Just Getting Started!

Hi Everyone,

This summer I purchased a previously converted school bus but still ended up deciding to tear everything out and start over!

I am documenting the processes here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCfK...Sc7wCW3_11trYA

Currently the deconstruction is almost complete but the videos are a few weeks behind.

I would be very interested in any general feedback or comments.

It looks like one of the previous owners must have found a deal on white paint.

Is that at roof deck up there? Interesting.

You seem to have the bus down to a shell. Are you going to mod the roof any, or are you just looking to insulate better?

Insulation and rust prevention due to condensation are the reasons for stripping.

Some of the roof deck lumber for supports needs to be redone. The decking is recycled plastic lumber.

You're right-on doing the insulation properly!
