Ugh...was planning on putting a woodstove in mine, but extra seating won out. Seriously wishing I had stuck to my guns. Hmmmm.....

Re: Our Bus, Our Home

Just a little note to resurrect our post here. Jason had surgery on his neck to replace a herniated disc the 2nd week of December (two months ago) and this is the kind of thing that can sideline a project real fast. Nothing but good news though, Jason is pain free, back to work and just last night we spent a little time adding some more rock to the hearth and just cleaning/organizing, taking inventory of where we're at, it's been a long two and a half months but it's good to be back on the bus build, we'll post more updates soon.

Surgery? I hope you have good medical insurance. The only thing I could depend on is the Veteran's Hospital. Even then, I might die before they could fix me.

The stove is likely to be better secured than the contents of the cabinet, refrigerator or that pretty chotsky that is just laying on a table or counter just waiting for the opportunity to transform into a deadly flying projectile and become infamous simply because an inane object was responsible for the death of a human. Every one will be talking about it... "Did you hear about the guy who got killed by the chotsky?" It will get on youtube (because some one will catch it on camera) where it will become a media sensation.

That's funny, same thing I said when Jason read this to me, watch out for the deadly flying plate or bowl. As for the stove coming loose, that's not gonna happen, four 5/8" carriage bolts with custom 1/4" steel plate "washers" underneath provide for a secure installation.

We feel very fortunate to have the medical insurance...the permanent job is temporary as is the apartment we've downsized to, once we move into our bus and hit the road we'll be amongst the uninsured for the first time in decades...something to think about for sure.

Thanks Cal, yeah, back to work...this last weekend we spent a little more time prepping for the next stage. This kind of project is tough to get back on once you lose your head wind but I think we're starting to get it back. We picked up a used 4 burner magic chef stove/oven and a kitchen sink off craigslist and finished up the main kitchen cabinet design, gotta wait til the weekend again to get it built and installed but it looks like that's where we'll start on the interior once we button up the exterior walls. Wish we could work more but tax season is Jason's busy season.
