School bus conversion wall framing and insulation

I ran 2 x 2 lumber just below the windows. Then used 2 x 4 lumber for the rest. Predrilling and sheet metal screws worked here. The Ryobi battery operated circular saw was able to make it through the 2 x 4s.

I cut the 1″ foam board to fit each slot. The plan was to run wiring in the walls but then I decided on conduit under the bus.

The Ryobi inverter generator was quiet enough for me to work on the bus at night. It also only used about a gallon of gas every 12 hours.

After the conduit decision, I ended up doubling up the 1″ inch foam board and foil taping all the seams.
