Remove the last 6 seats. Remove flooring (rubber and plywood).
Power wash the inside of bus (which means locating a power washer). Find and purchase/order appliances.
tBOY & tGIRL:
Find out whether bus can be moved to a better location for construction (with current landlord). Find out when bus can be moved to rented land (tCarpenter thinks it's best to build on site). Design layout and map it onto cleaned bus floor.
Prepare his work space next to bus. Design & gather materials to create a roof over the bus (with tarps etc.) to protect from rain (which is inevitable) while constructing loft + skylight. Continue to come up with creative building/design ideas.
tBOY and I have until Friday to complete our tasks. tCarpenter will be there bright (hopefully) and early Friday morning to get started. (Where to start still remains to be determined!!)
tBOY was working from home today (typing away on a computer and having phone conferences). When he was done his workday, he got to the bus work. After pulling out the last seats, he got to work on the flooring. It was back breaking work and tBOY has a completely new appreciation for skilled trades work (and me for tBOY!)

When I was sent on a mission to buy a 'good plug-in power drill' I was a bit worried that it would cost hundreds of dollars. I was pleasantly surprised when it turned out to be only be $99! (And it wasn't even on sale.) Phew!
I have to admit that when we first decided on a school bus as our home, I was a bit worried that people would think that we are wacky (and we are, I guess!) But the response has been overwhelmingly supportive and enthusiastic! A new friend yesterday is now considering one for herself. 3 boy neighbours stopped by today and expressed their envy for a big yellow school bus of their own.
