Check with the base that he is stationed. They may have an auto hobby shop, wood shop, or a large vehicle storage area where you could park it.

Thank you for his service.

i am having a similar issue. we could work at our current house but our driveway isnt long enough, and the garage isnt big enough either. we could try our yard but our city is pretty enforceful and would likely call it "blight" (we got a 300 ticket once for having a truck cap on the lawn and grass over 6 inches). we found through craigslist a man renting out two spots on his property for rv and is willing to provide electric. he is a few cities away and as acres. it could be an option for us, although i'm not a fan of what he charges, it would work for the time being.

i have also asked my work (which is in the same city i live in but is off the beaten path and we lock the gates at night so hoping the city wont come by). my boss hasn't decided yet but finger crossed. my other thoughts are maybe another local businesses parking lot for the build. good luck on finding yours.

Not having somewhere to store it cost me my first bus. And cost me TONS of money in city code violations etc.
I lost money taking that free bus.

Now I have good friends with tons of acreage for days. But its a 20-25 minute ride to the bus two towns over. Best I could do, and proud to have it!

I would NOT buy a bus until you have at least 2 places that you can store it. ALways have a backup plan!

GEEZE!!! That's an outrageous ticket! I hope you find something too!

Yea, I'm thinking I might just have to buck up and drive to the outskirts of town... my friend just bought property with 2 acres so I might just commander the a little part of it. Haha
