The floor has been sealed and painted and I welded the seats directly to the floor. Both are on swivel mounts that rotate 360* and stop every 90*. I put down a layer of 3/4" foil faced ISO insulation on the floor and covered it with tongue and groove oak flooring. (Scored for $100 and I still have some for walls beneath windows)




I built a box to contain the WVO filtration and pumping equipment on the rear deck, and plumbed it into the bulk dirty WVO storage tank in the back of the bus.



I mounted just under 400W of solar panels to the roof. Made the brackets out of angle iron and 1/8" plate, secured with self tappers into the outer skin of the bus and siliconed all over. The wires in the picture are not what is up there now. It's much cleaner now, just don't have any pictures.


Just today I finished insulating the walls and the ceiling with 2 1/2" ISO board that I got from an Amish guy. Furring strips made of 3/4" ply are screwed directly to the metal support ribs with wood-to-metal self tappers that work awesome. In order to get the bends I had to kerf the insulation and the roof furring strips.

After all the insulation was put in I put up the interior paneling made of 1/4" plywood screwed into the furring strips, and I plan on painting it eventually. I ran wires behind the paneling for recessed LEDs in the ceiling.



Put the four dogs wood stove in on top of the dirty WVO tank with some single wall 45* chimney pipe connected to a double wall class A pipe passing through the roof with a high temp silicon boot sealing it off on the outside. It's surrounded with cement board and I plan on making some heat shields to cover it, with a 12V fan that will blow air past the stove and heat shields.





I'm currently working on the house electrical system and have the batteries hooked up and power is being produced by the solar panels.

I'll have a rain cap on the class a pipe coming out for when I'm driving and burning when it's calm. I was experimenting with the extension during test burns, might need it if it's windy
