Re: The Dirtybus...

Got the other seat for the dinette done... Need to do some grinding, weld some nuts on the inside of the square tube to fasten the diamond plate and paint...

Also got the toe kick installed on the galley and started cutting materials for the hearth under the wood stove, but ran out of welding gas...

Gonna start cutting and mocking up the bunk material...

The aluminum tool box is there for mock up of the fridge... It'll be cut up for use as cabinet doors...

Re: The Dirtybus...

Got the stove mounts welded to the galley... Had to work under the awning because of the rain... The fridge is mocked up... Now I'm gonna work on the upper cabinets...

Re: The Dirtybus...

Thanks for the comments guys...

Got the rough in done on the upper cabinets... There's another one above the large window on the passenger side as well...

Started the rough framing for the head... I'll try and get some better pics...

Still have a lot of framing to do, but the main structures are coming along nicely... Gonna be a lot of little things that don't show a whole lot of progress happening real soon...

Re: The Dirtybus...

Here's some better lighted pics...










Pulled the galley out to add a little more...






Then added some diamond plate above the cabinet doors...

Re: The Dirtybus...

I only have 20' of living space behind the driver seat... Spent way to much time drawing up floor plans to make everything work... I knew that the galley and the head had to go where they are based on black and grey tanks, the passenger side was already taken up by the fuel tank... As soon as I started building and setting things in place, it was easier to fit everything else...

Re: The Dirtybus...

That's twice the room I have...and the reason I'm adding on a "back porch" and roof rack. Gotta' be really frugal (and creative) with my space usage. But then there's a reason why they are called "Shorties", right.
