Oh and some of my last questions before were about electrical and you can probably tell in picture I'm wiring bus as if it was a house. Some day all add solar hopefully.

The opposite wall. Put fiberglass insulation in wall between walls help with sound and fill in holes the boards left. Will also trim out the windows. Can't remembered if I said before but the wood is pallets. Broke them down cleaned them then stain or paint. That is a LOT of work as a pose to go buy wood but its free

Question... In top right of picture below. What would be good to use for trim for the curves to hide my bad cuts?



For those that went like me and used 2*4s for frames instead of 1*2 or 2*3 did you come close to bus weight or did you still have room when a said and done?

Well that's all for now. Thanks for looking.
Hey guys sorry to re bring this back up but does any one have ideas or no of a product that can be used as trim to go around the curves at the top?

Thank you. We might try some lighter stain to kinda break things up but that's hard because we like the dark. We will see I guess.

Saw on another site (can't remember where) that they glued hemp rope as trim around the roof curve. Looked pretty nice. You could also use upholstery welting, if you can find some wide enough.

Right after I posted this I came across a skoolie I hadn't seen before. Rv bus for us if I remember right and they used the rope for there's. Really didn't look bad at all I thought.

Thanks for the reply

Long hot weekend but got the bunks ends finished now its touch ups and some trim maybe





I was doing good. Making cuts and watching my line. Made the cut and stood right up. I didn't counter balance the wood. Flipped up my level and tap measure go sliding. Level falls off in bus before I could think I set my saw down pushed down on the board.... Oh ya tape measure went airborne out the back door rolled under my trailer.. I learned I reset my saw horses but man duh
