Re: the wait is over

The red color came in 12ft. wide. I covered 4ft. by 8ft. panels then screwed them to the walls. The beige color came in 6ft. wide.

Re: the wait is over

Got the shower walls lined and drain installed today. The drain is just stubbed through the floor for just right now. I think I will be moving onto the plumbing and electric. I'll finish the rest of the walls once I know I have all my lines ran. I'm trying to make sure I can get to all my water lines and electric fairly easy, by just taking a few screws loose out of a panel to gain access. I can do alot of things, but I'm no plumber. I have not been looking forward to this part of it.

Re: the wait is over

I got the faucets installed in the shower and kitchen sink. Also got the shower surround all caulked up. I went ahead and purchased a pex tool since I need to do work in the house eventually also. Got all my pex ran back to where I will have my water pump. I had to used water pumps however today I tried them out and neither worked. So a new water pump is on the list of things to get now. Nothing to exciting but a few pics.

Looks great.

Isn't pex great compared to working with copper?

Re: the wait is over

Pex is a wonderful thing! I might have a chance on the plumbing not leaking with it. I couldn't sweat a copper pipe and not leak if my life depended on it.

Thanks

Re: the wait is over

Got started alittle bit with the ac wiring, and a breaker box mounted. I decided to just go with a 100amp panel, mainly because it was cheaper to do so when you take in account this one came with breakers. Oh, it is intentionally mounted upside down too. I figured the electrons wouldn't mind doing hand stands. That and the door will open to the hallway rather the side of the bus. Also got some more walls covered around the shower.

Re: the wait is over

Regarding all the carpet covering the walls and ceiling, how flammable is the carpet you are using? Just wondering if it will ignite quickly if a flame or spark hits it. If it is flammable the flame spread will be very, very quick and I'd hate to see anyone placed in danger since escape would be pretty much impossible.

Re: the wait is over

I see your point. However, I really don't want to get into a debate on how safe my bus or anybody elses is. My bus still has the two escape hatches in the roof, the rear door will still be functionable, a side door, and front door. I'm not saying the carpet will never burn, but I will also only have only two possible open flames in the bus. Cooktop, and furnace. Which I plan on taking precautions on the end of my bus build before use. I guess it would be alot safer to leave it a metal tin box, but then I would have to wear ear plugs so I don't lose my hearing. I also work on high voltage powerlines for a living, maybe I shouldn't go to work tomorrow either because I might get hurt. The list goes on and on.

Re: the wait is over

I wouldn't be all that concerned about it.. carpeting like that generally doesn't catch fire very easily. If anything it'll char black before it actually catches fire.

Re: the wait is over

That is a good idea on the bathroom floor. I'd say I'm already alittle dissappointed on the laminate floor. Before I got the roof completely sealed up, I got alittle water inside in a couple areas. Needless to say, you can tell on a few of the seams where the water was sitting. I'm glad I went with the cheap stuff. I forsee in a couple years I will do something different. I like the fact of how easy it is to sweep out the mess though. I'm not a very big fan of vinyl floors, so not really sure what direction I will go later.
