You say that you are just about to move in--will you travel? Use your SKOOLIE as a stationary residence? What?
To other SKOOLIES, if you haven't read this complete thread you ought to. Much can be learned.
Thanks ol trunt.
Truth be told, I've had a little help here and there. Mainly the tile and a the wood sheeting. The wife has helped a bunch also, especially in the beginning with the tear out phase. It has been a fun ride thought. For sure. Now that things are visually coming together it is just awesome.
As far as our plan for the bus..... here goes:
Basically the wife and I can't seem to stay in one place for very long.
We live a very frugal lifestyle with our "cost of living" being very low in today's standards. So for the last 3 years we've been back in our hometown with a plan to sell everything, build a mobile apartment and get on the road. And that is what we've done. (fyi we're not interdependently wealthy and right now the wife is working while I'm on the bus 100%)
Our original plan was for 4ish years but it looks like it will be right at 5 before we take off in August. (It took us about 9 months to figure out what we wanted to try and live in) We bought and sold a few of the incorrect vehicles before finally settling on the bus.
So to answer your question... travel and stationary residence would be correct.
A little of both depending on where the wind blows us.
I'm glad you have enjoyed the build thread.
