Hey everyone
Just saying hello. I've just bought a Volvo Olympian double decker bus. I'm based in England uk and it was a used as a school bus.
I have found this site to be very very useful and visit most days.
My first of many questions I am sure is

How do I plan the layout if I don't know about electrics and plumbing etc?

But I can't do the electrics and plumbing without a layout or a plan.

We are going to live in the bus permanently and the bus will not be moved often if at all

Cheers

u first determine what side is the plumbing and electrical normal hook up locations. ie usa is left side. then u make your floor plans from there. so the point of course is research first.

We are on revision 9 of our floor plan. You can keep changing it until you start building it. One of the biggest things I took into consideration is placement of the water and gray tanks and the plumbing going to it.

That's the same bus but mine is dirty and looks a mess at the moment. I think water is the big one and will plan around that
