Faithful Homesteader 

We recently rescued an old church bus from being a party bus. It was already partially converted into an RV, but we are working on turning it into a comfy home. The first projects have been framing, insulation, window tinting, and painting.

framing and insulation - Copy

The bus already had some insulation, but my husband wanted to add much more. It gets awfully hot here in north Texas and we certainly need all the help we can get with cooling. He started with the framing, using reclaimed lumber from a construction site. The framing allows us to do the insulation and eventually the walls. The insulation will also make the bus quieter. I can sure appreciate that.

windows - Copy

All of the windows behind the walls were blackened with rubber coating and the windows that we plan to use were tinted. From the outside, you cannot tell which windows are tinted and which ones have the rubber coating; the color is the same. The only windows that we plan to use are where the beds will be and in the kitchen area. The rubberized coating will help strengthen the windows and add another layer of quiet. My husband also resealed all of the windows.
