Plumbing (expensive!) Propane (heavy!) Cats Working in the rain The water setup is complex because I have hot water preheat to each fixture with a temperature control, and I have a reversing valve shunt set up so I can connect a pick-up line to the water panel, and pump water out of fixed vessels and […]
Hello Internet Friends, It’s been a while. Here’s some pictures of the progress in the last few months. It feels like every win is really hard-wrought. Took a real drive somewhere in the bus last weekend, and aside from random screws and bits rolling out from crevices (they were ones I dropped, I swear!) it […]
I’ve been working mostly on electrical and lighting, some utility and improvements up front, and just trying my hardest to get the storage bay finished up down below. Crawling around on my knees in the gravel in December/January has not felt like the best use of my time, but here I am. In no particular […]
I’ve been working at getting more lighting in, and staying with reflective where possible. I also got the fridge reconnected again, so that’s nice.

Got some onboard electrical going finally. I have an older 40 amp float charger – you can just leave it plugged in. I am treating the lighting in the bus sort of like a car, they are connected to the coach batteries not house batteries. There is a relay setup that connects the coach batteries […]
Got the folding activity tables installed. Each table is 77×18 inches. It should be enough room for 6 folks to eat dinner, computer nerd, draw, homework, whatever. They fold flat and stow under the beds. The upper beds will have sheeting and fold out lights or whatever. When the uppers are folded out for beds, […]
Master bedroom door. Keeps the peanut gallery out. Its a nice space saver, and still locks. Little felt pads and some angle channel helps keep the sound from traveling. It feels like an elevator door. Those are just drawer hinges doubled up. The clear plastic panel above lets natural light in from the roof hatch.
Someone asked how you make those luggage doors with the big folds in the flat-ish. You know the ones – the bus driver thought they could make it over that hump in the road and high centered the vehicle instead. So I’m assuming you don’t have completely destroyed doors, like no tears in the sheet […]
