Big Bertha video update thread

Hey guys,

It's been a while! We're still alive, we still live in a bus, and it's awesome.

I started a youtube channel because I like working with video.

Check it out!

Thank you for those videos!
I watched all the first one, and ran out of time for the second one... I'll have to come back.

Lot of great ideas!
Really like all the cabinets and drawers.
That being said... I wish I had an ikea nearby

Best wishes on the newest delivery!

I want to know how you got a full size washing machine in there, I didn't think the doors were wide enough for a machine that size.

Also, with regards to the trough tub..... I'm presuming you cut a hole in the bottom and put in a drain?

(I only ask because all the pictures in your build thread are broken)

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.

Yeah, I'm pretty disappointed that I linked images from Facebook. Bad idea.

Here are some pics of us getting the washing machine through the door. It barely fit, with damage. The front area was the problem, both the bus door and the "house" door. But it wasn't any worse than moving big furniture into bad apartments.

It also barely fit through the kitchen doorway, which at the time was sans trim. Now there is trim. I don't think it would fit without the trim coming off. I'm captain foresight for sure.

Yep. I don't have any pictures of the tub being installed, so you're not missing anything.

Really makes me realize how much space I'm wasting... But for a single person, my plan works for me.

That's the advantage of being single and doing something like this.... you can be a little more lenient with the space. I had a back bedroom set up but now I'm just gonna hang a hammock, that will free up some space to use elsewhere plus if I unhook the hammock I can have a small desk area back there.

Nice! I like saving videos like these for my wife so I can pump her up for living in a bus. But then she always watches videos like these and finds the few things I don't want to make space for (like a full size washing machine). Really great bus though, awesome use of space, I love the idea of making the drivers seat into an office area(as well as the neighboring garage).
