Foot soldier bus

I have been using this site for over a year now, but to my shame I have only been a lurker. Now that I have "compleated" the project and have more time Ill share. Our bus is a 81 Thomas International. My bus is 36' long and has a MV404 with a 5 speed. This bus is our full time home as we are christian missionaries. I bought the bus for $600 from my pastor, with only 72000 miles on it + they even donated most of the material!!!! As soon as I learn how ill start posting pics

Well actually its already finished. Just havent posted the final pics yet. But thanks. I think the most difficult part was comming up with a floor plan that my wife liked and would accomodate all the kids.

Worst part about a floor plan is thats the second thing ya gotta do. After the seats come out, ya gotta have some kind of plan to do the rest of the bus with. And if it's anything like mine, my floor plan was a base idea, I've been modifiing it as I go along!!
