Big news: The bus will no longer reside on the land that we have shown you. Negotiations re: where its new home will be is in process (super stressful? Yes!) For now, tBOY and I are just so relieved to not have to deal with the previous landlord anymore. How bad was it? Well, let's just say that by the end, we preferred to be without land rather than to be on his land. More on that in another post.
For now. I'll just give you a photo update of our soon-to-be home.
|The bus has been moved off the previous #$@! landlord's land|
and into tCarpenter's backyard.
(Can you spot tDog jumping around?)
|This is the bathroom - framed. It awaits plumbing which will hopefully happen this week.|
|The counters have been built. On the right side is the stove, sink and washing machine.|
On the left is the bathroom, fridge (not in photo) and dryer.
|Remember the wheel wells? They add an extra design challenge to the bus layout...|
|Voilà the panelling along the side of the bus. For now, there is a trim on|
the top of the panels and one on the bottom will be made as well (doesn't it look great?!)
|tCarpenter making measurements for the insulation of the skylight.|
|Panelling is then added along the side of the skylights. It will eventually have a |
glass shelf along the panelling to house glasses, plants etc. - while still allowing the light in.
|This beautiful structure is the clothes closet that is above where the bed will be |
(the house-looking structure at the back of the bus).
It has been panelled and a shelf has been built.
|tBOY helping to remove the old caulking along the outside of the bus.|
It's old and crusty and water is seeping through :(!
|tCarpenter putting in the new caulking that will hopefully keep us dry.|
|Me varnishing the panelling.|
|tElectrician at work.|
There you have it folks. While writing this, tCarpenter has been building and installing shelves that go along both sides of the bus - above the counter in the kitchen and along the sides of the bed. tBOY will be meeting with our new (current) landlord to discuss land rental tonight.
Even though it feels like our lives have been taken over by the bus project, it hasn't. We still have adventures...
|We went on a camping trip to the Sunshine Coast|
|Riding and hanging out with these hooligans.|
|Riding at the Whistler Bike Park...|
