Re: The Odd OX

don't think its water proof its just suppose to help wick up very small amounts like a little condensation i think. but with all good luck there will be no condensation and won't have leak problems. i just didn't want to put insulation or wood right against the metal that was all i didn't care what it was but the rosin paper was pretty inexpensive i think $11 for way more than enough to do the bus. i'm sure tar paper would be just as good or plastic.


well i'm off on the hunt to construction sites to salvage a little more wood so i can keep working away.

Re: The Odd OX

well i got more pictures coming soon!! I'm moving along pretty good on the frame work it helps when you lose your job and don't have anything else to do. Also knowing that being jobless mean moving to find another one so better hurry and get this beast mostly finished to hit the road.


a general question for everybody. window skinning................has anybody used the inner layer of metal from the ceiling for their window skins? i measured it and if i pull a piece down that does not have the lights in it, it will cover at least three windows. and that is all i needed to cover for right now anyways.

Re: The Odd OX

here are a few of the table and seats. both seats lift up for storage inside. I think I'll be making a table at some point that will fold down to make the whole area another bed but for now found this one at a yard sale and it fits just right

Re: The Odd OX

I love the use of cedar posts in your construction. I've got tons of cedar on my property, and have been stockpiling cedar posts to be used for projects. I hadn't thought of using it in the bus, but now you've got me thinking about it!

Re: The Odd OX

Whoa! At first the natural wood posts struck me as a unique way to use wood but the more I saw of them...it looks very cool! I think if you even stained them it could look even better. Very natural look. I don't want to get ideas from this .
