Looking through all of our Motorhome Renovation Videos on our YouTube Channel I realised something! People keep on asking me how we renovated our Bedford Comair yet I haven’t really shared the videos here at New Life on the Road, I have tried writing it instead I should just share what we have already created!
So over the next few weeks I am sorting out the videos into easier categories, and sharing them over here so that if the questions keep on coming about how we renovated our Motorhome then I can simple point them in the right direction.
Sometimes I wonder if there is something/anything that David can not build? Or Repair? Today he makes it happen…he created a miracle.
Rebuilding The Back of Our Motorhome
The back of our Motorhome was so rusted out that basically ever section had to be cut out and re-built from new. Working with many different angles, many different shapes and trying to put it back together….almost like a jigsaw puzzle but without any picture to work from.
This week had to be the start of a heat wave didn’t it!! And we are on such a tight schedule…one where David has a million things to do and not enough hours in the day.
Yesterday was really hot, the day before was too – and it affected him big time. He had a melt down – not so much like our boys do (with screaming and tears) but more of actually melting. He almost got heat stroke. And yet he wouldn’t stop nor slow down. So I marched on out there and helped him to rig up some shade.
They kinda go hand in hand…cause with any new plans means that our renovations have either changed, or speed up or are done differently.
At first we thought we would go straight to Clermont for about a month to two months. Working there and relaxing at Theresa Creek Dam. But because of my older son and Dave’s parents our plans have changed.
Since we have stayed in our new spot (across from the Caravan Park that we were staying at) we have seen and been a part of so much True Aussie Spirit! Unless I was first hand witness I wouldn’t have believed it was possible.
Gee I so Wished that I had taken photos of the last three weeks. And what has been going on….
Never Mind ~ Will have to try and put it into words.
We are staying in the backyard of the most amazing couple. They are opening up their home, their hearts and their family to ours. We are allowed to use their kitchen – their amazing big oven – anytime that we like. Which our boys are loving because they get to have their all time favorite meal – Lasagna.
Sorry we have been super busy and very quiet! But we had a reason….we are both working around the clock every weekend to try to get our motorhome ready for renovations! The Roof (on the outside) is now finished, and looks really good. It took four coats to cover the whole roof top. Gee she sure has changed from what she used to look like!
Do you want to see What We Got Up to On The Weekend? ::
This week I have been getting ready with scraping back our motorhome so that David can paint it. If you know us, you will know that David is the perfectionist and he builds/designs/creates/renovate everything in our Motorhome! He has done all of the work by himself, and wont let anyone work on our Motorhome!
Yet I have so wanted to paint on the outside for so very long. Painting a Old Motorhome is NOT Fun! I thought it would be easy to get her ready for a new paint job, but first you have to scrap off the old paint…….
I kept asking David every day if I was able to do a vlog update of Rose The Lifestyle Challenge Bus! I was so keen to do an inside update of what David has achieved, and how much still needs doing but David wanted to wait until the bus was a bit cleaner!
Inside Of Rose The Lifestyle Challenge Bus
Yippee – today I was able to walk into the bus without falling over all of his tools, mess, dust, paint, nails, glue, wood and so much more! I have been busy vacuuming up as much of the dust as possible and David spent about two hours cleaning up his tools last night so that there was nothing in my way for an Inside Of Rose The Lifestyle Challenge Bus vlog! After walking through and looking at how much David has done to improve the Bus I was impressed….wonder what you think?
