Bus Conversion 2010


It has been a year since Mr. C and I decided to begin this adventure. While we haven’t been able to complete our bus conversion or go on any road trips with her (yet), we did want to do a recap of what we have accomplished thus far on Liahona’s conversion. All of these photos were taken from the front of the bus, so it is kind of fun to see the progress from beginning to present.

Screwed down the plywood and began the dining area.

Brought more of the salvaged bathroom/kitchen items in and began taping out the floor plan.

Modified our original floor plans (a couple of times), with the bathroom moved around. Decided that a shower would be better than a shower/tub.

Found that one of our salvaged cabinets was perfect for the bathroom, brought the fridge in, and began plumbing. Realized upper cupboards’ dimensions wouldn’t work, began dismantling them.

Began putting up bathroom walls.

Finished more of the bathroom walls, plumbing, and decided to change counter tops/sinks. Painted the windows that will be insulated & covered.

With the new countertops, new sinks, and stove/oven brought in. We were glad that we decided to change out the countertops, because the oven wouldn’t have fit in the other countertop without a lot of adjustments. We found a (used) deep, standard sink for the kitchen, which will work well when doing dishes for 8 people. We also found a (used) bar sink for the bathroom, which will be great for hand-washing clothes and won’t crack like the original salvaged plastic sink we had. We sent some laminate with the cabinet guy, for him to make our tables for us. I still need to get them from him….along with a huge list of other items that we are in need of taking care of.

If anyone has any suggestions for pages to visit for pictures of other bus conversions, they would be so very appreciated.

Pura Vida!

  2. LOL, I don’t know if I would call it organized….but I am getting pretty good at problem-solving. Thanks, Regina! What part of Germany are you from? We have a lot of German blood, my husband lived there for a few years (as a child), and we have an 11 year old son who is OBSESSED with Germany!
