Another cold and icy week working on the bus, but at least it was sunny!
Because of the weird linear bus space, we'll have a shower room and a separate toilet room, and a hallway in between them.
Screwing into the ceiling was quite a challenge. We broke at least 4 drill bits, a few drywall screws, and even the self tapping ones were difficult going in!
Framed so far: bed in back, two rooms on either side with a hallway in between.
I have been working some days by myself, while Phil is at work. Usually he will show me how to do something (like the framing) while we are working together, then I can continue on my own. There is no way I could be doing this all on my own, with my very little knowledge of building things. Yesterday a neighbor came over to say hi and check out the progress.
Gareth: "So you must be the carpenter in the family"
Me: "oh no, I've never built anything before, actually I dont even know what I'm doing."
But I managed to frame out the room on the right alone, with much frustration and many broken drill bits.
Bus Meal of the Week: Mashed sweet potatoes, black beans and brown rice, steamed kale...and lots of hot sauce, with vegan buttermilk biscuits and hot tea! Good eatin'!
