First and rather importantly because seriously who doesn't love a good nights sleep we have the bedroom. We didn't do anything fancy, just a queen size bed in the back of the bus. There is storage underneath the bed with basic lift up wooden planks that are honestly a pain to move now that the mattress is down but it is a great storage spot for items we want with us but may not use all the time.Read More
First of all we sold the house... okay well not so much sold yet but it is under contract, today is the objection deadline and as long as it appraises we will close in three weeks!

Currently we are in the process of moving boxes to a storage unit and will be staying with my family for a month or so while we finish the bus!Read More
So the bus is very much still a construction zone primarily because we are waiting until closing to continue working so that we can pay for all materials and labor with cash.

We did rent a small storage unit.
