Walls or ceiling first?
When I build out my bus I'm trying to figure out what order to go in. I assume that this should be like a house.
1) Pull seats, panels, and insulation out.
2) Fill holes from seats.
3) Frame in walls.
4) Plumb and wire.
5) Do ceiling.
6) Do flooring.
My plan is to frame in any walls before I do the ceiling. My thought is that you don't build a wall under a ceiling, you build the frame work and then finish the wall and ceiling. Is this the best way to do it?
I was thinking that I would attach 2x4s to the ribs in the ceiling, then frame in the wall based off of those.
When I do the ceiling I am pondering 1x2 pine strips going the length of the bus. I am thinking about tongue and groove. This may require a router table. (No, honey, I needed it for the beautiful ceiling)
I know they are curved, so I'll have to kerf and bend them. I know that I should not screw the wood into the ribs, correct? How do I attach wood to the steel? When I attach the pine strips to the studs, can I use short nails that will not touch the frame, or is there a better way to attach them?
