Red face Hi! I'm modifying an existing conversion

Hi. I'm new to the forum and I just bought a bus that has already been converted into an RV but I need to do some significant modifications and remodeling. It's an International Thomas 1997, 7.3 diesel.

I am considering living in the bus full time as an option, if I like the way it turns out. Work that needs done includes:

-Modifications to the existing bunk beds
-Add a kitchen sink
-Replace the benches with benches that can convert into a queen bed
-Remove the tub and replace it with storage shelves
-Replace the bathroom sink with a shower stall
-Replace table and its benches with larger ones
-Replace driver's seat chair with one that swivels

Admittedly, I'm not super-handy. But I'm willing to learn and at least one friend who is handy has offered to help. I hoping that folks on this forum will be able to help me as I learn.

Looking forward to the journey!
