Indoor skoolie workshop!

This is exciting!

Assuming the current bus goes for a decent amount on ebay, I'd like to start building a few (or more?) of them per year. I can't do that outside in the winter.

I've been keeping my eyes open for an indoor space to work on buses. Today i found a 54x90 foot pole barn for rent. it has cement floor, a pair of 16x16 doors, a pair of 12x12 doors, 220 v electric and water.

Sounds like a deal may be in the works.....

Hey, ya might even be able to mount an overhead crane for those pesky roof removals / jacuzzi installs, huh? Sounds like it could be sweet!

That would not be a cheap lift.
