MOVING IN FOR GOOD!!! // Emotional Transition Full-Time Tiny Home Bus Conversion Living // S04E58

It has been a very emotional week full of highs and lows and we struggle with fatigue. But we pushed through seeing the light at the end of the tunnel and knowing that if we finished our check list, we could finally move into our home for good!

We started the week of sending out postcards to all our supporters in the Rehabi-Tribe and then picked up our couch cushions! We are really happy with how they turned out and it gave us a boost of energy to tackle the next projects. 

Mela took the left over fabric from the couch cushion covers and created a seat cover for our drivers seat which made a huge difference.

Next we worked on getting electric outlets and switches installed in the kitchen and work area. We decided to install an illuminated light switch in the kitchen to turn the power on and off to the water heater.

This way we have a visual confirmation for if the water heater is on and can manage our power usage by only turning it on when we know we need hot water.

Then we secured our refrigerator in place. We had purchased a
Magic Chef 10.1 cubic foot Refrigerator Freezer a while back for the bus and it was thrilling to see how much space we would have inside after living with 4 cubic foot mini fridge for the last 3 years.

After the fridge was secured we added our Galanz 4-in-1 Convection Oven, Air Fry, Toaster Oven & Microwave into place.

The next day we added the final touches to our "Catsita" (our cat litter room) by cutting a hole through the floor and adding a 12V fan and vent pipe to hang over the cat litter box. This way the smells will be pulled out of the room and to the out side.

The last little install we did was to add our 12V Omni-Directional Gimbal Fan in the kitchen. This will be great for circulation to the front part of the bus as well as act as an exhaust fan for when we are cooking in the kitchen.

After giving the bus a good cleaning, we brought clothes, kitchen items and toiletries and were finally ready to move in!

There are still plenty of little things to finish our bus conversion, so we are going to take the next couple weeks to settle in, slow down a little and get prepared to get on the road. 

We won't be vlogging on YouTube over the next couple weeks but will be sharing some tours of our solar/electrical system as well as share some consolidated videos sharing our entire journey of converting the interior of our bus into our tiny dream home.

We will be posting weekly updated to the Rehabi-Tribe while we settle and pick up vlogging to YouTube again once we start traveling.

Big thank you to everyone who has cheered us on so far on our bus build, getting support from the community has been such a help to keep us motivated and accountable to completing our home.

Pilot Light Illuminated Switch

We bought this switch because the light glows when power is on and gives us a visual confirmation for if we have our water heater on.

Galanz 4-in-1 ToastWave Convection, Microwave, Toaster Oven & Air Fryer

We have been using this in the house for about 2 years. It is a great option for getting so many cooking options in one unit.

12V DC Quiet Cooling Fan Silent

We bought a couple of these early on with plans to vent out the heat from Don's computer area as well as the smells from the cat litter room. We choose this model because of its minimal electric requirements and very quiet.
