Re: What is the one thing you would do different?

I would have insulated much better than I did before laying flooring. I would have done more body alterations before painting. Other than that the nice thing about my skoolie is it's basic and I could tear down my walls easily and make alterations as my vision has evolved of my desires and my wife demands .LOL

Re: What is the one thing you would do different?

The ONE thing I would have done differently would have been to raise the roof. Due to winter, space, and available help (zero) I did not do it. I am 6'1" and after adding insulation to the floor (2" total) my hat rubs on the roof now. A raised roof would have also simplified cabinet installation a lot. Also could have used "factory kitchen cabinets" instead of having to custom build. A flat inside ceiling would have been much eisier to work with and do like smitty and others and insulated up top well and had extra storage space.

Oh Well, Maybe with the next bus project.
