Before Before

Bathroom Before  Bathroom Before Bathroom After Bathroom After Master bedroom before Master bedroom before

What was replaced

  • All counter tops (kitchen, bedroom nightstands, bathroom)
  • faucets (bathroom and kitchen)
  • queen mattress
  • bathroom wall
  • water pump
  • battery
  • tires
  • shower head
  • propane tanks

What was renovated:

  • wall paint
  • cabinet paint
  • wood flooring
  • cabinet handles
  • window coverings ripped out
  • refrigerator: stainless steel contact paper
  • removed weird pad above entry door
  • removed built in entertainment center (between master and kitchen)
  • all vent covers spray painted
  • light switches painted
  • dinette table painted
  • doors painted
  • dinette cushions reupholstered
  • backsplash of peel and stick subway tiles in bathroom and kitchen
  • added minimal decor (america, mirror, plant, spice rack, hanging fake plant, American flag etc.)

I would say the renovation took 1 month of on and off working 3-5 hours a night. Everything was pretty easy except painting because painting SUCKS. It was a great starter project and taught us a lot.

I read everywhere that as you get to know your bus the name will come to you.  As I write this Brandon and Denver from Miller Adventures are on a plane to Dallas to pick up said bus.  Im in bed contemplating names for the new member of our family having not met him/her.

Do I want to be true to my thug ways and name the bus something like….BUSta Rhymes or BUSta move?

get deep and hipster with…..NuminousBus (Numi for short)

Numinous (adj.)Describing an experience that makes you fearful yet fascinated, awed yet attracted- the powerful, personal, experience of being overwhelmed and inspired.

or keep it punny and say the name of our bus is NoneyaBUSness

bahahahahahah!
