    I agree, more interior pics would have been helpful…its kind of hard to figure out what’s where. Looks pretty nice though, especially the kitchen.

    If I had a spare $10K lying around (ha! don’t we all wish) I’d be tempted to spring for this. The hard work of gutting the bus and hopefully insulating it is done. I’d just have to reconfigure it some (and yes, holding tanks and solar, possibly some kind of HVAC).

    Looks like the outside still needs painting too.
