So far I've gotten out my wheelchair lift, taken out all seat, removed the rubber from the floor, and have painted it in a protective coat. I completely understand feeling overwhelmed, I feel it almost every time I do something new to the bus. It feels like alot, and in all honest it can be.
Alot of people want to make there school bus look and feel like a regular home or rv. Which you absolutely can, but you don't have to. You don't have to completely take out the floor and walls. It's very important to make a sub floor, and laying out wood and insulation. For the walls, you don't need to worry about them. You also don't have to make some big water system, or connect a fancy toilet.
I'd say, work about your floor and you 100% have to seal as much of the inside of the bus as possible with some type of sealing paint. Otherwise, do whatever you are comfortable with.
