Got a lot more framing done today! Natalie's room is pretty much all framed out. Her Bunk bed is ready for plywood. There is going to be a lot of finish work to be done once all the panels go up. Plumbing and electrical as soon as I get the bathroom framed in.

I got most of the paneling and insulation done on the master bedroom; same goes for Natalie's bedroom. I am trying to be as conservative as possible when it comes to material, which is why nothing is completely finished. Buying the materials as the funds come in is our only option, which is a pain but I will live.

I pulled the PEX water main from the master bedroom, bathroom and to the kitchen. The electric on demand water heater will be installed under the sink, when I start working on the kitchen.

Pulled 120V wiring for the Master Bedroom AC, the roof mount AC (still need to cut a whole in the roof to mount it), all the bedroom, kitchen, bathroom and living room outlets. I also installed the breaker panel which will be wired when I get closer to the end of the build.

All of the interior lighting will be on a 12V battery system and I will pull the wire for that after all the majority of the bus is complete; mostly because I am not sure where we want the lights to go.

I didn't feel like a got a lot done this weekend, even though I worked on it all day Saturday and All day today. Cutting the paneling is a pain, especially cutting the outlets out while also dealing with the shape of the bus!
