Re: Jake's first skoolie...

Thanks browncrown! We'll see how spacious it looks after I put the overhead storage in!

Re: Jake's first skoolie...

Smitty...no, there is only 7" on each side of the bed, so I have a shelf there on each side to put alarm clocks, cellphones, etc... We'll have to literally "crawl" into bed, lol...

Re: Jake's first skoolie...

Didn't get a ton done today, had to do a brake job on a friends avalanche, for which she was eternally grateful...lol... Anyway, I got my first overhead storage cabinet in today. Just needs doors and sides. Hopefully I can get the one over the counter done tomorrow and the sides on them. The one over the counter will be about half the depth. You can also see the luan I put up to cover the 45* part of my ceiling. I'll probably paint it where it is exposed and just leave it behind the cabinets. FYI...anywhere you see luan, it will be painted (if exposed at least).

Re: Jake's first skoolie...

Your dinning table and couch are exactly what I have planned. They look wider than what I am figuring I can get away with. What are the dimensions on width for both the couch and booth?

Re: Jake's first skoolie...

Sorry for the delay guys! I was gone on a business trip, and then have been very busy since I got back. The fold out couch is 27 x 71 with seat depth of 21". The C-shaped booth is 44.5 x 88 with seat depth of 17.5". There is about 16" inbetween the couches. It's a little tight, but not too bad. Let me know if you have any more questions.

In other news...I've only got a little more done on the bus, because I've been gone. I stained and polyurethaned the counter and just finished building a hitch, but that's about it. I just got an 8 x 17 enclosed trailer to store all of our stuff in and needed to get the hitch done right away so I can move it. This might sound kinda wierd, but we are consolidating everything to be able to either fit in the bus or the trailer. If it doesn't fit, we don't need it

Re: Jake's first skoolie...

Well, after a very long hiatus, due to a couple moves and putting the bus in storage, and not having any time, I am happy to say that we are back in action. I am getting the bus moved onto our property for the winter (we rent, so this is a big deal!), and our goal is to finish it by spring. I am going to be moving it this sunday, so will be posting pics soon!!

Re: Jake's first skoolie...

Thanks! I used torx head exterior screws. Similar to sheetrock screws but heavy duty and coated. I predrilled everything, as I was going into steel bracing.
