This week, the men started to conquer the inside of the bus. The windows were removed, well, all of them except the centre emergency escape windows, those ones were left in and simply filled in with the foam. To fill the spaces and add insulation all of the windows had a double thickness of foam to replace them. The Man says that is just in case it gets cold where we are camping and I only want to hear that it is to insulate against the heat of wherever we are camping As I get older, I am all for warmer climates LOL!
The insurance company gave us a time limit to get the inside of the bus converted. 30 days. Yes, they are a little delusional. There is no way that I can see that the inside could have been converted in that time, so Plan B has gone into effect. What is Plan B? Well, the insurance company and the vehicle registration office has a few criteria that make a bus officially converted. It must have 4 out of 6 of the following items:
A heating or air conditioning system
A self contained toilet
umm, that is all that I remember, because Plan B is simply putting a mattress, coleman stove and a porta potty inside the bus and considering the regular bus heater as the heating system We can then get it registered and have the insurance in place and the real work can begin.
The plans are coming along nicely and because The Man is a cabinetmaker, it will be quite nice when it is finished. We have figured out the sleep arrangements and the seating arrangements so far and that will be the subject of Week 4’s post!
