Update on Lucas Sweeten's Schoolbus Home

Lucas' bus was featured on pp. 70-71 of Tiny Homes on the Move. Here's the latest:


April 3, 2015
Hey Hey there Lloyd, I wanted to give you an update on the bus. Also, I really appreciated you working with me for the timeline and putting my bus in your book.… So, for the update: I'll attach a few pictures of the bus. Naturally it's not finished. It most likely will never be, but as we know that is the joy of a custom mobile life.

Since the past pictures I've rebuilt most of the interior using wood I've cut, milled, stacked and dried (all done a few years back), or wood that I've salvaged. There's a 400 watt solar system, 12v lighting, converted freezer to fridge (not in the pics), deck on top, pull behind trailer/porch, and concrete shower. The floors are plumbed with radiant heat pex tubing.  I have a thermal solar panel although it's not installed yet. The grey water tank is in, and finally some curtains are being hung.

In just a few weeks I'll be taking her on the true maiden voyage. Granted I'll be driving back to where it was about 6 months ago but, I'll be living in it this time for the foreseeable future. It will be a short stay in Kentucky before heading to Maine, which is my final destination. In Maine I'll be attending a metalwork school for the rest of the year followed by a fine furniture making school. Thanks again and I hope you enjoy.

Big job. Looking more than unique (which of course it is)...Looking inviting and friendly and welcoming. Nice job.
