Zephyr - 1961 GM PD-4106-446


« on: March 13, 2012, 07:22:51 PM »

Hey all...   

Been a while since we've been too active on the boards.  We've gotten tied up in Florida due to my father being ill, and have parked for a while nearby my folks to help out with his care.  We are anxiously crossing our fingers that there is hope for a positive outcome.

We took a break a couple weeks ago and tackled a few more projects on our bus (our full time home on wheels, we've been updating as we travel). 

Thought I'd share some pics for all those who enjoy some bus porn Smiley

Before (June 2011) & After (March 2012):

New Living / Office area coming together:

Our super awesome dual desk, with brand new pull out table/desk (wine & cheese table!):

New kitchen counters (with pull out counter extension):

(We did remove our propane oven & stove top - and are using primarily a portable induction cooktop, outside grill, rice cooker and toaster oven)

New bathroom countertops with new vessel sink & faucet:

Also, here's a link to a quick video tour of the modifications:

And a full blog post describing the most recent changes:

Thank you again to everyone for your support and encouragement in our journey to becoming bus nuts!

      Oh, carp, I gotta hide these from The Management -- if she sees these, I'm in deep trouble!   Nice, NICE job folks!

Cherie & Chris,

It's amazing how you all managed to make a 35'x8' bus look like a spacious 2 bedroom apartment.  Love the spacious center aisle.  My wife and I are stealing your idea for the slide out shelves.  I think we are going to put them everywhere.  My wife has also asked "Can I have a sink like Cherie's?"

Nice cat install, too.  Hard to get them screwed down like that.   Wink
