JayBird the saga of a man and a dog building a bus

i bought a bus... a school bus non the less. hmmm what now. i have had floor plans sprread across the kitchen table, stapled to the walls of my mind, and even a few apps downloaded on the i-pad to help "place" things. and they all have gone to funk. well i guess the first thing to do is to get rid of those seats and make some thinkin room. so, out with old and in with the home.
after 6 hrs of night driving i get it to its build site, right next to my 16ft camper i use for work.

Welcome to the nut house! Nice bus!

If you're in a funk, try posting your layout thoughts here. Folks on this board are really great about giving constructive feedback, especially those that have already or are in process of converting.

Re: JayBird the saga of a man and a dog building a bus

it has been over a month since i posted on here but that doesn't mean my hands have been idle. 12-14 hr work days then into the bus to bang around a couple hrs a night. 99.99% of the pics i post will be at night time. its not that this is a top secret project that can only be touched while the sun is sleeping, its just the way my schedule lets it work.
