I’m finally getting back to working on the bus this week, after spending the last couple of months focussing on my business over the busy Christmas period.

The first task is to make the bus watertight. It has a lot of leaks! In order to do that, I need to get up onto the roof.

Now, I must point out that I am VERY uncomfortable with heights! Even using a stepladder makes me nervous! So you can imagine how I feel about being up on the roof of my bus which is 3.5m (11′ 6″) above the ground!

After looking at a lot of different options (most of which were either quite scary for me, not very safe, or too expensive) Dad and I came up with a plan to access the bus roof, from the roof of my little shack, which the bus is parked alongside. It not only makes it much easier and safer for me to get onto the bus roof, I think it will also be easier to carry tools and stuff across as well.

Check out the video to see what we built.
