[QUOTE=Josiahdr;140544]To attach the walls, couch, cabinets, etc..



I'm not armchair quarterbacking your build, just trying to wrap my head around how I might do it... because my skoolie is only a figment of my imagination right now.

I would want to avoid using wood structure inside of an exterior wall, especially under a window... I'm too concerned about leaks and rot and mold. Couldn't you attach stuff directly to the metal framing of the bus and to the chair rail? Or is there not enough material to grab onto there?

I think that's the diagram you're looking for. Definitely one of the most helpful diagrams on this whole site!

Sometimes it's easier to search via Google than via the Skoolie menu. In your Google search bar type: "site:skoolie.net" then follow it with your search terms.

I am not worried about it at all. I removed all of the windows and reinstalled them and they are 100% leak proof. I have videos on that as well. I highly recommend doing so as that way you can seal up the windows properly.

Ya I was thinking about building a saw horse and will probably do so in the future. On the other side I just sat down most of the time and scooched along the floor.
By the way I wasn't trying to nag or anything. I have hurt my back I don't know how many times. Labor jobs in the younger years. Just a pet peeve I guess.

I got you no worries. Didn't take it personal at all.

Thats the truth!

Got part 2 completed. I think that they will work out great. I am pretty pleased with myself.
