Spice Rack Conversion & Bathroom Mod

I posted in another thread requested pictures of the bathroom conversion I did in my 345. I also mentioned the spice rack mod but did not have pictures to post then. I took these recently and thought I'd share.
On second thought, I've also attached pictures of the bathroom mod for those who might have missed it.

Great job on the bathroom wall, I might do the same. The 370 has the spice rack conversion already done, however I am missing the original Airstream accessories that came with it. I understand that they were either glasses or bottles. Regards, Bob

John..great use of the space behind the gas range. Did you build the spice/liquor rack or is is the rack/cupboard available in a pre-built or kit form?
Not sure from the pics what you did to the bathroom (moved the mirror certainly) but what else?
Thanks
chris

Just be careful if you have both back burners on high! Otherwise, I'm coming over for a little beverage of a sociable nature!

Chris,
The bathroom mod included moving the door to the shower side and cutting back the wall beside the toilet. That, and installing an elongated china bowl commode made the area much more comfortable for business.. It also created a very functional dressing area when the bathroom door is closed.
It was a huge improvement.
On the liquor cabinet questions, the tambour door spice cabinet was original. I removed one (or two - don't remember) shelves and the catch bars. I just carefully sawed them out and used a touch up crayon to blend in the marks. I then cut a piece of mill finished aluminum as a back panel against the wall. Since I have never used the stove, heat is not a concern and wouldn't be even if I did.
You all have a standing invitation for cocktails!

Bathroom refurb

John..guess I was spoilt without knowing it when I bought the 350LE. Seems that this model came with the folding bathroom door conversion which allows the hinged bathroom door to be opened so as to close off the rear bedroom while at the same time, extending the "concertina" door to the lounge/kitchen". The result is a fairly large bathroom/toilet. This achieves a similar effect to your conversion.
I assume the "tambour" rack was a standard fitting on earlier Classics as mine places the frozen margarita appliance drive behind the gas range...be happy to demonstrate whenever we meet!
Chris.

Chris,
The picture you posted is how my unit was set up before the modification.
I found the toilet area a bit too "cozy". I used the existing bathroom door which I turned upside down and mounted it on the shower side. I carefully removed and reused all of the trim. I also cut back the wall beside the toilet which really opened up the area.

Nice job

John..now I understand your redesign. I guess from our point of view, we wanted to keep the bathroom/commode door as is so as to allow privacy and still provide pass through to the bedroom with guests on board. See you for cocktails one day!

I'm with you on that! You do give up being able to walk from the bedroom to the front while someone is on the toilet but by closing the door and the curtain wall at the bedroom privacy is not an issue. For me, the number of times I use the facilities and enjoy having a comfortable dressing area far outweigh the number of times it poses any problem. In fact,I don't recall it ever having been an issue.
The bar is open!

Seeing all of the recent posts about air conditioners struggling to cool adequately, I'm reviving this old post about my bathroom modification.
I failed to point out another very "cool" advantage of it! Having the bathroom door relocated so that it effectively closes off the bathroom and rear bedroom, I frequently close it while traveling and run only the front roof air and dash unit. It keeps things super comfortable having to carry only about 2/3 of the entire area. Just wanted to share that...
