Recently (yesterday) procured a different living situation.

Got a friend that's got 14 rental properties...
Her last one had an office building, a mobile home, and a semi-insulated 38' long x 34' wide shop building with 12' wide door where they worked on heavy trucks.... Super clean, outside needs painted.

Only the garage door, roof, and windows are not insulated.


Guess where I'm putting my bus, boat, and storage items!!! For $150 a month with water, sewer, and trash paid

Just gotta pay electric.... Which has averaged $20 a month for last 13 months where I've currently been.

Blacktop and concrete from road to the door, and property was laid out for big trucks! Extra Wide turn concrete driveway.
Concrete pad to park suburban on.

110v electric everywhere and four 220v outlets
Solid steel heavy I-beam constructed and they even cut up a 20' piece of I-beam for work bench!

I can stay here a while and get my bus 100% converted.

I just need to eradicate or eliminate a lone pigeon.

I'll get there.... I can now take my time and work on bus through winter... Get it comfortable, then start looking for land. Baby steps.

I'm not in such a rush, I've slept last two nights on bus... Love it!
Sure wasn't looking forward to living on bus, & construction while on an RV site.

My initial plan after I bought the bus was to take about 6 months through the winter, live in my little cabin and get bus completed.
The land owners needed the property back sooner than my plan. (Was here 13 months and they would not take rent), so I can't complain. It just expedited my schedule.


Most land around here will be bus friendly.

Plenty of room to spare... On the sides!
But, only 2' in front of bus when garage door is closed

Next time I move it, I'll drive it in so I can get into back doors.

Spending a lot of time moving from old place this weekend.

And my lone pigeon is not alone, unless she just spent the night

much better than that BS HOA or city inspector that keeps bugging you.. though you'll have to come up with some living condition s and utilities till the bus is done...

if there was a mobile home there wouldnt there be electric, water, sewer so you could fashion ytourself up a room pretty easy in the shop to live so you can still tear apart the bus as needed?
