Moving right along, doing the finish carpentry, hope to be done with that by Monday, then it's time to spend a day or two fishing off the electrical system outside 50A plug and dropping that to the panel and popping a few more outlets. Then later in the week it's time go to Glacier National Park about 4 hours away. And then it's time to spend 3-4 days next week doing the plumbing.

Anyway here is a shot of the completed washer dryer and pantry. (Expect for the Curtains). Was shooting for that rustic tiny house look

Can't believe a dream I have had for years is really happening

Thanks ,it's coming together nicely it's a lot of work and someting I would do again in a heartbeat.

No Glacier has a limit of like 19 feet on the going to the sun road, no way my 40' rig would fit.

I am going to live in it full time.

Plugged up the bus for the first time today, and finished off building the couch and put an arm on it.

Lighting and electrical work good.

Thanks NJsurf!

I am getting close to the finish line I put up curtains and did lots of little things. I just have some drains and minor plumbing projects to go, then leak test everything.

Still shooting for my Aug 1st deadline

Got the bathroom installed and working! Still working on the finishing touches shelving wall storage etc, (that wire rack needs to be moved down and out a bit).

The front (Kitchen/Living) is still a bit messy buy gives you an idea of what the final product will be.

Almost ready to move in !

Thanks guys for the awesome feedback. Been running around trying to knock down the to-do list, lots and lots of little projects here and there and everywhere.

I guess the forum decided to stop notifying me when someone posts to this thread.

Greetings All! I have pretty much hit the end of the road on the build, it's only small revisions and decor items from here on out. And then starting to the task of painting the outside and then downsizing and moving in.

I will post back when we are moved in and let the travels begin. It's been an awesome building this bus!

that looks great! Nicer than my apartment! Be sure to find a way to secure that chair when driving. That would definitely leave a mark.

Nice RV

Super cozy interior. You have a good eye for texture.

Is it more fun to build...or to travel?


edit: Just noticed you bought your bus after me and are done.

Thanks guys for the feedback, appreciate it.

You know it is a lot of fun to build, I love building things and have done so all of my life, never anything of this size before. But so is traveling so it's a good toss up.
