Compact3 materials list

Has anyone seen a materials list for Andrew Gibben's Compact3 design on the "Rescued Design Library"?

Has anyone seen a materials list for Andrew Gibben's Compact3 design...


Tim:

I haunt these pages from time to time and don't believe I have ever seen a materials list for any camper.

The best way to search this forum is to use Google Advanced Search. If you type in "Compact 3," using quotations, you should get some hits.

:thinking:

Thanks Tony. Amazing what quotation marks will do!

I can figure out a materials list, just thought if someone had one it would be easier to estimate cost. I did find Woody's Camper and his adaptations of Gibben's plans and I like the simplicity and looks of the trolley roof. I don't know if a build will become a reality, but, I'm going to consider it. Mine will have to have a solar system (not the planetary kind), 12v fridge, exhaust fans, etc.

I doubt that you'll find a list. Andrew didn't usually make them. Your best bet is to look at the drawings and count/calculate the 1x2's 1x1's 1x3's, etc used. You'll have to estimate screws; but, those come in large boxes anyway. As you read through, you'll find more help as to what to purchase, too.
