Rust on the Prison Bus

The prison bus project is turning out to be ... a big one. Not in square feet or anything like that, but in terms of the overall complexity involved in orchestrating so many systems in such a small space. This past week I've been fighting rust and trying to clean up the metal sub-sub-floor, but all the while I've been thinking about systems.

Whereas a house needs one electrical system, the bus will have two ... and multiple power sources. The plumbing, similarly, drains in two directions: black and gray tanks, as opposed to one simple sewer line. And hiding the back sides of all of these systems in such a small space will involve some art.

So these weeks involve rust remediation, but also lots of planning. I'll post some layout pics as they come together.

  1. multiple systems would do a body good too, me thinks.
