Folding bathtub drainage

Cutting a hole in the floor
One of the joys of living is a trailer is how very malleable our abode is. Want to cut a hole in the floor for folding-bathtub drainage? No worries --- just pull out the hole saw and Big hole sawwhack on through.

A layer of
linoleum, a layer of subflooring, and a thin layer of particleboard that holds our supposed floor insulation in place later and we had an opening to the outside.

The next step was to push a corrugated black plastic pipe up through the hole, then attach the other end to the back of our below-the-sink drainage system. Instant access to the graywater wetland!

I've already enjoyed the wonders of our folding bathtub in action, but you'll have to wait for another post to see it in place. I know --- I'm such a tease!
