Thanks, yeah that outlet and one next to it are protected by a GFCI breaker, outlets are just too fat to cram into the low profile space. I figure it won't be that bad if it trips, our load center is only across the "hallway", literally one step away. I decided to go this route after cramming one into the bathroom.

Re: Our Bus, Our Home

I've enjoyed the work you have done so far, really is an inspiration, I will be putting tile on our counter tops checked out solid granite countertops they wanted $800. for 8 feet total. I am just made of money or that's what everyone around me thinks, lol, I wish it was so. Thanks for the great photos.

Thanks, yeah, granite would be cool but the cost and the look wasn't right for us, we wanted something we could set hot stuff on, maybe a pot of soup or something off the woodstove or something. We've had tile in the past just didn't like the lighter grouts, seemed like even if you seal em and kept it clean, the grout always found a way of staining especially near the sink and stove. We also had a problem with cracking wherever someone might be liable to sit. So this time, being that it's a school bus, we'll be using a dark "pewter" grout for the majority and we purchased a couple tubes of matching sanded caulking that we'll be using for the rest, nothing worse than cracked caulk.

Re: Our Bus, Our Home

I agree the dark grout will work best, I will have to keep that in mind or I should start to write this stuff down as I forget when I am in the store and buy the wrong items and have to return it later, you know another trip to town, and more money spent on the bus.

Re: Our Bus, Our Home

We built our countertop out of 1/4" ply glued & nailed to 3/4" ply = 1" plywood. That stuff looks awesome, probably woulda used it if I'd known about it or where to get it, weight and vibration/bumps are always a consideration in these things.

Re: Our Bus, Our Home

Very nice looking build. Really looking close at your bus. I know it's been awhile since you did the roof's paint job, but I want to mix up the hytech additives as well (to save on the shipping handling). What type of primer did you use on your roof? and what type of paint is good to add the hytech stuff to? I plan to roll it on.
BTW your wood stove is DOPE. Thanks in advance.
