My apprentice and I have been putting the finishing touches on the main bedroom in our bus this week. We've built drawers and doors for the cupboard and a bedside table with drawers (and a slide-out desk for Sam). The bedside lights have been wired in and I've painted over one (just one) of the plywood walls with some white paint. The main bedroom is nearly finished now. And we are one step closer to having the whole interior of the bus done and dusted. au

Flashback to an epic solo roadtrip in my first house on wheels - Alice the bus. It was in January 2009 and a very hot Australian summer. After many years living at Uluru in the Northern Territory, I packed up and drove Alice back to Queensland via some of my favourite outback roads in South Australia and New South Wales. Alice kept overheating so there were frequent stops, a couple of breakdowns and more flat tyres than I care to remember! But what an incredible adventure. We sold Alice the bus earlier this year to make room in the yard for Bronte the bus. I can't wait to travel these roads again but this time in Bronte and with my family. Not long now! au

We are currently powering towards completion of our bus conversion project. This week we've been working on two separate areas - the shower walls and the underfloor gas bottle storage compartment. They're both jobs that had me intimidated, so naturally I've left them until nearly last. We plan to carry two 9kg gas bottles and will be connecting them to our gas stove and also our hot water service. With no existing underfloor luggage bins on the offside of the bus, I am creating a storage compartment from scratch for the gas bottles. I have fabricated and welded some steel 'L' brackets to bolt to the chassis rails and will be installing a shelf for gas bottle holders on these brackets. I've also cut another hole in the side of the bus and installed a pre made access hatch (which was surprisingly easy to do and looks quite professional! ). We will be finding a qualified gas fitter to run the copper piping, connect up the appliances and issue the required certification. In the shower area, we've used 3mm aluminium composite panel (gloss white) to line the walls. Although cut to size when ordered, I needed to trim each piece to accommodate the curved roof of the bus and the not-quite-square nature of my self built walls. I have bonded the shower wall pieces with polyurethane adhesive to the internal plywood walls (which I waterproofed and painted previously). Each piece also rests on and is bonded to the top lip of the poly/fibreglass shower base. Finished with a small bead of silicone, the shower walls have come up a treat! au
