Hi yíall this is my build. Welcome hope this is enjoyable.
1992 Thomas bus full size
The idea is to be able to sleep 4
Solar 1000 watts at 24 volts
Fridge
Stereo
Wood stove
Really want a catwalk shower out the drivers side emergency exit
No bathroom for pooping. Thatís what an outhouse is for I donít want dookie in my bus!
Sink
propane stovetop
Cork floor
Pine interior
Open floor plan
Itís gotta be really cozy and funky, have great attention to detail and have lots of unique usable simple things.
The bus will be my full time off grid living rig. Iím a single dad with 2 young teens and we can have some rad adventures!!

Did you just leave the inner walls in and bury them and the chair rail behind the foam board?

At first I was planning on removing them, but after looking inside 1 wall I decided to keep it in tact. The idea is less work and more r value I hope. There was no mold inside overall not really any water damage anywhere. This model seems to be pretty water right by design.

Awesome Build!
 
Awesome build so far! And I love the color, may I ask what color that is? And where did you get it? Keep up the great work!

Is it Kelly green?

It’s rust oleum from Home Depot
1 gallon white
3 gallons hunter green
1 quart brown
Lots of acetone to thin
Shot with hplv gun in the yard

Get that masking tape off quick folks I learned a tough lesson about baked on goo!

Also a little white goes s long way!!!

Cheers

I thought I was pushing it when I put a gallon and a half on my bus last summer. I went monotone though.

After adding 1:1 of green to white I was freaking out because it was so light. I ended up with a couple gallons left over for touch ups too. You really have to thin this paint out to get it to run through a gun well!

You got to thin that paint out just to roll it.
