Another long and hot (but super productive) day and night working in Bronte the bus! We started building the boys’ bunk beds today. Some excellent progress over the past week!

    Oops hit enter before I was ready. I am so impressed with the progress and fit out. I can see some drawers fitting nicely under the boys bunks. Lucky boys, they will have a ball on them. Where did you decide to put the loo? I assume opposite the shower? I had a thought about an awning. Are you having one? Over our weekend away, we spent some time socialising with a bus and its occupant. It was pouring rain one night and we sat under the awning, which was awesome but when we went inside the bus we got wet. Cause of the curve of the roof, the awning wasnt placed over the door. I wo dered if it might pay to mount ine above the roof, instead of on the side. Also, he had a big awning but it was squishy. Thinking two independant awnings might be better? Cause…. I know you meed more to think about, right? Oops, sorry. Feel free to tell me to shut up!

    @kittymcfurson Hello cuz-in-law! Yes, the toilet is going opposite the bunk beds in same room as shower. With awnings, we are planning a variety of awnings around the bus. Some smaller window awnings along the offside and for bedroom windows, with a larger living area awning on the nearside (minimum 6 metres in length). The exposure to weather at the front door is a common problem. I had the same issue with Alice the Bus. Two reasons spring to mind as to why it isn’t always possible to extend the awning over door. The front section of bus does not have the same strong fixing points as above the side windows to attach sail track (as there is a lot of fibreglass) but we may be able to sikaflex above front door. Also, if the front door opens outwards, it can sometimes hit and eventually rip the awning (if sloping downwards away from bus). Haven’t ruled it out, but will see how it works with this bus. And no, please don’t stop with the ideas and comments! Feedback and suggestions are always welcome! 🙂
