It's been a busy weekend with lots of odd jobs completed on the bus. We've done some more waterproofing after discovering two unresolved leaks in the bus after yesterday's rain. We've started sealing the plywood walls with a clear coat, although we're now contemplating a subtle coat or two of stain and varnish (liming white). And tonight I applied the first of two coats of white ceiling paint throughout the bus. It's progress on many different fronts at the moment!

    We used β€œBona” products – enviro friendly oils, stains, primers, sealers etc…for all our bespoke plywood cabinetry. It’s amazing stuff and has s lovely natural finish. (Swedish product)

    @teaandredclogs Thanks so much Catherine! We already had a tin of stain and varnish at home, but I’ve just checked out the Bona range online for some of our other project needs. Appreciate the tip! πŸ™‚

    @lisahurtmaker Thank you so much Lisa! My carpentry skills are rather unorthodox, but I really enjoy being creative and building things with wood. So I am most pleased to inspire others to do the same!

    @suewhit Thanks so much Sue! Yes, the rain delivered a timely reminder to get the waterproofing right before we get too excited about the fitout! I’m now waiting for more rain to test my latest efforts with the waterproofing! πŸ™‚
