Maybe that is why he didn't insulate? Milder climate? I have had mine a month and have gotten hardly anything done it feels like. Of course i will be gutting mine and spray foaming it.

P.S. I like the way you angled the cabinets and counter tops.

I like that angled counter flare too - is that the bathroom behind it?

why do people have to criticize?
I don't think he asked for recommendations on what or how to do anything. . .
Thanks for sharing pics. Counters look good.

3 weeks? We've been working for 6 months, using store-bought cabinets, and you're way ahead of us! Looks great, man.


I'm dying take our rig on a shakedown camping trip but we're still a few projects away.

Sorry I haven't responded to anyone I don't seem to be getting notifications. Ill try to answer some questions. The bathroom is split on both sides of the hall. I'm not going to be living in the bus, so wasting my time and money on insulation didn't seem worth it. It'll get used 3 times a year maybe 4. I've been in residential framing, and remodeling for over 20 yrs. Lets see.....no plans to sell, but ill gladly take your 18k ���� thanks for the support, and kind words everyone.

3 weeks?! I think we might have the winner of the fastest conversion contest!

I am loving the cabinets and the simple barn door style cabinet doors. Easy, simple, and fast to build, not to mention beautiful!

I have seen 7 trailers built in fours at Elkhart
It’s interesting

I've always wanted to build a tiny house on a trailer, but I've always wanted to do a bus as well, and this opportunity presented itself first
