But, say, Kevin... Are you not supposed to be building a Real House???
Well, yes - that is the plan. But since it is slow going while working and my wife still going to school for a little more than a year to go (have to earn it as I spend it, for the most part) it was my wife's idea that a "properly designed" space inside a bus would be perfectly acceptable for the next year or two - or possibly longer!
I already have a small shop to work in. I have a "bathroom building" with heat and plumbing and shower. I basically am a one family KOA out here on my 8 acres of hillside. We wintered adequately (although a bit cold - the bus is NOT insulated properly and it snows in the hills outside Spokane). So you can see why I am willing to do a bit more work for something not only comfortable, but aesthetically pleasing and also unique. Within a few miles of me, I know of several other folks who are living in skoolies full time. I will have to be creative to be "different".
We are leaning towards the bedroom in the very front, living room (and main entrance) in the back - kitchen in the middle. Got to be different!
p.s. I've been married for 25 years this summer - and no... my wife isn't going to remarry another bus nut if I have a mysterious "accident". Yes, she DOES have a sister - no, her sister likes regular houses. Sorry!
