Obviously I want to make it comfortable and practical, but I think maintaining that bus feel would be really neat (this means no walls if i can help it). I really like the way this one worked out and would like to have a similar feel once mines finished

I am not going to bother with plumbing. I really want to keep it simple. That being said I may have an outdoor solar heated shower with a curtain that folds out off the side of the bus...maybe. Im thinking a woodstove for heating and a basic rv generator for basic electrical needs. No concrete plans as of yet.

I am in BC Canada so there will be lots of wilderness centered trips and not as much city use.

How do you all go about posting your photos? Do you link them from another site?
Are you in a rush to get this thing going? Take your time. I want to have mine relatively finished by June. You don't want to build it out, covering access to inside the walls, only to find out the thing smells terrible because of mold in the insulation. It really doesn't take that long. Get a few people with drills and drill out the rivets, itll only take a few hours. I did all the screws in my bus (750+) in just a few hours. Though my arms were dead afterwards.

I have been using that picture you linked for inspiration.

To post photos, I use Imgur (imgur.com) and upload them to there (resize to 1024x768 or so first) and then copy the link from there (BBcode) and just paste that. When you submit that it will embed the picture.

I agree with Porkchop. I found a lot of mold in mine. Another quick way to get rivets out is to use a grinder with a cuting wheel. Cut the head of the rivet with an X, than chisel it off. I did so of mine that way. Others have used this to remove the inside rivets.

I too like the picture you linked to, nice and clean.

I use http://www.flickr.com for my photos, Flicker creates the link for oyu that you can copy and past into your post and you can select what size photo you want in the link. I use 800 x 534.

Re: A Bunch Of Dirtbag Kids In Over Our Heads

Thanks for the tips! Yeah, I have been doing some thinking myself and for what its worth there is really no reason that I shouldn't pull those walls and roof out. Even if it just be for peace of mind. I just missed out on an awesome hardwood floor deal which sucks but I am still a little hung up on deciding my layout so its not the end of the world.

Re: A Bunch Of Dirtbag Kids In Over Our Heads

Takes a little lookin' around, but there is a special mill type bit made for shaving off rivet heads. Got one years ago for my BB which had about a thousand of the critters that had to come out. With a big drill (1/2" Milwaukee), it whizzed through them fast without chopping up the sheet metal. Sorry, no idea where it came from or where it is now. Rock on.
