If you need a shorter build time but still need room for kids I might recommend a loft over bed like
or and adult bedroom and bunks like the Good News bus
just some food for though. If your going to have a longer time frame a roof raise is a pain in the butt, but rewarding.......at least I hope it will be when its done.
Thank you !!! I have seen those videos. We will move to our property in 5 years so the bus is so we can go there on vacation and then in 5 years when we are ready to build we will already have the bus. That is why we are converting now so we have the space then and not feel like we are all on top of each other during construction time. Especially because by then we will more than likely be a family of 6 instead of 5 and will more than likely have one more adult joining us to help building so we need additional space for all of us....
We have absolutely no idea what we are doing so we are taking it slow. We also are novices in building and DIYing so ... reading up as much as we can before we start. I will for sure start a new thread once we bring the bus to our property and post everything we do and all the progress so you all rxperts can hopefully guide us.
