It's back to work in Bronte the Bus! After spending the past week and a half getting old Alice the Bus ready for her new owners, it was nice to get back into Bronte this week to continue with our current project! I've been working on completing the main bedroom for the last two days. The bed and bookshelves are now taking shape. And the pine timbers around the windows are nearly complete. With Bronte now parked in our side yard, the bus is sitting on level ground at long last! We are aiming to complete the main bedroom over the coming weekend. We're pretty happy with the results so far.

    @emily_bom_bemily Hehee! The only thing straight is the fact that nothing is straight in Bronte the Bus! I actually used a spirit level when building on the street, but had to reference against a specific angle with the bubble (horizontal and vertical)! The bus floor is uneven, the walls have multiple angles and curves, and the bus was parked in a sloping gutter. It’s been quite a challenge. More often than not, I trust my eye to make the call on whether things look somehow roughly straight or not! 🙂 🙂 🙂

    @kannb35 Life on wheels is definitely starting to take shape, which has everyone here excited! I’ve promised to build the boys a crazy hidden lego playing area within/underneath the couch! Then life on wheels ticks off everything on their list! 🙂

    @themotherofreinvention I’m only using a very thin 3mm plywood for the walls (to keep the weight factor down in the bus) and nothing is quite straight. I imagine in a house that you could use a much thicker ply for great results! We’ve gone with a stain and varnish (liming white) coat and some clear coats, to lighten the look and hide the thousands of screws and sheet joints throughout. We had to use screws to affix the ply (to combat vibrations and movement when the bus is travelling) so a little unorthodox. We’re planning to perhaps use a thicker ply in the kitchen for cupboard doors etc. We’ve seen some beautiful pics on Pinterest of houses with internal ply walls and they look fantastic!
