Water heater and fresh water tank showed up today... and we got our flooring in this week too... flooring is going to be "vintage acacia" 12mm laminate with some slight texture to it...
Here's the water heater... Atwood 10 gallon. Things are finally coming together...

Loving your build. I especially like your roof raise mechanisms. I was going to use scaffold and jacks, but I like your way better.

Does your water heater come with an inside control panel? I have a suburban 10 gal that I got from a salvage. But it has some cut wires on it.

Keep up the great work!

No inside control panel on the water heater, it is the pilot light only model. I went with the pilot light only to save electricity... Not a huge deal for me to have to go outside to light it...

LOL, I couldn't help but think.... "Not me, I want to see cheap guys using Harbor Freight Tools!"

I know I am weird, but if you drop a $15.00 after coupon HF cordless drill into a mud puddle working around the bus, you aren't out the $100.00 or so a Makita, or Bosch would cost you....

Having said that, I do have a few Makita tools in my shop.... They do what they are supposed to.

I am loving your progress so far. Good roof height, and WOW that is a LOT of insulation in the floor! You should have an added bonus of the bus being quieter going down the road with that much insulation packed in there!

Got a couple of the smaller windows in this weekend. It's starting to look like a RV instead of a mobile bomb shelter... I installed them both with VHB tape. First time I've used it on something that weights more than a couple pounds. This stuff is amazing. After a day or so I tried to push the windows back out and the tape held 100%. I went ahead and caulked them in yesterday afternoon. Next will be the two larger 4'x2' windows.
