Bus conversion question/parking?

Was't sure what to name the post but I'm doing research about purchasing and converting a skoolie however I have a dilemma. I currently live at a place where I don't have space to park the bus and work on the conversion does anyone have any idea on places that would allow me to park and work on the bus there? I obviously would be willing to compensate. I live near atlanta any help is welcomed.

thanks

Welcome, glad you're here.

Recently a member bought a bus and asked the apartment complex if he could park it behind the office and they let him.

I found a little piece of land between two garages and rented it.

I also posted an ad on craigslist looking for options and received a few emails with offers. Most were further away than i wanted, but it did get results.

There is a sort of magical response from people when i share what i am doing, it is amazing how people light up and want to help. Mostly what i hear over and over again is that is something they have been dreaming about doing. I can't fathom any sane person working 40hrs a week that doesn't day dream about what we're all doing.

I get my best results when follow my heart, wait for something to reveal itself, and when i invite guidance from the Universe, the spirits, and Heavens, The Sun, and the Wind.

Good luck!

Unless you have an HOA it is not up to anyone in the neighborhood. Check your local laws. If it is not a commercial vehicle, if it is licensed and registered, you may be able to park it on the street in front of your house and move it every few days.
