An update on our #busconversion  project in Bronte the bus. The main bedroom is nearly finished (except for the wiring, flooring, roller blinds and sealing of a few more plywood walls). The storage drawers and cupboards in the dinette area are nearly done too. I am using every available minute to work on the project (day and night) and am super keen to have the bus up to a 'livable' stage within the next few weeks. It's been a long six months of working around the clock on our future home and I'm very much looking forward to completing the job and taking a break! A huge thank you to everyone for the awesome support and encouragement. We're nearly there now! ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€ ~ Keiran.

A keen passenger waits patiently in the bus for our future life plans to begin! We're doubling down on our efforts to get the project finished. It's six months now since Bronte the bus arrived on our street. I'm hoping to have the bus at a 'livable in caravan parks' stage within the next five weeks. Down the track (when finances allow) we'll be tackling the second stage of the project, adding the solar power system, composting toilet and water tanks.

Today's jobs included many hours of sanding and sealing the benchtops, plywood walls and furniture,  and the fabrication of six drawers (to be fitted under the dinette seats). The boys went to stay at Nana's place tonight (thanks Mum), so another big day of bus building is planned for tomorrow. Good night all! ~ Keiran

Some long days (and nights) working in Bronte the bus over the weekend.The new benchtops (rubber wood) were cut to size and installed in the kitchen. The kitchen cabinets are taking shape and we got started on the plumbing for the kitchen sink. I've also been looking at ways to secure the fridge into position and will be tackling that job later this week. Sunday was a super sanding marathon (timber benchtops, dinette seat boxes and various kitchen cabinet and pantry walls). We applied a first coat of stain and varnish (liming white) to everything that we sanded and will follow up with a couple of clear coats later this week. The benchtops are looking awesome! ~ Keiran

Tales from the wild. Watching the sunset from Tallallbella (North Point) on Gnoorganbin (Moreton Island) last winter. Looking forward to more of these family adventures. We had a rare day off at home today with no working on the bus. It was nice to stop and catch our breaths. We ventured out late this afternoon to the Sandgate foreshore for a long walk and a sit down whilst the boys played on the tidal flats. It was a much needed recharge. It's nearly six months since we bought the bus. We've been going flat out ever since with the bus building (me), working to fund the project and keep us afloat (Sam) and of course juggling the busy responsibilities of parenting. It's been a huge and exhausting effort but thankfully motivation levels are still high. Our goal is firmly in sight.

Second kitchen bench is in! ๐Ÿ› ๏ธ In the second and third photos, we're playing with an extension of the kitchen bench which will be a breakfast bar / desk / extra bench space (you can never have enough bench space, right?) K is holding the extended bench up in these pics... we're thinking we'll drop the height slightly though as it's visually quite imposing (we added height to our benches because we be tall).

Another big weekend working in Bronte the bus. This is the 'dinette' which will convert into a couch or single bed as needed. When completed it will include drawers, cupboards and plenty of storage space.

It's been a while since we produced a video update of our project on YouTube. The actual building work is consuming all of my energy at the moment. Hopefully soon I will find the time to produce another episode. In the meantime, check out our Facebook or YouTube for a video flashback from 2014. Long before Bronte the bus entered our lives, we lived for five wonderful years at a remote lighthouse on Moreton Island. We've posted an old ABC News video today about our former lighthouse life. Check it out over on Facebook or YouTube. ~ Keiran.

Some exciting progress in Bronte the bus today! The dinette is beginning to take shape. And we managed to get the fridge and gas stove up into the bus (with a little help from our neighbours- thanks fellas!). Here's @littleearthstories inspecting the progress after arriving home from another long day at work (earning the dollars to keep our project moving along). Oh and there's also a picture of the Project Manager testing out one of the new dinette seats. The bus is really starting to feel like our future home now! ~ Keiran.

This is how we do it... #allhandsondeck  We've had a solid few days of getting things done including a couple of major purchases. Inverter fridge  Gas stove  Blockout blinds  We had a change of mind about our couch at the 11th hour (actually more like the 12th or 13th hour as we'd started building it ๐Ÿคช). We realised our galley style dining bench was not going to be quite long enough to comfortably fit the four of us, so have scrapped the couch in favour of a dinette (๐Ÿคจ I'm not sure whether I love or hate that word) which will convert to a spare bed slash really long flat workspace for the boys. Sacrificing some storage but otherwise it's win city! The help is pretty cute too! ~ sam

The timber work in the main bedroom is nearly done! I've still got to finish the window sills, pelmets and the wall sections either side of the shelving. We are then planning to install blockout blinds in all windows except the top hoppers. We've insulated the floor under the bed (with polystyrene and an additional layer of plywood) to minimise the heat rising up from the engine and to dampen the engine noise. There's quite a bit of storage space under the bed. We're planning to use baskets under the bed for clothes storage. We've got a split system air conditioner to install on the wall above the shelving. And some LED reading lights to wire in.

Bronte and Alice. A 'new and old bus' fleet shot from today! It's been a while since our last post but we've been super busy! We sold Alice the Bus last weekend and I have spent this entire week under that bus (in sweltering summer weather) carrying out repairs and getting the old bus moving again. It's been over four years since Alice was started and run, so there were multiple complications to overcome before she would budge. But we got there late today! Alice is now parked up on the street and awaiting a ride on a low loader this week to the country,  where she will start a new life as a permanent onsite house for her new owners. It was great to drive the old girl one last time (even if only from the side yard to the road). And the whole street came out to watch the excitement and cheer old Alice on! You can see more pics of Alice the Bus at @our.bus.

Worked the night shift in Bronte the bus tonight. We've now applied two coats of a liming white 'stain and varnish' to the plywood walls.

We started building our kitchen benches and cupboards today! 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!

Bunk beds be built in Bronte the bus!
Well okay, they're not quite finished yet. We still need to secure them to the walls, floor and ceiling. And the bunks will have plywood walls at each end, with some sort of plywood section with foot holes along part of the side (for ladder and cubby house). But the bones are built and we're pretty happy with that! ~ Keiran.

We're stoked with how the interior walls are coming along. 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!

We ran the starter batteries flat a few weeks ago (after too many nights running the saloon lights whilst working in the bus). The batteries were removed for a good slow charge. It was a great opportunity to clean up the battery storage tray, treat some rust and repaint the whole thing (the photos here were taken before the clean up and repaint). The batteries have now been reinstalled and Bronte the bus is ready for action again! ~ Keiran.

It was a great opportunity to clean up the battery storage tray, treat some rust and repaint the whole thing (the photos here were taken before the clean up and repaint). The batteries have now been reinstalled and Bronte the bus is ready for action again! ~ Keiran.

Some excellent progress in Bronte the bus over the weekend. It feels like we're on track! The main bedroom is taking shape, the plywood walls are going up and the interior walls for the bathroom have now been built (that's @littleearthstories standing in the shower area). The boys are super excited about getting their bunk beds built soon and today gave their Nana a guided tour of the bus! Stay tuned for more updates. ~ Keiran.
