Removed my heater for now so it's out of the way while I work on the floor.

Consider replacing that heater with this: - a hydronic baseboard heater.

Basically the coolant of the engine will run trough and heat up the radiator inside and you will have heat ONLY when running the engine.

You can add a valve before to turn it off on summer, is basically the same kind of heater you pulled off but flat and with no fan.

You go, nip the rust right in the bud. OSPHO that and it'll be looking sharp. Luckily looks like just surface rust and not much deep pitting, that's great.

I was pretty excited with the condition of the floor. Will definitely prep it and get it treated.

Itís been a hot minute, but the build continues. Itís slow going with work and the bus being 40mins from my home. But Iím happy to have a safe place to store my skoolie while I slowly make progress.

Pretty much done with deconstruction and about to transition into construction. Pretty darn exciting.

This is a fun time with a sense of accomplishment for your bus. Now the spending starts.
