  • Wow, it's nice to be back in here! What a long time it's been!


    Anyway, Bella bus has been fully restored and is an absolute thing of beauty now, even more so than before. She even had her wooden frame restored. Proper lush now! She's a vegan cafe on the Isle of Wight festival circuit, and looks to be very happily enjoying her new life.


    I'm now building a transit luton and a transit connect (I love my transits!)


    The connect is what takes me to and from work every day, and is for escaping places at the weekend. It's also for living in right now, coz I'm sick n tired of trying to live in my luton and build it at the same time!


    The luton is gonna be very Harry Potter, arched doorway, stained glass window, starry ceiling, etc.


    The connect is gonna be a bit of an eclectic rustic Viking hippy Indian fusion.


    Unfortunately, I cannot for the life of me work out how to post photos from my phone, so you're just going to have to imagine them for now, whilst I head over to the support forum for my lessons, then I'll post photos in the comments. Hopefully.

  • Omg why is this so hard????


    Laney, if I Facebook you my photos, do you know how to put them here?


    Why am I so rubbish with modern technology?

  • I designed all the door by myself, but I had some help from a mate with the actual construction. I'm gonna do all the decorations and carvings myself though. It's got 25mm celotex sandwiched in the middle, so it's gonna keep me toasty :)

  • That's beautiful looking forward to more convertion pics. One day id love to convert one myself now i passed my driving test (happy dance). Are you living in another vehicle whilst you convert?

    I'm trying to live in the little one while converting the big one, but until the little one has heating, I really need to be spending more time in the big one. I am NOT a fan of the cold!
