Introductory Formalities Well here we are again, another premature blogpost,.  But I feel monthly updates are necessary, even if the progress doesn’t feel satisfying to myself.  Also I’m really bored at work, and fear time itself will stop if I don’t find somethign to engage myself.  This past month I have been jumping between quite..

Introductory Formalities Much like every other month, this past month has been an eventful month full of slow but noticeable progress.  I have excuses to excuse my lack of progress but excuses don’t change the reality so we’ll carry on.   To my lack of surprise I was full of crap when I said the..

6 Months ago last May I constructed an awesome looking green door out of 2×6’s and RV scrap window I had laying around.  I knew it wasn’t perfect but it was a hell of a lot better than the existing doors.  It was a fun project and I loved the hell out of it.  Recently,..

December 2016 Was a total shitshow, my work was busier than ever, and coming home to work on the bus in freezing temperatures was pretty brutal.  I went ahead and got myself a timer outlet which will turn a space heater on an hour before I get home every day, this increased my daily productivity..

As of today, all updates are current.  I will no longer date related categories and dates to these posts unless they are post-dated. Are there really going to be 4 parts to the Insulation Chronicles?   I have no idea but I don’t think there will be more than 4. Most recent picture Here’s a..

How Much Metal? In the sketchup post I mentioned that I logged all the lengths needed in accordance to my build plan.  I calculated I’d need about 500-600feet total.  Assuming I will waste 20%  I then decided that I should probably buy 800 feet just to be safe.  However the price break I got at..

Google Sketchup is a phenomenal service.  I would love to have dynamic parts in the free version, but I suppose I will survive.  I use it by making geometric shapes (mostly quadrilaterals) and grouping them together. My plan The great thing about Sketchup is all of the measurements!  So I can essentially break down various items..

I began insulating the walls in October, I was soo happy to begin this project. The Layers Here’s how it’s all gone down. I got the first layer of insulation in the bus. What you see here is a 1 inch of polyiso with a reflectix radiant barrier between the insulation and the outer metal…

So I completely forgot about my XPS insulation struggles, but basically I looked all over Washington for about 3 weeks for 1/2 Inch XPS extruded polystyrene insulation.   It was a huge struggle but I finally found it.  Why did it have to be 1/2inch XPS?  Well I didn’t raise the roof of my bus..

The Return to Electronics I was both excited and terrified to install a backup Camera as well as a trailer hitch.  Not because it was expected to be difficult, but because it would be a lot of messy anxiety inducing work.  If I were smart I would’ve taken care of this during the first round..
