We started with the front room.
I should tell you now about my helper. On Saturdays and Sundays we work on the bus. His name is Shawn and he is quite a craftsman.
I have known him for 10 years. For three years, he and I did land surveying. Often times we were in the woods doing boundary searches.
It was during that time that my legs became permanently scarred because of chigger bites. I had to quit that job.
What was nice was that, although we worked out there in the oppressive heat and strenuous physical demand, we never once became cross with one another.
I knew then, we would always be able to work together. I helped him build an addition to his house and taught him a lot about that stuff. I eventually ended up selling him most of my carpentry tools. He went on to do many other carpentry jobs.
He has been helping me on the weekends.
Trust me, if I had to do this all myself, it would be far from this stage and I may not have had the foresight to employ many of his ingenious ideas. So when I mention, we, it is Shawn and I.
Now to this pic. The table and seats are still there, but on the passenger side, things are starting to be removed.
At the bottom left of the picture, you'll notice a metal rack that is covered with grey carpet. It housed two car seats. There was another one, right next to it, and has been removed.
Under that one was the fresh water tank(30 gallons). It has been removed and installed in another area that you will see soon. The PVC pipe and the water inlet are still visible in this shot.
Also, you may notice, that the passenger side fold down desk unit is gone.
That little plate on the floor is to access the top of the fuel tank. I can also access that area from the outside so I chose to cover it up, as you will see.
In this photo, you are looking towards the rear of the bus.
