nice. Keep it up! Feels good to get stuff done.
I'm saving up the pieces to start assembling the interior.

Don't save up stuff.... Just start. Do a bathroom or a bedroom or a kitchen. Saving just delays the start.

I'm working on the bus every day. But my income is $0.
Been laid off for two years. Thankfully I own my home and had some savings.
So- Until I actually have wood and materials, I'll just continue doing bodywork, mechanical repairs, and tinkering.
I'm about to be patching the holes left in the roof from removing the leaking and broken Emergency hatches. I have some 14ga plate cut, and am trying to borrow a welder. Then I'm paneling in the windows. I get the steel for free for the most part so thats great especially at this stage.
My bus is a true low budget build, but I'm not going to skimp on anything either.

I just checked out your blog. You and I seem to share some views of the jobs market, for sure. We are in very similar situations, Zephod. Luckily we both know- Don't Panic, and to know where your towel is.

I paid for a years insurance on my motorhome conversion with state farm. 3 months down the road, they welsh on the deal and say they're not going to insure my motorhome any more. Wait for it - because I don't have an oven cook top combo. Hell, I don't use that in my normal house. I cook solely with a steamer, crock pot and microwave. Have you ever heard anything so ludicrous? Needless to say I'm looking at other insurers and will transfer all my policies awsu from those buffoons

Problem solved. I changed insurance companies. No idea why the guy at mine was being such an idiot. Check my blog for exact details but I had two letters... One dated 12-23 saying I had until 13-1 and one on 26-12 saying here's a refund. My insurance guy was urging me on to do stuff that didnt need doing yet right up til yesterday! Something fishy there
