Obviously I want to make it comfortable and practical, but I think maintaining that bus feel would be really neat (this means no walls if i can help it). I really like the way this one worked out and would like to have a similar feel once mines finished
I am not going to bother with plumbing. I really want to keep it simple. That being said I may have an outdoor solar heated shower with a curtain that folds out off the side of the bus...maybe. Im thinking a woodstove for heating and a basic rv generator for basic electrical needs. No concrete plans as of yet.
I am in BC Canada so there will be lots of wilderness centered trips and not as much city use.
How do you all go about posting your photos? Do you link them from another site?
Are you in a rush to get this thing going? Take your time. I want to have mine relatively finished by June. You don't want to build it out, covering access to inside the walls, only to find out the thing smells terrible because of mold in the insulation. It really doesn't take that long. Get a few people with drills and drill out the rivets, itll only take a few hours. I did all the screws in my bus (750+) in just a few hours. Though my arms were dead afterwards.
I have been using that picture you linked for inspiration.
To post photos, I use Imgur (imgur.com) and upload them to there (resize to 1024x768 or so first) and then copy the link from there (BBcode) and just paste that. When you submit that it will embed the picture.
