Re: The bus with no name...

I just wanted to share what evernote looks like when used with low to mediocre skill. :-p

err... Fair warning: it may be sort of difficult for some to watch. IE: might not be a good thing to watch in public or at work if you're not comfortable bringing up very personal subjects in said company.
I have no problem with all these ideals. I, personally, have been living a relatively minimalist lifestyle for a decade or so. All of the skoolie lifers are in the same boat. I know many people who are living in what are essentially cabins who are also doing the same thing. In a sense, I'd say that video is simply preaching to the choir here at skoolie.net.

My problem lies in the "tiny home" buzzword and its many evangelists. It's this "new" old idea that has popped up recently and seems to be on the tongue of every trendy yuppie. A means for marketing; something to talk about in a couch circle. But then, I'm just a young curmudgeon

It's important to remember that only 2 or 3 generations ago, most people in North America were also living the minimalist lifestyle. Western culture has had a stint of prosperity well beyond the rest of the world, but the playing field is levelling. We don't need giant wooden boxes cruising around the interstates to change the direction of the consumer world. People just need to learn to live within their ever shrinking means. Modestly sized houses and apartments are ok. Stay out of debt. Consume if you want to, but don't be manipulated by advertising. To be honest, I expect that most tiny housers will be living back in their parent's basements in a year or two (no disrespect there! I'm currently typing this in a parent's basement ) since living in a small space is not for everyone...

This was not meant to offend. The hope is that it simply comes across as a slightly differing perspective, still along the same vein.

That's pretty much the point. I was mostly just stating that not everybody gets it, and there are people out there that fall in that bucket that are genuine.

I couldn't agree more. Great post.

I'm not the tool guy, and have never done anything like this, so I had to step back this week and just cuss and glare a bit.

Also looks like I need to take the gas tank out & clean/refinish it, so that will be a good time to use the cutting tools...

Fun!
I zipped out my walls this weekend with an angle grinder with a cutoff wheel. I even used the cut off wheel to cut a + into the stubborn stripped screws, and that made it easy work for a hammer and pry bar. Might be easier just to use the grinder, and grind em off. If you don't own one, you can get one as little as 30-40 bucks i think at big box hardware stores.

Re: The bus with no name...

I was wondering if anyone had any input on taking out the heater and lines. I really dont want to build around them and i will have independent heat going down the road. Do they serve any other function other than as a heater?

Nope they're just heaters.

Re: The bus with no name...

Unless your engine is overheating, in which case they become auxiliary radiators! I don't wish this on anyone, but I've been there: a scorching hot day, an engine getting close to overheating, and the heaters cranked
