School Bus Conversion Bathroom Framing and Paneling

The shower pan for the school bus conversion bathroom came from a place online. It cost about $120.

Then I used 2 x 2 lumber to frame up the bathroom around the shower pan.

A 2 1/8″ Milwaukie hole saw bit attached to a regular Ryobi drill worked well for cutting the drain hole through the floor.

The bathroom framed up with 2 x 2 lumber. The shower area was also soaked in polyurethane.

I made a few attempts at  scribing the roof shape onto a template before finally just crushing the cardboard into place. Then clamping and cutting the template in place.

The template worked great for all three panels that required curve cuts. I used trim screws instead of nails.

Trying to keep the bulldog cool on a hot summer day. We used a random park in Portland for this part of the build.

    Looking fantastic! I notice, however, that you didnt open up and insulate the ceiling. Is that intentional?

      Hi! Thank you so much. I didn’t open up the ceiling because there is already some insulation up there. It would have also been a ton of work to open up the ceiling then recover it. The bus will eventually be located on a piece of land. At that point, I may cover the entire bus with a roof and insulation of some sort.
