Re: Project Niles Skoolie

Thanks everyone,

Yep its 1/2inch cedar. I used 1x.5" strapping and created 4 horizontal runs then we notched the 1/2 cedar where the runner is where the old bus seats attached to the wall. That way it lets the wainscoting sit flat on the strapping and saves us 2 full inches in width. That doesn't seam like a lot until you only have 90.5" to work with lol.

Re: Project Niles Skoolie

Nice looking floor, its starting to come together for you keep up the good work.
Did you glue the floor down , or is it floating?
tks

Re: Project Niles Skoolie

You have that classic RV look in there. I mean that in a good way, as once-upon-a-time RVs aimed for the look of a vacation cabin by the lake. You got that look.

Re: Project Niles Skoolie

GB we bought the floor tack stuff as it just prevents the floor from moving but when we did the test fit and trim it was such a tight fit there is no where it can move so we left it free floating. One thing i love about this bus is that everything is so square a good sign it was built well from bluebird.

Thanks bus-bro, I am going for the mobile cottage look. I don't want it to look like i threw in a bunch of extra stuff i had around the house. Not that there is anything wrong with it its just not us. Clean, open, cottage is my rules for this build

Great job your doing. Looks really good.

Good to see your kids helping. My kids loved the bus conversion.

Re: Project Niles Skoolie

Its been raining a lot the last 2 weeks here so its made it hard to do much work on the window installation.

I made seat mounts i will use for now until i can find some reasonable swivel bases.




Re made the base to the doghouse. The old one was pretty rusty.



Finally today the rain stopped and was sunny! Got lots done but did take a good wrap to the head when my dad dropped the old door frame on me when i was looking.




Going to do all the outside sheet metal work this weekend. I am looking for forward to seeing what it looks like all sealed up....

Re: Project Niles Skoolie

Well its been awhile since i did an update on here. Lots done and were almost to a point to start the bathroom.
I have purchased all the electrical (control panel for 30 amp service, inverter) just have to install it.

Bought a dresser to convert to kitchen cabinets







Now onto the wall




These are the seat mounts i purchased off a guy that showed up in my driveway with them. Now my seats rotate 360 and slide. I had to make an adapter plate to match my seats to them but they work great!




Installed A/C this weekend which i will take some photos of later on in the week
