We are new here too! No worries...
The window coverings are black out curtain liners covered in fabric. I strung picture hanging wire along the top hem and wrapped the wire around existing window screws to hold them in place. I sewed 3 extra-strong mini magnets into the bottom hem to hold them up to the ceiling out of the way when not in use. Its daylight til midnight in the summer so we needed the black out curtains, but didn't want to lose the open window concept.
We don't have any real plumbing. We use a 5 gal water jug with a hand pump for the sink and drains into a bucket underneath. The toilet is a self contained porta potty - we havent used one of these before so a little apprehensive to the clean out process. We'll see how that goes once we've started using it.
The inside color made a huge difference for us! I like the funky feel of it and the institutional grey was depressing. So, the roof and back/front upper panels are next for paint, maybe a lighter yellow or something soft?
Hello, we were granted a reprieve from the rain for a couple of days so we decided to take Bumper to the beach for a day trip for her maiden voyage. She ran great, I have fixed the mechanical issues and once her water temp got up to 180 degrees she ran smooth. She got up to 55 mph no problem, although our roads are defiantly not freeways so we stayed at around 45 mph. We finished the exterior paint, yesterday and of course it rained just a few hours after we finished, I hope the paint isn't ruined. I also removed the "big bug eyes" the mirrors from the school bus so the driver can see what or who is in front of the bus. We still have some work to do, but all the current things are complete. Next is to build walls for the bathroom, we're going to use recycled wood.
Here are some pictures and a video at the beach on Saturday 3.12.16
