Re: Smitty's Bus

Don't forget to accent the bus with some gun ports along the sides and back too. And a turret on top would be a nice touch also.

Nice entertainment center! This would call for an awning made of camo netting!

Re: Smitty's Bus

I'm not sure that smitty can lift that gun... what with his having no knees (picking on short peoples), thanks to BFTL, and no back...not sure how that happened. ^.^

Wow! Talk about adding "window treatments"?!?!

Looks like THIS is really what Smitty's planning to build in that shed...

Re: Smitty's Bus

Ah but Smitty, you're going to lose all that space you could have used for insulation. The way you go on about that stuff, I figured you would have put in enough to have like R500!

Just teasin' ya!

Re: Smitty's Bus

I like it. Most of the time I'm standing, I'm in the 30% of the bus right along the center. Keeping all that headroom makes huge sense.

Re: Smitty's Bus

I had the same idea for stepped rafters, but with more insulation in the middle and less of a "step" at the sides. The space above the cabinets would have a fore-and-aft cooling duct with outlet vents at appropriate places, sort of like BFL Johnny has is his ceiling. Intake vents would be at toe level, and efficient electronics/computer fans would gently lift air through a riser duct hidden somewhere in the walls. This would be kind of like having a concealed ceiling fan.

The business end of any air conditioning or swamp cooler could cool the air in the riser, so the floor-level air would be cooled as it was lifted to the overhead vents.

In cold weather, either the fans would be reversible, or there would be an alternate "faller" (as opposed to "riser" ) that would take in the warm air near the ceiling and discharge it at your feet. The core from an under-seat heater or other heater core could be in the "faller" so the fans would circulate warmed air when the engine is running.

The rest of the space further back above the cabinets could be used for wiring ducts for low-voltage, high-voltage, photovoltaic and antenna wiring.
