We are buying the bus! I'm meeting with the school on Thursday to do the paperwork and arrange for delivery :)! We are really doing this! I'm so excited about the project that I want to tell everyone I meet about it (including the guy at the grocery store!) At the same time, we have a rather daunting task ahead of us if we want to move into the bus by June.
We had dinner with new friends yesterday - and one of them is a carpenter. He is happy and willing to share his building expertise with us. Depending on his work schedule (which is out-of-town work) he may be able to actually help in the construction. Otherwise, we will hire him on a consultant basis for a few hours to help us get started.
Just for the record. We are not living off-grid (yet). We will be plugged in: water, electricity, septic tank. We will continue to have all the modern luxuries (as per the appliances list above) minus a dishwasher (this is the one technology that we are willing to forgo, and want to forgo actually). Plus we'll always have tDog to help with the dishes:
