Hi nice to hear from you, i watch one of your videos (cute family) your bus project will be so much fun and a great learning experience for everyone involved. I will try and follow along. Its fun to see other people dealing with the same thing we were.

Michael,
Awesome job and awesome dream that you are living. My family is on the same path. Currently at the ďfloors, walls and ceiling out so do we raise the roof or move onĒ phase. So encouraging to see someone at the end of the journey we are on. I guess your journey is now starting. I hope you keep posting I would love to follow and learn from your experience.

What did you do on the outside? Looks real sleek. I see windows covered did you take off rub rails? Is it the paint? Any way looks good brother.

The seats swivel around to sit at the counter or tv in bed while watching a movie

Your bus is beautiful. You all did a great job. I bought a bus in Dec. and just started this summer. I could only paint the roof and get the floor down. It is so exciting.
