Our new home

Welcome!  This blog is going to be about our new journey to happiness.  I have dreams of being a full time metalsmith and my fiance loves his job as a Rigger.  Evan's job requires lots of traveling and we are miserable being apart for so long.  I would also like to travel more so we came up with a solution. 

 We bought a bus!  A 1972 Crown super coach school bus.  It already has been partially upgraded with toilet, shower, sink, solar panels, freshwater/gray water tanks, and sewage tank.  It looks nice on the inside but it isn't accommodating for our needs.  We got it home on Friday afternoon and had a huge portion of the inside ripped out by Saturday evening.  It had several bunks built in for the two adults and 7 children that lived in it before.  There is a lot of work to do still to meet our satisfaction but I am excited to work on this project with Evan.  He is a very handy man and am thrilled to learn some new skills.  I am going to have a section of the bus just for my mini studio, I am so excited!  

For your viewing pleasure, here are some before pictures of the bus and what we have torn out so far.  I hope you enjoy following us on our journey. Share with others as well, the more the merrier :-)

This space above here is going to be my studio space :-) My bench is going to fit perfectly.

Our friend Tony showed up.  He helped us out some, mostly drank ;-)

We're going to add some windows in from our vintage camper we took apart a while back. 

This is all for now in the demolition process.  Now we just have to plan what we are going to do next.  Probably going to put in the windows and redo the ceiling.
