I'm not trying to preserve the school bus look in any way. I just want things to work as well as possible. An RV door installed nicely looks great. I prefer the ones with really big windows in the door. I'm still inclined to use the original bus door halves welded together to make one solid door that can use standard household hardware. If it doesn't work I can always get a decent RV door. I'd just go to a junk yard that had wrecked RVs.
No wood floors here. I'm still walking on my puke mats, although these are light brown like linoleum, if you don't focus on the L-track. The flooring is usually under carpet that gets thrown away annually anyway. This was my second winter with an uninsulated floor and there are thoughts of loosing the L-track so I can insulate properly and maybe even install hydronic floor heat. I'm short enough to do that without a roof raise. I definitely need floor insulation. I don't want to be driving through Texas with the air conditioner on and have a hot floor, much like I have a cold floor in a warm bus now.
This is the ultimate fort build. Fits right in with my second childhood.
