Good progress.

I like seeing people using good brand tools. I saw a Makita cordless drill.

Got a little more work done on the outside, not much but I have pics!!! It's slowly coming together. Gonna have to put a different door on it sooner rather than later too. We're thinking about one of those full view glass security doors. The opening seems to be 36" x 80"


Just have the corners on the front and rear corners and windows to skin up then the bus will finally be enclosed once again.

Bus is fully enclosed, and I was finally able to get enough consecutive sunlight after work to put the door on. Fits like a glove after I trimmed the bottom step back a little.

Little bit of progress. Had some fun finishing the subfloor yesterday when it was 17 degrees here. Got a little propane heater going and it warmed up the inside of the bus real nice. Next I'll be putting in 120v electric service and framing up the walls...

That is a serious volume of floor insulation. What are your plans for the roof & walls? If anything like the floor, you will wind up driving an Igloo cooler that will make it easy to maintain a stable temp come heat or sleet.

Nice work.

Yeah, Its going to have 1/2" less in the walls and most likely the same as the floor in the ceiling. My old lady gets cold easily and I don't like listening to whining so I'm going overkill to make a nice warm bus for her...
