I bought the Nuwave cooktop too. Really like it. Luckily, most of my pans worked with it so I didn't have to buy any new ones. I used mine the first time at Halloween. Cooked spaghetti for a group of folks. The best deal I've found is at Bed, Bath, Beyond. It is $99. Use their 20% off coupon and walk out with one for $80 plus tax.

Bansil and everyone here, reading this felt like reading a novel! Your bus looks awesome, making me want to get my own soooo bad!
There is not one thing I wasn't impressed with, from the color scheme to the simple ingenuity of some of the builds, to the craftsmanship for the more demanding fixes.
All your pictures are great!
Happy New Year, Everyone!

Could not agree more...no use building it if it doesn't bring a smile to your face!

Okay,
no beer was harmed today....I did run out though

good thing I had some wine to fix that dilemma

so update:

SO we finally have an update about the bathroom/bedroom area

as previous pictures showed the tub was setting in place and there was no frikin room....

so what are we to do?

Tear it all out and re-do it

I did the toilet/water heater and plumbing right after I was done with chemo to get on the road for our yearly trip to the beach.

Yes I AM RIPPING IT ALL OUT(UNDER BUS) AND RE-DOING IT

SO I am out maybe $50 total and I will reuse what I can...dugh...

so I demo'd some surrounding areas and me and Lisa realised this was not going to work...so out comes the toilet, and cut off drain pipe, make another 4 inch hole on driverside of bus, remount toilet mount and walla~





and otherside



Did you know that pink anti-freeze will freeze at -5*? I didn't and neither did this damn mouse



and the sumbeotch chewed up my blankie

so I have a hole to fix and plumbing to run...here is where we are now!





next weekend?

plumbing and plumbing....no we need a dresser draw "custom set" ... that means lets break out the saws and go "rustic" wood carving...stay tuned YA'LL

The term we use in the software industry is "iteration". You are simply improving upon your existing code base. I see nothing wrong with the bathroom iterations.
