Love the idea of that greenhouse panel.. can even use it for a splash guard at the edge of a countertop etc.. has a nice modern look to it.

Getting that last bit of something done always seems to take the longest. I am pretty sure I just finished all the major structure for the interior - the steel tubing and such. To celebrate I re-hung the interior overhead panel in front too.

I am undecided on cutting a big hole in the middle of that front panel for storage, leaving it alone, or something else. Like everything else, it needs a trim panel because the ceiling is higher than before.

This bus is a series of tubes:


Nice to beige you again, beige:

Looking good aaron! Mount a monitor on the front panel for the passengers to watch while traveling, and make compartments on either side for storage, audio/visual components, games, etc.

Absolutely, especially when you have under 400 sqft for everything.....actually I have exactly 400 sqft.

This is why I decided to use 3/4 plywood for all my partitions....

That's actually what I ended up with - 1/4" birch for the walls, and 11/32" for the "floors" of all the storage holes.

Oh yeah, I'll be doing copper sheet countertops, so that's going to be an adventure.

I had to find space for shower, washer/dryer and separate restroom all together along one wall. I ended up with 4 separating walls. I almost had to count paint thickness to make everything work. 3/4 plywood only eat 3" of the golden space. I glad I used 3/4 plywood, it is super strong, doesn't need any more covering. It was relatively easy to measure, cut and install.

I am also thinking about counter top material. I might use 3/4 bamboo plywood covered with epoxy. I noticed some local grossery stores use bamboo conters at checkout and they hold everyday abuse very vell.
