Today's progress report. The master bedroom is beginning to take shape now. I have started fixing the 3mm plywood wall sheets into place. The 24v wiring for lights and USB charging sockets is also being rolled out (behind the wall sheets). And the shelves on the rear wall are coming along nicely. We have decided to install a 2.5kW split system air conditioner in the bus and this will be mounted on the rear wall (above the shelves). A productive day in Bronte the bus! ~ Keiran.

There's something very satisfying about watching timelapse video of the project taking shape! The last of the insulation was installed over the weekend. We've got 50mm polystyrene in the walls, an air gap, then a three-in-one foil insulation stapled into place. Pine battens and 3mm plywood are going on next to complete the walls. We've also finished installing exterior vents for the fridge and 'rangehood' (a 24v computer fan mounted in the wall), and added the power inlet and access holes for exterior sensor and annex lights. A productive weekend (despite the super hot #Brisbane weather)! ~ Keiran.

A sunset inspection by the Project Manager to check progress in the bus. We passed apparently! Although he’s particularly keen to see the bunk beds completed in the not-too-distant future.

A general progress report. Lots of work with insulation, windows and walls. We're finally also getting started with building the furniture and it's super exciting. This is the beginning of the main bedroom (queen bed and book shelves at rear). We're planning to insulate under the bed (as it's situated above the engine). The bus starter batteries have been removed for a good charge and the battery box treated for rust. We've also been busy online buying electrical components like power points (double pole), usb charging sockets and exterior sensor lights. We're kind of all over the place but definitely moving in the right direction with the project.

Bronte the bus waiting patiently for the big adventure. We've now installed six sliding windows and have been busy completing the wall insulation inside. We've also spent many hours waterproofing the exterior of the bus (it leaked like a sieve) and have applied a waterproof membrane around all glazing and body joints from the windows up. With rain falling since the waterproofing was applied, we're calling it a success. There are no leaks in the bus anymore! On a side note, we've still got to apply some black automotive vinyl to the second last window to cover up the polystyrene insulation that's  inside.

Some good progress in the bus today! The nearside (left) wall is beginning to take shape. We tacked up the foil/foam insulation today. This thermal barrier will help to prevent heat from entering the bus through the wall frame. The next step will be to put up another layer of pine battens and then the 3mm plywood wall sheets can go on.

Night shift. We're racing to get the final window done before predicted thunderstorms on New Year's eve. We've removed six windows (large fixed glass panes) and are replacing with aluminium composite panel and rv sliding windows. We've also been busy 'weather sealing' the bus with a coat or two of a liquid flexible membrane. Got a few decent leaks to conquer!

The old and the new. Alice and Bronte the buses! If you look closely at Bronte, you will notice the completed windows on our new bus. Starting from the front door, the first window is original bus glass,  the second window is aluminium composite panel with rv sliding window installed, the third window is original bus glass with black vinyl covering the lower section and the fourth window is another aluminium panel with rv sliding window installed. 
Alice was my first bus conversion project (completed in 2003). I lived in Alice the bus at Uluru for many years before driving her back to Queensland. She's 46 years old now and semi-retired. We use Alice as an office and guest accommodation in the side yard now. You can see more photos of Alice at @our.bus. ~ Keiran

Escaping the Brisbane heat yesterday! We found a perfect little swimming spot at Cedar Creek near Samford. The water was simply delightful! It's the school holidays and I'm trying to find the balance between getting our bus conversion project done and creating a few adventures and experiences for the boys. They've been so patient with me and the time I'm putting into the bus (whilst Sam is away at work each day), so it was awesome to unwind and have a laugh together in the creek yesterday.

Bronte the bus camped by the Goulburn River at Seymour. This was the day that I picked up the bus and started the 1800km journey back to Queensland. That was just over two months ago. We've been working whenever possible on the bus and are starting to see some good progress. The YouTube videos however have been a little slower to publish.

A productive day in the bus. Having removed two of the fixed windows earlier this week, we have now put in some timber framing in preparation for the replacement cladding (aluminium composite panel). We'll then be inserting sliding windows into these new panels. It was another stormy day in Brisbane (hence the tarps over the window spaces this afternoon). You may also have noticed that we've swapped out the old school bus seats for some coach seats with lap sash belts (from an old Greyhound bus). Feels like we're making good progress this week!

One minute it was blue skies and I was happily painting window frames (we removed two large fixed windows this week) and the next minute... a midday storm and torrential downpour! I don't mind.

We've completed our design of the floor plan in Bronte the bus. It's very much a standard bus conversion layout (there's only so many ways to build a house in a space like this). We have tried to maximise the available space for work, creativity, study and play. There's a computer desk in the main bedroom and a breakfast bar that extends from the kitchen to the front of the bus, creating a long work bench area for all purposes (sitting or standing). The couch in the living area will have toy storage underneath, with the couch cushions removable to create a low table area for playing. A major design constraint were the top hopper windows that open inwards. To keep all windows available for use, we've had to align the floor plan carefully with these openings. We'll have more about the floor plan in our next YouTube video (due soon)! Subscribe now to be notified when the next video is uploaded!

Sunset over Bronte the bus tonight. The weather has been unsettled for a few days now with heavy rain today, so there hasn't been much 'physical' progress on the bus. Instead we've been reviewing our (ever-dwindling) budget, getting quotes for materials and working on the design of our floorplan. We'll be posting some computer models of our floorplan in the coming days. Stay tuned! And thanks for following. Keiran (@keiranlusk)

Sunset over Bronte the bus tonight. The weather has been unsettled for a few days now with heavy rain today, so there hasn’t been much ‘physical’ progress on the bus. Instead we’ve been reviewing our (ever-dwindling) budget, getting quotes for materials and working on the design of our floorplan. We’ll be posting some computer models of our floorplan in the coming days. Stay tuned! And thanks for following. Keiran (@keiranlusk)
