We’ve restarted work on our bus! Finally!
Granted, it’s happening slowly, as it continues to be difficult finding time during our weekly schedule to work on the bus, but like we’ve said, momentum is building. Maybe because it feels like spring is already here, and the weather is more tolerable to work in. Whatever it is, we’re feeling motivated.
The bus conversion feels daunting sometimes. We’ve done so much planning and research, but we’ve still never done anything like this before. It feels like a big complicated project with so many details and moving parts, but now that we’re doing this, we’ve found so many other families converting school buses, too. It’s encouraging to know that we’re not alone, and that this dream we have is possible to achieve.
Our next step, along with cleaning up and prepping for the work to come, is to purchase the necessary supplies to start insulating and putting up our walls. Then comes paint and finishing the floors. Everyone does this differently, so by no means is this the way you should go about your conversion, if you’re doing one. In many ways, it depends on the state of the bus you’re converting and the look you’re going for.
As our conversion gets underway, we’d love your feedback. If you’ve done something like this before, your advice is very welcome, or if you have any ideas of things you think we should do, we’ll definitely consider it.
Also, if you want to get involved with us for a longer period of time, check out our Patreon page at https://www.patreon.com/thejamisons. All of our patron’s names will be painted on our bus once we’re done with everything. So, be sure to sign up!
Thanks again for reading and watching!
