    Practical can be very inexpensive if pretty isn’t a top priority. Save the money for gas.

    Cozy enough for the journey.

      You’re kidding, right??? The videos don’t take that long to watch and are self explanatory.

        Sorry Marsha, no pictures on this one but if you have time later it really is worth a watch. He’s really creative and makes use of some really cool stuff to make the bus home.

    You’ve done a beautiful job. I like the look of the torched then varnished plywood. Although I was a little surprised to see you torched it inside your bus…dear brave creative builder! Love it!!!
