The great part about the office being in the front is that it's behind the only solid door, well away from sleeping quarters. I can pretty much do whatever I want up there within reason and not wake anyone up.

Having a family onboard with you that certainly makes sense. Since it's just going to be me and my dog aboard Jasmine it won't be as big a deal.... but at the same time it would free up space that I would have used for that in the back and make use of space that would otherwise be wasted.

I do like having the solid door in that front bulkhead, I'm planning to do that on Jasmine if there is enough room... insulate that wall and keep the solid door closed unless I'm doing something up there, then there will be less volume to heat/cool.

If you have some pics of how that area is set up I'd like to see how you did it... I remember seeing it on the video but kinda foggy on the details.

As a level 1 burglar, Bilbo got a pony when he accompanied the level 60 dwarves on the Smaug the Dragon raid. Those powerlevelers probably invited him solely so he could trigger fellowship attacks for them.

Love love love! Thank you, raised 2 boys as a single mom, never lived in a bus but took them camping a lot and lived in a small house which never felt too small. Your boys are precious and had me laughing and tearing up at times!

$261.52 for the metal tiles. They don't go all the way back though.

12 sheets of 1/4" birch plywood @ $20/sheet = $240

I don't remember what the furring strips cost. 8' 1x2s, we used maybe 100 of them, about a dollar each.

Do your own calculations for insulation, we used spray foam kits and they were expensive nightmares.

Around $650 including supplies, screws, paint etc.
