Re: Our New Home


This is what we started with, reminded me so much of our Dutchman its scary... they had the back windows removed with vents in them, so the floor is hatched... so here comes the fun...
the rust in the back....





The culprit



Paint it

tarpaper

insulation lathing, then sheeting

Re: Our New Home

Got another section of floor done, the bus is also the storage for all the crap we have accumulated and going to find a hole to stuff it somewhere, along with the building supplies it tight.... haven't brought the camera in a couple of days, but its nothing new, rust all over, rusty nail projectiles, im sure ya'll know whats going on.. buts it coming along, I'll post-a-pic when the dust settles.... till then I will keep teaching the wife and I some more colorful language.... cant wait till this parts over...

As you are a bus owner, I find it almost blasphemous that you would suggest to buy an RV.

If I had had a Sticks and staples RV when I went into a ditch the other day, it would have been ruined.

Check out page 30 on my thread.
