Re: Our Bus, Our Home

WOW !!! That's impressive. I'm not far from Kelso. Just a few hour drive from Portland. May have to take a drive up your way sometime and see if you'd be willing to give a tour.

The buses I looked at a few weeks ago came from the Evergreen school district in Washington. I was amazed how little rust and corrosion there was on them.

Thanks.

Re: Our Bus, Our Home

Got a solid start to the couch/bed this weekend. Much more to come on this one. First piece of 1/2" plywood is laid in place, actual height of the couch will be as high as the back 6" of plywood. It slopes slightly upward toward the front so that when it lays out as a bed it'll be level.

I don't know about everyone else, but this built has been so much fun to watch that I'm dying to see what your plans are for the floor. The entire bus looks amazing.

Re: Our Bus, Our Home

Still working on the countertop, got it grouted and sealed but need to finish the caulking. We drilled a couple holes for the kitchen faucet and sprayer, had to use the pilot bit that came with the hole saw to drill the pilot holes, didn't have a masonry bit so I had to make due, what a bitch. I swear it took ten minutes per pilot hole and about a minute to cut the actual hole (diamonds make a big difference). While I was doing that, Janelle did some drilling of her own on the couch/bed supports. We burnt the midnight oil the last couple of nights (literally til 2 am two nights in a row and then midnight last night) and last night was dust boogers from hell after cutting 64 dados with a pair of table saw blades but it had to be done.





We found the kitchen faucet at an RV thrift store (new/used) at about a tenth of what we found anywhere else, gotta look around for the deals I guess. Now we just need to order some hudee ring clips for the retro butterscotch sink that Janelle fell in love with at another RV parts place we found on Craigslist. I'm typically the buy it new kind of guy but I'm often thankful for her drive to be frugal; the sink really ties the whole thing together.

You guys have really done a spectacular job. Cannot wait to see what's next! Love the angled sink/toilet to conserve space. Your penny back splashes look awesome! Thanks for sharing...and keep it coming!!
