Cool Mods: Bench access, Shelves, Ext Storage

we just finished some mods we have thought about for a while:

- Bench seat access: thought about installing a 'drawer' as others have, but chose a simpler route - a removeable end cap for access to storage area underneath. Simply removed end, cut out access, and added two screws above the new hole on the outside which allow the end piece to 'hang'(corresponding holes in the end cap to accept the hanger screws)

:no cost, 4 hours

- Hallway cabinet shelves: always wondered why these shallow cabinets did not come with shelves - decided to use 1/4" x 3 1/2" oak planks(off the shelf at Lowes, and they can also cut these for you! nice), and used 2 brown 'chair braces' for mounting under each shelf end... fairly easy since they were pre-cut to 15 1/4"(right) and 16 3/4"(left) lengths. Used 2 in each lower cabinet side, and 1 in the uppers.

:about $20 total and 2 hours install

- Propane bay storage: installed wire shelving under the propane tank with zip ties to provide extra outside storage for extra water hoses, sewer hoses, etc - (I trimmed mine, but hardware store can probably trim these to length for you, about 5' each)

:$20, 1 hour

: ) share your mods

update: the bench storage, hall cabinet shelves, and propane bay storage have all worked well. Now we can easily get to the slow cooker under the bench seat, no more falling cans from the hall cabinets, and more useable room in the main bay!
