    Sweet - keep us posted! The world is your oyster with this extrusion stuff, just takes a bit of creativity and critical thinking (and money :))

    I'm just stoked for better organization (vs current setup of shoving bins under my sleeping platform) and a "guest room"!

    thats pretty good considering a goose gear set up is 5k plus for everything. The connection pieces/hardware and aluminum add up quick. If you can build it under 1000 your doing pretty good IMO

    Its kinda relative. Looks like $6 per foot or so. I can see how the endcaps fittings blabla adds up though.

    If you want to save money, you don't get it pre-cut and you may fabricate your own corner brackets using angle metal cut to width…

    I had a whole idea of what I was going to do in my head (I'm pretty alright at playing Real Life Tetris), but I had never considered going the 80 20 route. I was going to make it all out of birch, but hey, this may save me some weight. I'm starting to get weight-paranoid.

    You went with 1" square it looks like for the 80/20?

    That was my logic, and you get exactly what layout/features you want. 8020 is never a "cheap" option compared to wood, but it's far easier to work with and configure/reconfigure.

    I also paid to have the ends tapped for each piece to make things easier. One of the bigger costs so far is in the corner gussets (close to $100), as I wanted to make sure this thing is rather robust since it will most likely also be used for more than 1 person sitting, two dogs, and as a step to climb upstairs.

    Yea, these are for sure ways to cut down on cost. I chose to go with my exact lengths since it was already in CAD and able to pull the dimensions, and I assembled it in my condo (no metal cutting required ha!)

    It's 90% 1" square. The longer bench will also have two pieces of 1"x2" for support/reinforcement mid way. I sat on it and wasn't happy with the deflection I noticed, which may or may not go away with the cladding but figured it was only a bit more so might as well beef it up.

    Ohhh I see. I gotta look more into it. I've only worked with 80/20 a few times at work. Never ordered gussets.
    I agree with you I think its great for the $ you can do it in cad, have it cut and just assemble at your place. For people in Condos HOA etc its a blessing.
    What site* did you use?

    I used the Series 10 stuff from Tnutz, which is equal to the 1" options from 80/20, just cheaper.

    80/20 Extrusion talk
    Here's a thread to a Vagabond Drifter owner that did an interior build out with aluminum extrusion. They no longer have their Drifter or interior.

    https://www.tacomaworld.com/threads/8020-cabinet-construction.626982/

    They saved some money by ordering from several vendors and tapping the ends of the extrusions and making some brackets to attach them together. They did order the extrusions pre-cut though.

    That might be a touch optimistic FWIW.
    I put in a deposit in Nov, and still looking at Mid-April timeframe.

    Ah sorry, my bad. I put the initial $500 deposit down in November.
    Jealousy clouded my vision there for a bit!
