Yesterday started a Re-model on my Thomas International School Bus.

Up till this point, Bus has had queen bed, two bunk beds, full size couch, kitchen area with sink, stove/oven, small refrigerator, Room A/C. There was a bathroom sink area that is not plumbed in yet.

Has a power inverter that needs replaced, and a 7k Onan generator.

Will be uploading plans for my build but demolition has started.

Still trying to get my pictures to upload...keeps failing.

Pictures are jpg and not over the file size.

Not sure what the problem would be.

Thanks Scooter, That was entirely too complicated.

Anyways i will take some pictures of the demolition tonight. I had some moisture by one of my wheel wells in the back, I am taking up all of the old rubber and flooring material in order to put down new and Stop some of the rust.

All of my electrical has been ran on one side of the bus( Where the ac unit is), and my electrical panel is bolted to the floor underneath the bunks. I am going to be moving the panel to the wall and running the wires in conduit. To this point everything has been just laid along the floor underneath cabinets where it wasnt bothered.

A buddy of mine is coming to get the full sized couch, I have a replacement RV sleeper sofa in order to save space and create another area to sleep.

Sorry about the photo quality my phone doesnt take great photos. I have decent lighting which was all replaced with LED bulbs.

Anyone have any good recommendations for integrated Push buttons? That way passengers can turn lights on whenever needed. I am ordering magnetic push lights for the ceilings As well. In the past we have also used Battery Powered push buttons hung on the wall.

Having a blast tearing things up.

what is the inside center height on your bus?

Looking forward to the renovation, this is the type of bus I'm in the market for.
