Conversion almost complete!

Here's our rig. Our beloved is almost finished in time for the beautiful PNW Summer. I'd love to get people's input, thoughts, comments as it will be departing our family soon. We think we did a nice job, but we're biased of course.

simply mothering

O.k. we are very jealous after looking at those pictures. That is a great job of woodwork with the pallets and a lot of great craft ideas for the whole family to be involved with too! Those will be great memories for the kids as they become adults and decide how they will live. Congratulations! I hope you enjoy the rest of the time in it just as much and pass it along to the next lucky family or person to enjoy! Too bad you can't rent it out like you did your house.

OMG, you guys did an incredible job on that bus. It's very unique and absolutely lovely. I think this may be one of the best conversions I've seen. Well done!!!

Thank you everyone! I think we 're a little nervous right now, wondering if the price is appropriate, but getting such wonderful feedback really helps. And Yes! There is a lot of heart put into this rig!!!

Thank you! We will make sure to enjoy the last summer days on the water. Unfortunately a winter in MN would have meant a different insulation plan... We made it to match the coastal weather.

The property is a friends of ours. We were able to stay for up to 3years as caretakers for both it and a community access. We originally were going to do so for the full length of time and then purchase our own property. However, all of our family is back in MN and after finishing medical school, we believe that's the best place for us.

Yeah, minus 40* sound much better than the beach. J/K. You have a beautiful family and bus.
