroom, oh you didn't get a pic of the heated towel rail but it next to the toilet and there is a big shower there somewhere as well.

Looks amazing! Congrats.

We first saw one travelling through France last year, and had to Google the price.

We quickly put the phone away. ?

Hope it gives many happy memories.

Fantastic Martin, I'm so glad you and Jen got your (van) . I have to say it looks massive with you standing next to it and beside your house,my neighbours would go nuts if I get my choice of van as I don't have a driveway. Hope you have many enjoyable trips in the future once this nightmare is over.

Beautiful van! But Sandra took the words right out of my mouth!

And I think Jennie is far too soft - tools on a brand new worktop?!?!? :rolleyes:
Note the towel underneath, she knows I am fussier than she is ;)

How much solar do you have Martin..?
520 watts in four panels and two controllers making just over 20amps today, I expect better though as 320ah LiFePO4 to feed.

It should really be in the storage shed but I am playing nicely, sorry working on it.

Been there done that, but then realised the longer you leave it the more the price goes up.

Wow very nice, well done. I have a big one as well (length wise) but that is where the similarity's end.
The only consolation is that mine cost less than a 10th of yours :giggle:
More lottery tickets me thinks.

Enjoy your travels :drinks:

And for the electricians,

View attachment 390122

In the foreground is the Lader Booster or B2B, then the blue/green label is one of the solar regulators but these are Buttner Power Plus they don't fit MPPT for some reason :unsure: Normal CBE 12v fuse box and then 3 consumer/trip boxes one for main incoming EHU and then one for the purely EHU supplied equipment like battery charger, Combination microwave the fridge and the Alde, then a third box for the supplies that are backed up by the inverter so the Air conditioning is on that and I have moved the microwave over to that as well.

Sure...they are quite impressive aren’t they....or were you referring to funflair set up.
It’s strange isn’t it because Lenny HB told me they were rubbish and I should get rid of them...different strokes for different folks I suppose.
