bus plan is finished

It is finished! The plan that is … there is still work to do. Not as much as in building a house, but still!

I was going to stay at a 12″ length but realized that it was not realistic at all. If it was just me, it would have worked out, but not with two dogs.


RED = Driver’s Seat


BLACK = Wood stove
DARK GREY = Stove pad
BLUE = Comfy sittin’ by the fire Chair
LIGHT BROWN = Kitchenette
DARK BROWN = Dresser that I love to use as part of the kitchen
STRIPED BROWN = Desk
PURPLE = BED


YELLOW= HOOD of Bus
GREEN = STORAGE AREA
GREY FLOOR = DRIVER’S AREA
WHITE FLOOR = INSULATED LIVING AREA




Other plans….
Restroom and storage in the back. Maybe a dog crate or two.


Shelving everywhere possible. Above the windows, for instance. The bed will be high enough that I have to get on a stool to get up there. Storage underneath. Storage above bed. Bookcase at the head of the bed.

Bus Update

Life is funny, you know. I make plans and life gets in the way. But that is okay. I am learning to be flexible.

One fun thing is that there is a pair of Red Tailed Hawks living in Lindornea. I know when they are around because one of them calls and calls and calls when separated from the other. I can hear them from all over the farm. Yesterday I was sitting in my chair and watching them fly over the bus again and again. This morning the bigger one was hunting in the lower field.


7′ x 12′ is a small space for everything, but I’m trying!  (This is the area I am walling off in the bus.  The rest will not be heated)


One thing I am excited about is finally I have decided to turn the crates I got from Craig’s List (FREE) into a “wardrobe”

This is the plan! It will take me a while to get it done …. and obviously they will look pretty rustic…


The first picture:  The inside of the largest crate. It is 6′ long by 5′ high. The little one  (not shown) is 4′ 3″ x 4′ 3″.

I am in desperate need of the storage space. The largest one will go around the “wheel hump.”

I plan on using salvaged oak flooring for the doors.
