the bus

I am wrapping up a yearlong conversion project of a 1992 b700. the roughly 30' bus posed some challenging size constraints, but i feel like everything seemed to just fit wout a 1/4" or less to spare. making the bus winter travel ready was a project all its own. the fresh water system is enclosed under the bus w constant warm bus air circulationg from the bus to the box back to the bus keeping it from freezing. the bathroom is all oak w porcelane toilet and sink. the shower pan is properly sloped to drain and is sprayed w rhino liner for truck beds to permenntly waterproof it. the wainscoating and woodwork has 6 coats of polyurethane and silicone caulk to seal it. hopefully that does the trick. the two opposing couches fold down to make a king size bed with 1/2' to spare. the wood burning fire place in the rear is surrounded by fireproof wall and floor. there is a nice looking stainless steel stack on it trimmed nicely at the top where it goes through the roof. the kithcen table is made of brass w a driftwood table leg. the table folds down into 6.5' memory foam bed. the kitchen lamp was tricky to attach securely but turned out nicely.

Beautiful Job! Welcome !
