Re: Swinada's Bus Conversion progress...

bathroom walls roughed in...


first hole in the wall.., for the waterheater







This is going to be a tight fit, good thing I only bought a 6 gal heater. Behind the waterheater is where the cooking range goes. I might have to extend the base a few inches.

It should be way cheaper up here, after all we have all the natural reserves up here. We get the oil and gas out of the ground for the rest of the province but we still most of the time pay more then the rest.
Actually, it makes perfect sense that you pay more. The stuff they pull out of the ground has to be transported a long way, processed, then transported all the way back up there. As soon as they build a erfinery up there, it might be different, but, I doubt you want your place looking like new jersey.

Re: Swinada's Bus Conversion progress...

we used to have a refinery (Taylor) and that didnt change a bit. But enough of that topic........this is about a Bus conversion and not about who is screwing us.

You're right. No point in moaning about the screwing we are all taking here, I suppose. Your bus looks like it's coming along nicely.

Re: Swinada's Bus Conversion progress...

you didnt see any waterlines because there is none yet. The blue thing is the airhose for the nailgun.
I rough in all the walls and appliances first then I decide where the waterlines, electrical cords, gas lines go. Once all that is installed I'll look at finishing the walls. Still lots to do, but I wanna get it ready for a short trip first week of August. Dont care if water and electrical will be hooked up by then, as long as everything is secure. We can use blue buckets for water and use the coleman for cooking outside or the campfire. we have been tenting for a few years now so the bus will be just a big tent for that first trip.

Big family = Big Fridge (its not that big, but as big as it will fit in to a skoolie with a low ceiling height.)
