I haven't posted since 2006. We bought our bus, converted it, moved to AZ and have lived here since.

Now our gypsy feet are pulling us back to the East Coast. Before we had 2 kids, 3 dogs and 9 cats that ALL lived on the bus. Now it is just us two, 2 dogs and 2 cats. So time to remodel the interior to make it more spacious for us!! I am so jazzed. Instead of 3 months to get ready, we have a little of 16 months. New adventure, new name for it, new facelift and renovation work.
There are things we did not get to finish last time. Some of the wood is still raw, not stained or painted. We never got to finish painting the inside. Not enough cabinets in the bedroom area (we were too worried about making room for the kids and all the books since we homeschooled)
Right now we just can't decide on whether to move the door or not. The thing I like about the skoolie is that it IS a skoolie. I like the bus door look to it. The problem is I want to sit next to/near hubby when he drives. I am the navigator and map reader for him. The metal part of the door is in great condition. The material covering the middle of the door, not so much. The door has air leaks and I am not happy with that.
We thought about moving the opening to the center of the bus, but to tell you the truth, I like my cabinets in the kitchen the way they are, and like I said, I like the look of the skoolie.
What did any of you do to the door if you left it in place to help with the air leaks? Fixing the material??
Looking forward to seeing more of all of you
