Hello from Michigan

Hi all, we bought our 99 bluebird recently and have started gutting the insides. Me and my fiancee are planning on moving into the bus full time come next October when we move out of state for her grad school. Excited to get more into it but full of questions that hopefully this site will be able to help answer.

Cheers! -Tony

Welcome.

Reading is going to be your best friend. All the answers you need are waiting for you over in the build thread section, complete with pictures. Asking questions will only get you opinions, not true experience.

Do you have a budget to build a bus for full time living?

$20,000 is easily spent when trying to build for full time living.

Please post pics. We all love pics.

Welcome, Tony.
I have a friend who drove down here to FL in a school bus he and his mom converted. They lived in it for years and sold it to help fund their house.

Put up some pics of yall and your bus!

Right now we haven't set i final budget but we are selling our house come spring and are going to move in with family until the bus is complete. with the house being sold we will have more than enough to finish the bus and float us for a while while i find a new job when we move. ill get photos up as soon as i start a build thread.
