We are so impressed by our hybrid inverter - what an amazing piece of equipment! This machine not only coverts our DC to AC power but manages mains power and battery maintenance when on mains or a generator. We custom designed our power system to our own needs, pretty much we have designed our system to run 12v, 24v DC and optional AC for non DC appliances. Yesterday we ran our hot water system off the batteries via the super combi... batteries didn't feel it. Air-con ran well too however, we have 24v fans which we will take preference as they are much more efficient.
adding a side hall did make us worry a little about weight distribution but with careful planning, we don't think we did too bad! and 3 tonne to spare! unlike with our caravan we can carry a little extra!

The front is now almost complete. We've come to terms with the fact we will always tinkle and do modifications, just ticking the boxes to get her on the road.

Air conditioning units are ugly and in a small space even uglier - we have bulkhead unit which will be hidden behind wooden louvers

When your doing stuff in a bus that's never been done it's almost impossible to buy stuff already made - so, a custom made louver for the air-conditioner made from ceiling hanging beam. Now to see if it works

There’s been a lot of bus planning days happening just recently so the girls have had to learn how to dress themselves... we think they’ve got it covered! 😂
We are finding working around the wheel arches difficult for the layout but the hardest part right now is having too many options!

We love these moments, the ones between the craziness of our lives. The moments between the hard days and the exciting days. These beautiful, calm moments that soothe our souls.
These babies of ours have completed our lives, made our world whole, mended the parts of our hearts that were broken and given us the drive to push forward into the life we have dreamt of but didn’t ever think would be possible. We’re eternally grateful to have the privilege of being their parents and can’t wait to watch them grow.
Bunnings trips are serious business. Watching babies try to drive shopping trollies on the other hand is hilarious!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I have a feeling we’re going to be making a few trips to good old @bunnings in the coming months.

Landon’s number 5 of 324 reasons why we’re choosing the #buslife. (...and what we believe to be one of the most important.)⠀
Giving importance and time to looking after our own mental and physical health.⠀
We have always tried to keep busy as a way of subconsciously distracting ourselves from the hardships we’ve had in the last few years, but now it’s time to deal with that, come to terms with what has happened and move forward to become stronger individuals.⠀
Once we made the decision to try a different approach to life nothing about our ‘normal’ lives seemed quite right any more, so here we are finding our new ‘normal’ and focusing on us!
