|ttDOG sunbathing by the lake|
|tCarpenter using creative ways to ensure that the shelves are perpendicular|
(another challenge of working with the curved ceiling of the bus)
|Ceiling before the panelling|
|Getting ready for the panelling. Covering the appliances and countertops.|
|Method #1: Glueing the panels to the ceiling.|
|Method #2 working well.|
|Voilà! Beautiful :)!|
|tDog hanging out. The back of the bus (emergency door sign)|
before the panelling.
|The back of the bus panelled.|
|The shelves that run along both sides of the bus. |
Held up with metal rods that need to be covered up...
|Instead of using pre-cut wood from the big box store,|
we decided to go with a more natural material.
A felled tree from a nearby forest...
|There it is! |
And that's me holding up the panel covering the wiring for the lights.
|The metal between the windows are covered with wood.|
The metal casing for the plugs and switches will also be covered by wood (below).
Note: the grey covering is temporary. All switches and plugs will be white.
|Our cast iron sink has a brand new faucet |
(that I got from Craig's List for a great price!)
|The bus has a real door!|
|Door from the inside.|
|This is the bench where the driver's seat was. It can be removed so |
the seat can be put back when the bus needs to be driven.
|It is in fact a chest to store mitts, toques, scarves |
and doubles up as a bench for putting on shoes :)!
|Covering the metal along the front of the bus.|
|The bathroom walls have been covered up.|
|The inside of the bathroom has been insulated and cedar panels will line the walls |
(as cedar is naturally resistant to water).
|Meeting with tPlumber about the shower. We have finally decided to scrap the barrel idea and have|
ordered a shower base. So now we will have two planters (the metal one and this plastic one!)
|Plumbing under the sink|
|Plumbing under the bus.|
|The land is treed...|
|So the landlord cut some trees and flattened the area with a tractor. |
The bus will sit inside below the trees (to the right of tBOY).
|Phew! That was a lot of work! But luckily there is always time for some lunch.|
