Ceiling mess

Spot the difference? Right! The second one has that wooden door leaning against the back, instead of a piece of styrofoam.

How we got here

Our idea was to go for a bachy look, so it had to be wood. We quickly decided on white so it doesn’t feel heavy.

While at it, we also had to make use of the chance to add another layer of insulation and to lay the basic 24V circuits across the ceiling for lights. For a little while, our bus looked a bit like an airstream turned outside in.

Anyway, nothing a little grooved ply painted white can’t fix!

That’s the ceiling mostly done.
