This weekend we framed our partition walls. We used a combination of lumber connectors and pocket screws to fasten studs to the inside walls of our bus.
Early morning planning session
The next morning greeted us with some great fog
We happened to be parked next to a guy who makes chalkboards out of recycled fences. He runs his operation out of this shipping container, and we get to use this convenient little pad of asphalt in front of it. Nice little work space.
Starla begins and ends each workday by vacuuming. It's not a compulsion, it's a ritual.
Oh by the way, she's fourteen weeks!
Before we left, I went around and drilled extra holes so that every stud had two screws on each side of every anchor point. In retrospect, bugle head wood screws weren't the right choice. Still, the studs are rock solid.
That's all that was on our list this weekend, and we finished just in time. There is a long itinerary for the next couple weeks of things to research, parts to order, plans to draw... my son's first birthday is next weekend, so we're not doing any bus work. When we do get back to it, it will be time for utilities: electrical, plumbing, plus EXHAUST!!!! Can't wait.

I hadn't heard of that before now, we checked them out when we were at Lowe's though. I know we want something low-flow, so we might go with one. I'd be interested to hear how you like yours.
