Got my Bus!

I got the bug and got a short bus! So excited about this project and making a cozy little space for the hubby and I to get away. Seats were already out and the owner had converted it into a a camper of sorts to live in for 3 months. He built it with the cheapest materials possible, so it all got ripped out when I got her home and we had a nice bonfire. I'm retired so I have plenty of time to work on it, even if I'm lacking some building skills. I've learned so much from the folks in this group and have spent many hours watching youtube videos. Thanks for being such a great resource!
