Our original plan was to paint the interior walls (except the pine timbers around each window) but we're really liking the raw plywood look. It's been slow going, as we're finalising electrical plans as we go (so that we can run the wiring inside the walls). We're planning to finish off the nearside wall today and get started on the bunk beds. Very exciting! Have a great weekend everyone!

    @poa_and_pod Hehe! Sorry to leave you in suspense! We haven’t finished building the main bed yet. If you look in the second picture, the black milkcrate is centred approximately where the main bed is going. There are a couple of steps at the rear of the bus that we are insulating first, as the engine is located undernearth. The bed will be positioned east-west, with the bed slats coming off at the height of that first piece of horizontal plywood (the bit with the tea cup on it). There will be some storage under the closer edge of the bed when done. Um, does that help? ๐Ÿ™‚

    @_eatwelltraveloften_ Thank you so much! Yeah, we’re also learning as we go. I reckon we spend 80% of our time thinking and planning how to actually do stuff in the bus. Lots of learning and Googling and YouTubing, that’s for sure! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Gosh, All this work os soooo worth it. What a beautiful bus she’s becoming. The raw tumber is defs the way to go. Looks warmer and more inviting and who doesnt love a bit of rawness in their personalised design? Adds a unique quality. I love Bronte!

    @talesfromthewild we do! We are continuously changing our mind about painting or not! We are a bit slow with building at the moment. Summer holidays have made it tricky, but itching to get stuck into it again! So much to do!!!

    @warwickpanda Thanks Noela! Oh Lord Howe Island looks incredible in the brochures! Hope you enjoyed your trip. We would love to visit there one day! Maybe we need to build a yacht next? Just kidding! ๐Ÿ™‚ Keiran
