Well, it's been a little bit, but that's ok. I gave myself a somewhat realistic goal of 4 years for this project and I think I'm still on track...
I'm seeing some progress at least.

I've always wanted to cut the back end of a bus to make a porch that looked like the end of a old fashioned train car.

Very cool. I'm betting the inside resembles the back porch in decor. This window design carries over well to the train style curtains.

Interesting how they carried that frame extension up on the back porch.

Here are the source photos: thanks!


My wife said that if I had a flat-front bus and converted it to look like the parlor car, she wouldn't make me sell it (our current plan). But she suggested that I wouldn't live long enough to make the conversion. Sigh. So I'll content myself with Photoshop and hanging out with the cool kids on this forum.

Just do the same thing in real life that you did in PhotoShop. Get a Parlour car...chop the back off...and tack it onto a bus! What could be simpler?

I got your porch, without photoshop;

Something like this, only with a little more imagination and artistic skill.


Appears to be a simple extension.


That's it, buy a shorty then expand it.


Effective, but a little to basic.


Not sure this is balanced.


Nice, but to fancy is like lipstick on a...


The basic fishing porch/ramp.


Side porch.


Shade?


The basic essentials.


Honorable mention.


A greenhouse. Honorable mention.


Is that a hatchback?


Honorable mention for height.


Honorable mention for height, again.


Wood build one.


Wood build two.


Grandma's bus.


Grandma's trailer, mural.


Is this one of our colorful individuals? That looks ok with straps.


Dude! I hope he got paid for that.


Ok, no photoshop. Sorry, got off subject again.
