I was a student and now I'm working upwards of 65 hours of week between two jobs. My budget is also 10k, but I want to have it done within a year. Hopefully less, though, haha. I know the basics.. buy the bus in an auction or on Craigslist then gut it out, seats and all. From there, the insulation and everything. I'm not 100% sure on any of that but I'm pretty sure that's the basics on how to start. I've been eyeing some buses on Craigslist for less than 3k in South Florida.
