A little 40th weekend birthday get-away for my bride and me at Double JJ Ranch in Northern Michigan. We’re pretty sure when we’re β€œold” some day we will not only be driving a bus around for our vacation getaways... but we might even park it next a sweet little tiny home like this cabin we stayed in 😍 It. Was. Awesome. β˜€οΈπŸšŒ #thesummahbus #skoolie #livesimply

Visiting some friends in Ludington, MI this weekend and while we’re in the area... figured we’d scout some camp spots for next summer. This place is amazing... oh, and true story... while we rolled through the state park we spotted @fernthebus πŸ˜‚βœŠπŸ»Didn’t want to be rude and blow up their campfire gathering, but we did shout out to them that we followed them on the insta!! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ So cool to see a fellow skoolie in flesh and blood!! #skooliesoftheworlsunite β˜€οΈπŸšŒ #thesummahbus #skoolie

Closed in the last wall (other than a portion in the bathroom still left open for PEX). I’m now a little over a year into his whole project... and with full time teaching and a wedding film business... things have slowed to a crawl as of late. πŸ˜‘... but slowly and surely... we will finish things. β˜€οΈπŸšŒ #thesummahbus #skoolie #bluebirdbus

Spent some time today installing the head unit to everything that will be β€œaudio” in the bus. A Pioneer Elite slim receiver. It has HDMI and will carry the sound for the Xbox, movies, as well as music when we’re rolling down the road. It’s Bluetooth enabled and pairs to my phone with amazing ease. I also installed another outlet in line for all this stuff to plug into when it’s inside the cabinet. Clean installs with no visible wires are, indeed, a true love of mine. Can’t wait to close this cabinet up. β˜€οΈπŸšŒ #thesummahbus #skoolie #bluebirdbus

While it's not actually "installed" yet (nor is the wall finished around it... nor was the light remotely good for a pic last night 😡)... I was able to dry-fit the bathroom sink and custom cabinet. Mad props to my father-in-law who, despite currently battling cancer and going through chemo treatments, found the strength to build this cabinet for us. He is a true blessing. Please pray for God's mercy on his life and strength to see His goodness even in the midst of this wilderness of life. β˜€οΈπŸšŒπŸ‘πŸ» #thesummahbus #skoolie #bluebirdbus

Taking a quick moment to post my SLOW but steady progress. Inside of the back wall is officially done. The "escape hatch" to the garage is wrapped in cedar t&g so it sorta "blends in." Vent fan is wired in and pulling some MEAN breeze through the back of the bus. πŸ‘ŠπŸΌπŸ‘ŠπŸΌ Now I have to get back to work... like my "real" job. 😿 I. Miss. Summah. β˜€οΈπŸšŒ #thesummahbus #skoolie #bluebirdbus

... and everyone gets their own LED light in their bunk bed too. πŸ’‘β˜€οΈπŸšŒ #thesummahbus #skoolie #bluebirdbus

Cranking it out on @thesummahbus before school starts up tomorrow. Then I become an evening/ weekend warrior again on this project 😒

Back wall done on the inside. ALMOST done on the "garage" side. Escape hatch on the left (it will be covered with a wall tapestry). Vent fan on the right. And those curves... if I NEVER Cut another curve to fit against that roof it will be too soon. Oh wait... I still have about 7 wall sides to finish. πŸ˜­πŸ˜­πŸ˜­πŸ˜­πŸ˜­πŸ˜­πŸ˜­πŸ˜­β˜€οΈπŸšŒ #thesummahbus #skoolie

Yesterday yielded the beginnings of the back wall. .
Pic 1 From the outside, the wall will be white beadboard and will provide an area to hang gear on. Also, the back wall has a USB and 12V "cigarette" lighter adapter on it (for those moments when you may need to hook up something on the outside).
.
Pic 2 from the inside. This wall will stay natural cedar planks. The hole to the right will be another "fantastic" vent fan to help with air movement out of the back of the bus (because it can get stuffy back there). The one to the left will be an "escape hatch" in case of an emergency. Giving access to the back of the bus is important since that's where we will all be sleeping. The bed is elevated and will have storage accessible from the inside of the garage.
.
Pic 3 is a pic of the hallway leading down to our bedroom. Bunks and storage on each side. The opening under our bed right in the middle will be drawers or shelves accessible from our bedroom for our clothes, etc.
.
We're getting there. Slowly but surely. β˜€οΈπŸšŒ #thesummahbus #skoolie #bluebirdbus

Good day to put up the "back wall." We opted to leave our back as the "garage" so our bedroom will have an actual "back wall" and on the other side, accessible from the emergent exit, will be the "gear" storage (and fresh water tank, etc). β˜€οΈπŸšŒ #thesummahbus #skoolie #bluebirdbus

Beadboard day with my best friend. β˜€οΈπŸšŒ #thesummahbus #skoolie #bluebirdbus

Let's just be honest: everybody needs a little 12V chrome trucker fan in their lives πŸ˜πŸ€˜πŸΌπŸ’¨β˜€οΈπŸšŒ #thesummahbus #skoolie #bluebirdbus

One switch to rule them all. One switch to bind them. One switch to turn them on... and in the darkness... blind them πŸ˜‚πŸ€”
.
So today I finished up stage two of my wiring. I ran more 12V around the bus and installed a total of 10 USB plugs (w/ two outlets each in them. I attached a few pics to show what they look like) and two "cigarette" adapters for GPS or whatev. Everyone has a USB input in their bunk, two in our bedroom, one at each end of the couch, one by the dinette, one in the garage, and one by the door. I polished it all off with a master "kill" switch so even the little blue LEDs don't have to draw power when I don't want them two. I figure before I finish the walls, I might as well be logical about putting power wherever I might need it. β˜€οΈπŸšŒβš‘οΈβš‘οΈ #thesummahbus #skoolie #bluebird is

Working on bunks today. Will it EVER be done. πŸ˜‘πŸ€”πŸ˜‚πŸ˜«β˜€οΈπŸšŒ #thesummahbus #skoolie #bluebirdbus

I finally finished my drawers... no thanks to IKEA again. 😐 True story... I went and got the drawers that they told me I needed to get for an exchange. When I got home, I put the new drawers together... and they fit... but the the tracks didn't line up despite following the exact drawer layout listed in the manual. I decided to throw the directions away, and figure it out on my own... after all... I'm building a bus, yo. πŸ€˜πŸΌβ˜€οΈπŸšŒ #thesummahbus #skoolie #ikeadirectionssuck

Every day that I accomplish something in the bus I get excited for the finish line of this project... and then I step back and look at everything and realize I still have a LOOOOOOOONG way to go πŸ˜‘ Not going to lie... it's been a lot of fun... but I am pretty sure I'm ready to be done with this project so that I can enjoy the fruits of my labor. β˜€οΈπŸšŒ #thesummahbus #skoolie #bluebirdbus
