Blue Bus Tree House

In this photo you can see the door we made from some old garage doors.  It has a stained glass window (a Big Lots find) and a strange fish/serpent head door lock carved from a board and decorated with sharpies. When we got the bus the original door was mangled and I never would have guessed that getting something to match the weird shape of the opening would be so hard.  It's a work in progress. 

 Of course, we would make more progress if I didn't spend so much time in the hammock!  A flock of vultures nests near the bus and they seem to spend all their time soaring on the wind currents above the river.  It's wonderful to lay in the hammock and watch the trees sway in the breeze and see the birds floating on the wind. 
It's also nice to hear the sound of Brandon's hammer or ax while he builds something or cuts firewood while I work on hammocking.  This picture shows the deck in progress, but the rail is up and it's almost finished now.  Some friends removed a deck from their house and we recycled it at the bus.  It's a little scrappy looking, like most of our projects, but it makes the bus feel like a tree house since it's perched on the edge of the slope.

I can't wait to give you a tour! The deck is really great. Thanks for the donation. Maybe we should get a plaque?
