How are you attaching studs to ceiling/walls?

Got a lot done this weekend. The last wall is pretty much done. The main counter top is seamed and the sink and cook top have been set in place. Wired the main counter outlet and the microwave outlet and the refrigerator outlet. I'm exhausted.. Cant wait for work tomorrow; It's easier at work than it is on my weekends these days. I got a picture of a light on in the bus.. weird to see it lit up, even if it is just a drop light (not permanent).

I got a lot done this weekend.

Friday night, I installed all the 12 volt LED lighting, the 12 volt fuse panel, the deep cell marine battery and the converter/charger. Saturday I took on the challenge of installing a larger 110/220 volt breaker panel. I had already pulled the wires to all the outlets weeks ago but i still needed to wire up the outlets. and the breaker panel. I also made my own 15 amp, 30 amp and 50 amp shore power adapters including the adapter for plugging in the generator.

Sunday, (today) I finished all of the laminate flooring throughout the bus, cut down the drawer to fit/slide under the gas stove (silverware only drawer). Then I created Natalie's bedroom guard rail. I wanted to take a break and do something fun for a while, so I took the extra time to personalize the guard rail for my princess!

Plumbing next weekend! stay tuned (not looking forward to plumbing at all).

Today marks a major milestone in #thelosercruiser build! Major construction is over! We have bedrooms, closets, kitchen, shower, water, electricity, plumbing and plenty of room! So glad this is just about over! I have been working on this almost daily now for 14 weeks. I still have little things to do here and there as well as painting the exterior while my wife and daughter Kianna, go crazy painting on the inside. #skoolie #busconversion #tinyhouse #almostover
