Looking for a work place to do my conversion in New Jersey

Good day good Sirs & Ladies,

My wife and I just purchased our new project and have been bouncing off the walls with excitement!! We've now been running into the issue of where do I work on my bus?!? I know there is the Worcshop in Mass but I was hoping to stay a little closer. If anyone knows of a cooperative workplace or has a place I would be able to work in please let me know.

Thanks everyone!!

Fist, where is the workshop in mass? Lol I just moved here from NJ.
Second, where in NJ? Lots of land down towards South Jersey. Quite a few farms out west. Look for places that have semi truck parking (I wouldn't in areas like Newark or Kearny because of crime) but there was a few places around my old town that the owner charged reasonable rates to park.

Thanks for the tip on the semi-truck parking! I've been contacting farmers but I think I've been going about it all wrong. Is there anyone that you used to work with while you were in NJ?

The place in Mass is called The WorcShop. Here is the address: 243 Stafford St. Worcester, MA 01603

And the webpage:The WorcShop - Home

Even from where we are in Jersey this seems like the best place to undertake some of the work. Its just a couple of hours from here and they have all the tools already. The monthly rate won't break the bank either.

Hey Fhazie, did you ever find a shop in NJ to do your conversion? and who is your insurance carrier or agent?

I'm also in NJ and it's been difficult!
