WE BOUGHT A BUS!
On November 9th, 2019, Nik, Sadie, Piper and I took home our school bus from Ruckersville, VA! An indescribable feeling of excitement as we took the keys and began our journey down the road. (only hitting one stop sign along the way). Not knowing how the next few months were going to play out but ready for what was to come no matter what. We arrived to Stafford 2 hours later and parked the bus in its new home for the next few months. At home that night, we searched up and down the web for designs, ideas, and how to videos. Too excited to sleep that night because all we could think about was getting back to the bus to begin the work.
We went back the next day and got straight down to business. We began by taking out all the seats. Hitting our first hiccup when the bolts were so rusted the air-drill wouldn't budge them one bit and all the WD-40 in the world wouldn't solve our issue. Luckily, dad to the rescue with the angle grinder and in a jiffy we had the seats out. Lots of heavy lifting, lots of gum, and other misc items as to be expected when cleaning out a bus tiny children once rode to and from school on. But now it is ours and we can begin the fun part of turning it into our own perfect little tiny home on the road.
