Well, not this year I suppose. Although I did see -45*C earlier this winter, for about two weeks. We were the coldest city in the whole country! It is true though, not as cold as usual. First time I ever heard of Canada importing snow!!!

Re: Smitty's Bus

Hi Smitty. My name is Radion.I am from Russia.I found the description of your modification of the bus in the Internet.I asked for some help to translate my message 'cause of my bad English.It was wery interesting to monitor for such modification.Please,if it is not very difficult for you, publish more photos- it is interesting. I am doing something the same but not of the bus but from small truck.You can see it here.

Wow, Smitty! You're kickin' butt with progress on your bus. Glad to see you have some help.
Looking forward to living vicariously through your progress.

No problem, I wouldn't accuse you of lying. I was just curious how much width you have with all that insulation in the walls. I must say, I am very impressed! That is still a decent amount of interior width. My bus measures 7'6" between the window frames without adding ANY insulation.

Re: Smitty's Bus

Is that sanded plywood on the walls? How thick is it? What will be the final wall treatment?

Re: Smitty's Bus

Looks good. Your really moving along on the bus. One question, How are your trusses attached to the support beam on the wall? Are you planning on attaching a board under the truss ends to help support? Ok that was two questions. lol

Re: Smitty's Bus

Smitty very cool bus. I look through your thread periodically to see if my idea would "work" or not. It's a great blueprint to use.
