Re: Cloud 9: My first schoolie

Been researching as of late I am thinking i want to only invest once and I echo the I definitely want to pipe in the outside air supply for the stove sentiments of Smitty and others on this site. Ultimately I always get hung up on cost so although I will eventually have a wood stove right now were not full timing so it is less a priority and more a desire. I think most of those type of models are mobile home stoves. i love the old antique look of pot belly's and the like but there is an ever growing possibility we will be living in our bus so safety before looks. I checked out your build man the seahorse has changed looks awesome!

Re: Cloud 9: My first schoolie

Nice bus, I like what youve done with the interior so far. Pot belly stove would be nice! Maybe a good name would be cloud 9... just a thought!

Re: Cloud 9: My first schoolie

Ya, the stove I picked up does not have the intake and I decided that it just would not be safe. I'll look into building one myself it is more my style anyway and the foot print is an issue for me. It is the time of year I could unload that other stove and I will put it on CL soon. Any specifics you would advise on the construction or do you have a thread on the topic?


Thx by the way on the rig, were going for open but yet with open possibilities for change in the future I need to update some pics my camera died. I have added a few things this summer and am curious what some would think about my master bed room/bathroom idea.

Wood stove location. Anyone who has a stove currently have any idea's about where in my layout would be a good placement area. I was considering right next to the kitchen cabinet's.

Re: Cloud 9: My first schoolie

The latest construction, after a bit of camping we officially decided bunks were necessary. Here was my solution as of 11 PM last night!

Re: Cloud 9: My first schoolie

Here is a new look at the front of bus layout as I have changed. We have found it is much easier to use the futon with seat belts which makes for good traveling with the kids and a comfortable sleeping arrangement for us without sacrificing the openness of our layout.

Re: Cloud 9: My first schoolie

Wow, three bunks in one vertical space?! The space for each bunk must be pretty tight! Or is the bottom just a storage space? I feel a little claustrophobic in my bunks and I only have two (of course the bottom bunk of my bus is over a wheel well, so I do lose a foot or so due to that. I think your bus has a really clean, light look to it since you stuck with light or no stain on the wood and white paint. I used a darker stain since I somehow just don't like "blonde" looking wood, but I do like how yours seems to have a lot of light.

Re: Cloud 9: My first schoolie

Love the triple bunks... trying to convince the wife that we should add that to our plans since we have 5 boys. She isn't convinced that there will be room enough so we are in the "wait until we have the blank canvas" part of that decision.
