Re: Wild Blue

Beautiful job on your bus. The ceiling is awesome. I wish I would have done wood instead of carpet.

Re: Wild Blue

Amazing bus!!!
Thank you for sharing your story, tips and solar info! I've been reading up on solar systems and I know we need it but I'm usually just scratching my head about it. Many thanks for the translation haha.
My question is do you remember the inner dimensions of your bus before your conversion and after? Did you lose a lot of living space with the insulation? When we get our bus, insulating is a high priority as we have family in MA and plan on spending time journeying across some of the Northern states, some of which will probably be during winter.
Again kudos on your bus, it looks line a great place to live!

Re: Wild Blue

All I can say is also wow! If you ever need another bus to work on, let me know. Mine sure needs some of your cabinetry magic.

Re: Wild Blue

Very nice work. I can appreciate the time that went into this. The details make good work look great. I usually spend 3 hours planning to every 1 hour working. I'm not even going to get into the "re-do's" that come along every so often. Thanks for sharing your work with us. Your bus has been an interesting work for me.
