A 40 inch TCL Roku tv. Amazon link TCL https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07GB61TQR/

They actually sent me two when I ordered one, so I donít have to buy another for the master bedroom!

Thanks! Getting closer every day

Mom bought the floor we decided on, but no pics of that. Some to come eventually, but for now just know it a very dark brown wooden color.

Picked up a sheet of Ĺ inch plywood to do the last bunk wall, and another sheet of ĺ to do some stuff with in the master. Also got two six volt golf cart batteries to start building the bank of house batteries. (20Ah) IMG_2294.jpg when I have some time this week Iím gonna hook up the inverter and start getting things running, just to make sure they work.

Pretty minor, but I finally labeled my breaker panel. IMG_2320.jpg

I donít think OSHA would like me very much for how I got temp power to the box... IMG_2322.jpg (absolutely not leaving this hooked up, this was just so I could probe the outlets to know which was which)

A bus named Zero

A year ago today was my first day working on it! Hard to believe itís been a year already. Dad started to put the floor in in the front and hallway today and I think it looks superbIMG_2357.jpgIMG_2356.jpgIMG_2355.jpgIMG_2352.jpgIMG_2351.jpg

I mainly worked in the master bedroom, trimming out and insulating the walls (the hump is so big on the one side because I needed to make room for the wires) IMG_2346.jpgIMG_2345.jpg

Hooked up the batteries temporarily to test the inverter and all is well, except for the controller/remote which is busted somehow... IMG_2328.jpg

Done quite a bit over the past couple days. The bus door and a has a lock on it, more plumbing has been done, I put handles on the cabinets in the kitchen, i bought and installed a new sending unit on the fuel tank as the old one was broken, and hooked up the shore power to the inverter transfer switch.

Also got a pic in the sunset where it looks pretty cool IMG_2468.jpg
