Got my first school bus today

Hello Everyone.

I just bought my school bus today. So excited! You might know this feeling.
I am building my house these days. I have to move out current location before my house is ready. So, I bought cheap RV. but, That was huge mistake. It leaked roof before and need a lot of work. I can fix it. but I don't have time for that at this point. anyway, I also need more living area to fit my big family.
This time, I want to buy something doesn't leak roof. and I figured out, unless I buy real nice expensive one, I have same risk.
So, start searching for school bus. And, I found right one in right price.
It's one of 4 91 Thomas that Cowlitzcoach have.
50k miles on odometer. Runs good. everything work so far I could test.
No sign of rust at all under frame. I know that school district area doesn't have salt for road. Because I lived that area before.
deal was easy & smooth, got temporary tab on rear window, drive to my home site for 2 hours. driving bus was easier than I worried.
and. They gave me 5 set of keys! surprised.
Will remove chairs soon & will start fill up with furniture.
I only can start real conversion work after house build is done.
I am pretty sure I will have lots questions. please give me advice.

Thank you for your time.

I think its between 30~35ft. didn't measure it yet.
My wife keep asking it also for floor plan design.
I am almost done removing chairs. Than, I will measure it.

Thank you.
