Speakeasy Mobile Glass Shop

Ever since I found out there were people turning buses into homes I have dreamed of such an opportunity. Now that dream has come to fruition and I am excited about the work and creative flow that has consumed me completely. Speakeasy glass consists of me Ezekiel and my girlfriend Kait. On the 23rd of June 2009 Kait and I purchased a 1988 Bluebird Tc2000 with 125,000 original miles on a 5.9 Cummins diesel for $2,800. We plan to create a living area and glass shop so that we may be free to travel and work as we please. I would like to extend my gratitude to the creators and co-creators (Everyone who posts) of this site for all of the knowledge and tips so freely shared. Most of all I would like to thank Kait the love of my life for sharing a dream and making it a reality. Peace and blessings from us to you.

Re: Speakeasy Mobile Glass Shop

Got the new shop built last night. I took a six by three foot set of storage lockers and bolted them down. Installed a fan, and a table top that folds up. still need to build tank and kiln housing.

Posting pics is easy, but the BB code for it doesn't work with pictures hosted on MySpace. You will need some kind of photo hosting account such as Photobucket. Once you have that it's easy. Photobucket has a drop-down box under each picture you upload that has all the information you need, including the [img] wraps. Just copy and paste into your message.

The code below is for a picture at my photobucket account. But you wouldn't type in the asterisks that are in the brackets. I just did that to keep this page from showing a picture.

BTW, nice bus! I like that flooring!
