I also heard something about window counting? This is the latest size I had in mind:

2006 International 30 Passenger School Bus Low Miles | eBay

I don't think I would want or need to go any bigger than that.

Oh ok. Thats more like 20-25 feet.

Two big things against this particular bus are that engine and the location.

Kid count a be misleading. Mine is 26' overall length, but rated for 20 people.

Yeah, I was just using this as a reference.. Before this thread, I probably would have considered it, but now I know to look a little deeper.

Would you mind posting a couple pictures of your bus? Maybe one of the outside, and one of the inside, just to get a reference of how much space you have?

Can't wait to see the progress!! I think that looks a little bigger than I am aiming for, but different strokes for different folks! I would love to see pictures of different size buses (I know there is whole category for these pictures), side by side, and compare, so I can get a better feel for how much room is in the different sizes, once they are close to completion.

I started out looking at 6 window busses similar to the one in the ebay link. I mocked up a few floorplans, and realized I needed more than 13-15' of space to live in.

I'm only like 2 hours away from that bus. But I agree the later International engines were pure crap. At least it has air brakes.
