School bus conversion to tiny house

This blog is starting off a decent way into the school bus conversion project. The rush to get the bus to a respectable point kept me from starting the blog sooner. Circumstance funneled me into a “boondocking” lifestyle while doing the schoolie conversion. Including a roll on Rustoleum paint job that was completed on a Portland side street over the labor day weekend(click here to see the paint process) .A Youtube channel called the Nomadic Fanatic was very helpful in preparing me for the boondocking lifestyle.

Only the outer walls and floor were done before me and the dogs moved into the bus. The summer consisted of slowly building humanity back around me while also maintaining the web design business. The psychological impact of turning on the water for the first time and sitting down at the kitchen table for the first time stand out the most.

I did take a lot of pictures while converting the bus and will be posting previous progress pictures as well as current updates. Feel free to ask questions in the comments below.
