Oh... BTW- I noticed the composting toilet (an air-head, right?). Good choice. I've used one in my GMC for years and have never thought of going 'back to black.' ...although the better half might say something different when it comes to sorting the piss from the ****. *shrug* ;)

Mad skills there you guys. The entrance door is a great idea and living at the "petting zoo" will be so cool for the kidsters.

It's been awhile! Much has happened, it feels like we've been moved in for years, and it also feels like we moved in yesterday. Hard to explain. I'll let the pictures do the talking.

I hope to update this thread more frequently with actual real-life moments, obviously we cleaned before taking these pics. Real life is hectic and messy 90% of the time. We've been trying to figure out efficient systems for keeping everything clean, organized and maintained, so it's been slowly getting better. Credit for organization goes to my wife.

I have mucho pictures of the in-between from the fresh paint job to present day. If there is anything anyone is curious about, please ask and I'll post everything relevant. I have way too many pics to post all at once!

The bus is about 90% complete at this point. We still have a good deal of work to do, and I'll post updates as we complete things, but at this point this thread is more about completed bus life than the conversion process!

Stay tuned~

We do have stops, they're actually magnetic child locks that can be turned off.

Haha, no, not traveled. This is our house. We live in this bus full time. It's not going anywhere anytime soon!
