Re: 78' International Loadstar/Ward Body 8 window. Just a start.

Welcome! You will find that the 8 window bus is a great balance between living space and drivability. I have an 8 window Blue Bird on a Ford chassis and it is great, goes anywhere, and gives us just enough room to be comfortable. Good luck on the conversion. And don't forget the pics...

Just looked over your proposed floor plan again.... Have you considered wheel well placement? I know when I planned a similar layout on mine both the shower and the toilet ended up right over the wheel wells.... Not a great place to be trying to plumb things, not to mention the reduced headroom you would have in the shower.

what program did you use for that floor plan? I love the way it looks!
