Here is the beginning





It took a few days to get from full seats to bare floor and ceiling.

How exciting! Reminds me of that neat feeling i had as the seats came out and the space was revealed. The delightful space Just big enough for all my needs. I recently decided the rear 12ft are my shop area with bench and all my tools. ahhh a true sanctuary indeed. Enjoy just sitting at the shop bench about as much as i am capable of enjoying something. lol Looking forward to seeing your direction and style. Thanks for sharing.

Where you guys at? We're in Conway and are about 90% through our conversion. I would recommend Instagram if you are looking for inspiration for your build. Here's ours: http://www.instagram.com/naturalstatenomads We also have a blog, but have done an absolutely horrible job of keeping it updated.

We are in Marion, right by West Memphis. But my wife is from Conway and we are there often visiting her family. I would love to come by sometime and see your bus. I just followed you guys on Instagram and it looks great!

Thanks man! I'm game, we'll be here until December 26th then we are hitting the road to live full-time in our bus. DM me on Instagram if you guys are headed to Conway and I'll shoot my # to you so we can get together.

I have a friend who's from Marion. He's a Livingston if you happen to know any of that family out there.

Thanks for the kudos! We have put in a ton of work and are ready to get it on the road.

Another Arkansas here!

My wife and I live in Fairfield Bay! About an hour north of Conway. I'm about 10 months into my conversion. Going slow but trying to do it right. Can't wait to get on the road. Would love to meet others in the area.

We have a six window short bus. 480 watts of solar. Composting toilet with shower and on-demand propane water heater. 2000 watt pure sine inverter with ac outlets throughout.

Here's a link to build pics (hope the link works):

Regards!

Ross

I'm 90 min away from Fayetteville, in Oklahoma...
But, I'm 15 minutes away from AR/OK state line.

Looking at a place on Friday that's 18 minutes from me now... So, that'll be 3 minutes into Arkansas. (20 acres in the country with FHU)
