I’m so happy that I started writing again... I made that headboard. I’m balancing my work, my side job and my personal life stupidly well for once. I’m stopping and smelling the roses. I’m loving myself. I’m learning and taking time for self care... I’m taking control of my future. What switch slipped? When did things start to make sense for once? And why did it take so damn long? Kidding, I’m feeling hella emotional and appreciate these days. So if you see me, hug me and take some of this happy energy💕💕 #ilovemylife #fuckingsap #imadedis #schoolbusconversion #bliss #basic #family #bestsummer

No buses are ever true, straight, or square, so sometimes you gotta shim it, to win it. This Crown has a unique wall design and we have made a new framing system for it that allows us to tune the new interior wall supports so we can have nice straight and true walls. The joys....

We haven't posted in a while but we've been pretty busy, got the electrical done, getting the kitchen all put in, started on painting the outside of the bus but we had to turn part of the closet into another bed because surprise the be happy bus will be adding a baby in February!!

It's all about priorities, people. First thing in the fridge in this 100+ weather? Water, water, and more water. .
.

Yesterday evening, @verda_mae came over and hooked up the propane on my temporary trailer. We got to talking and played with the goats and chatted while the sun set and then I went up to the house to take a shower (long story). .
.

By the time I got back, the trailer smelled funny. I knew I had tossed some stinky food from the fridge dying 2 days ago but this? Man, where could this rotten egg smeeeee.... dang it! I left the knob of the stove to LIT (calm down, I'm not that exciting). .
.

Thankfully, most of that time, pup had been outdoors with me so she hadn't suffered ill-effects. Be careful, if you're camping or boating or in a trailer or camper or #livintheRVlife or living the #skoolielife - keep an eye on that propane. .
.

Oh, and, stay hydrated my friends. 😅💦💦💦 .

Half. Way. There!!!! So many days and man-hours to get to this point. It’s not quick, easy, or perfect. I’m tired, hot, and finding paint everywhere. Honestly, at this point, I have zero interest in ever painting a vehicle again, the curiosity has been satisfied. It’s going to be a tough push to the finish line. I’m exhausted and we still have to complete the 2nd half, not to mention the rest of the house. Maybe a 2nd coat is not such a big deal? Fortunately, I’m really happy with the way it’s turning out. I love the color, the white with black and metal accents looks really sharp, and it almost looks like a professional job. So that’s good news. We’re over the hump, so we keep painting...

One of the great side effects of following the 101 is that you are taken through so many diverse areas. One minute you are winding along the beach, the next, you are meandering though giant coastal redwoods. We could get used to this scenery!

Update: I am too exhausted to be very witty but here it goes. 😴 We have a fully functional water system, the bathroom completely skinned on the outside, the kitchen cabinets placed where they will soon be drilled down, the washer/dryer support strong, a closet, a pantry, an additional storage cabinet, the fridge placed where it will go, and the dog kennel/bunk area ready to be framed in complete with 2 walls. 🙌🏻 So much accomplished in a matter of days because of my amazing dad @josh.ziegler . ❤️ The bus has just transformed and every day we are closer to having a home. .

Driving up the peninsula on our way to dinner at @jollypumpkintc with our besties... rolling in the bus the only way we know how... loud music and lots of laughs. ☀️🚌 .
True story: in my lonely hours of working on the bus, it was the thought of future moments like these that would keep me going. My. Heart. Is. Full.
.
If you’re still working on your build, moments like these WILL eventually happen. Keep going!! ❤️ #thesummahbus

When it’s been 6 days straight of bus building. 😴
.
Just out of curiosity, how long did it take for you to finish your bus conversion?

AND just like that we have a place for our bed! 🎉
We purposefully made it tall so we could have plenty of storage underneath. The top of it is going to be stained and then Luke has plans to make doors in the front of it and it will be painted white.
🔲
What I am most excited about is the center of the bed as Luke was telling me he wanted it to come out in case we needed to access to the back door at all. For example we are planning on getting a 10 cubic ft fridge so if it can’t come through the front door then we can remove the middle section and get it in that way. I LOVE IT!
😍

My heart has been heavy lately. With so many reminders around telling us how sensitive nature is why is it that we often have such a hard time remembering? .
.
Between the pollution of the city and all the wildfires around in Colorado the air quality is horrible. I feel like my brain is suffocating from the lack of clean oxygen and that's such a different picture than what you would expect from "Colorado the Beautiful". .
.
When you drive down 70 you will see the signs urging you to carpool, stay at home, or use alternate transportation. Warnings that if you are sensitive to stay indoors. Stay indoors?!? It's Colorado in the summer we are all supposed to be enjoying this time!! .
.
As we are a community of travelers, be mindful of these things. I've learned so much since being here about this place that I never would have known had I not lived here so I thought I would share some. .
.
Read the fire ban warnings... Go to the website and look up the regulations. Right now in this area of Colorado you aren't even allowed to use chainsaws, if you smoke you are supposed to do it indoors with Windows closed, that's how bad it is. Did you know that an ember can travel up to four miles and still cause a fire?!? 🤯 Who would have thought? .
.
So while nature is beautiful and it deserves to be explored, try to love your mother while you are out there and make sure you are doing what you can to protect her so we can all enjoy her for many many years to come.

Because so many people wanted to get a feel for the inside of the bus, and pictures don't always give you a good perspective, we quickly shot and edited this lil video!
Please keep in mind, the video quality iteself, as well as the editing, is totally sub-par, and we will produce quality content in the future. This was just something we wanted to bust out so all of yall could see the inside as it stands now. **MUSIC** Artist: Saje ; Song: Freefallin' Dreams

Took a quick break from the bus when we realized, for all the hiking and adventures we’ve done, neither of us had ever *earned* the prized Mt. Washington bumper sticker. Solved that one.

These guys make great conversationalist if you let em open up! Sorry I've been slack on posting, I'm not the best at taking pictures and my sister who usually posts is on vacation. But im glad I managed to get one of me and a friend shooting the bull like old times! (He'll drink you under the table, keep an eye on him) stay on the bright and sunny side, friends!

A piece of Cozy’s tiny kitchen. Long before Cozy existed, I had this weathered palette-wood surface that I used to photograph my products on. It was the perfect neutral shade of gray. When the time came to build Cozy, I didn’t want to part with this pretty surface, so I chopped it up, and repurposed it throughout the bus (see the shelving, in this photo). I love that Cozy carries reminders of my former life, it makes her feel like an evolution, and like home. .

day twenty:
just as we were leaving the Tetons we spotted #skoolie friends on the side of the highway + turned around as fast as we could without making a 32 point turn.
.
they’re professionals by now so naturally we asked a lot of questions, beginning with “when did you adapt to #buslife?”
.
there’s nothing like connecting + learning from others on the road. you can connect with Tyler + Lexi also at @onewildridebus. they are the real deal and their build is dreamy...happy trails, guys!

Yesterday, we hit 900 Followers on our Instagram account, and we couldn't be more grateful.
This past month has been full of new paths - We changed our build/voyage plan AGAIN, Kody started a new job at a woodworking shop, and we found/adopted a ferral kitten!
We have decided to work and save funds instead of heading out and not having a comfortable cushion to back us (which could impare our traveling abilities long term). This can be difficult because it doesn't reward our sense of instant gratification - we could totally leave on the bus next month if we wanted to, but we decided to work now so we can play harder, later.
The 2nd day of Kody's new job, this 4 week old kitten, who we now call Loki, showed up under our car, just before sundown. I (Brittany) felt compelled to help him, like maybe this was a sign from the Universe. All in all, we have been going through a lot of changes regarding our path, but it has been the most enlightening and rewarding experience.
We thank all of yall for your continued support, even when we seem absent on here. The love and friendship that is within the Skoolie community, and all those who root us on from the outside, is a constant reminder and motivater to keep going forward with our dream.
Note: Are you really building a Skoolie if you don't constantly change plans or ideas for your build and/or journey?

There are three general options when it comes to windows in a bus - leave them all open (not really a feasible option when you think of everything that goes in), cover them (also not great, as far as how it looks from the outside), or skin them (remove them and cover with metal as if they were never there - the best looking of the three, but taking away from the whole school bus effect). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We chose the second option, but found a one way thermal barrier tint that will A.) help keep the interior cool in summer, B.) give us a little more privacy on the windows that remain open and C.) negate the downside of this option, which is seeing insulation and construction through the windows we chose to cover. From the outside, all you see is a mirrored black reflection, but it's only a slight tint from the inside.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Putting this on was a chore, but worth the effort. The bus already feels cooler as we work inside, and not having to lose the aesthetic of the school bus windows from the outside in favor of metal was a huge plus for us.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Side note: did you know we have 59 windows in our bus, not counting the back, door and front windows? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

The blazing 108 temps have slowed us down a bit... Thanks Texas. 🤷🏻‍♀️ We may continue to hibernate until further notice. But don't you worry, things will be picking up soon! *In love with the flooring we have* Stay tuned to see! ·

Throwing it back to when the bus was a work in progress. This is about when our empty shell started to actually feel like it could be a home and when our parents became much less worried about our decision to live in a bus 😂

Mock-up gray water tank expansion. From 55gal to about 75gal. This will definitely work but I know I can get another 15gal and improve the design on the next version. 80-100 gal tank to fit where I need would be $480-680. By the time I am done I will create one for about $200, tools and mock-up included. Now that I know what I am doing I can do it for $82 and about 3hrs of time. Custom don’t come in a box!

Major shoutout to those who helped with the bus paint job. Even “Oz” the elderly veteran who lives in my downstairs apartment wanted to help out along with my neighbors kids, @barefoot.gardenyogi, and my brother @dylan_b_sutherland and his girlfriend @itselsa123 . Thank you all! And the biggest thank you to @sabrinathetimberwitch for being the greatest sidekick ever. #skoolie #schoolbusconversion

Getting creative with places to stay is always fun... a family friend was in the process of selling their house and graciously donated their driveway as our base camp for a few days. Having a bit of privacy down a long dirt driveway is priceless!

Can I just say, sometimes social media can be discouraging. Let's be real, the tiny house movement and skoolie thing have made a popular splash in the last couple of years. Joshua and I got our girl about two years ago, yes we are nearly done, mercy its been two dang years! We have watched so many people buy, strip, and rebuild buses in such short periods of time and make them look so good and here we are, puttin along.. I often find myself thinking "oh wow, i wish that we had done this" over and over again. You know, comparing what I have to what someone else has; having to reset my mind to draw inspiration rather than envy and fully appreciate the journey that has taught us so much. So heres to the rough and dirty adventures that grow us into the people we hope to be.
.Cheers❤️

Every night when we’re doing working on the bus for the day, we sit up on the roof and watch the sunset. This will never get old! Can’t wait to watch sunsets from this roof in so many other places.

This has truly taken some getting used to: 17 years of camping always meant leaving the camper and driving around in the car or truck. While that certainly had its perks (uh... parking!?) 😂, it also came with its annoyances. But this has been so different for us!! We literally have everything we need driving down the road with us. Hungry? Let’s start cooking dinner before we get back to the campsite...so we don’t always have to “stop to eat on the way.” 🙌🏼
.
We can swim in any waterhole we find... our suits, towels, and dry clothes are right there with us.
.
No packing food for a day trip... we’re driving around with our lunch already with us.
