Hello from AK!

After several months of work to get our Bushop ready I thought it was time to introduce ourselves on this site. My wife Nancy and I picked up a 1989 35 foot Blue Bird with the 5.9 gen 1 Cummins and the ill fated AT-545. We will be working on the conversion at some point in the future but it needed to serve a different purpose before we are ready. We needed shop space in a bad way and until we can do all of the dirt work required for the foundation we needed a place for all of our tools. So through several discussions purchasing a bus seemed the best route for our needs. Now that all of our tools are in it I'm contemplating on how we might go about converting the back and storage bins into a mobile shop and living space. Much work ahead of us but we're looking forward to building a mobile tiny home of our own.

Cool bus. I'd put a hefty wall behind the "cab" if driving is in the plans.

Hey thanks! The bus is parked for the foreseeable future so I won't have to worry about my tools, for now... Really we needed the space for everything and it needs to be movable since we don't have a lot of land that's flat. We have 2.5 acres in Kenai but almost all of it is wetlands. Right now the bus is just a shop, with thoughts of a mobile shop in a few years time. I'll start a build post and formulate a game plan as time goes on.
