Hawaii skoolie conversion
Hey yíall, aloha!
My family was just gifted a school bus after being fired from and kicked off the farm I was managing due to covid.
Seats are out and just ripped up subfloor yesterday. Was a lot easier than I anticipated! Anyway, this bus will not be driving, and will be under cover for the remainder of its life. We also are gonna build kitchen and bathroom outside.
Iím wondering how this changes things? Most all the conversions I read about, are on the mainland, dealing with hot and cold, driving, and have kitchens and bathrooms.
I am removing screws and grinding rust, gonna fill the holes with something, do I need insulation on the floors?? Does the steel create moisture? The temp usually drops about 10-15 at night. Iím not worried about temps, just moisture.
After that decision, heavy rust primer, rust enamel. Then the floors, 1/2 inch or lower plywood to get me more head room (Iím nearly 6í3Ē) then will probably put in some 100% waterproof click flooring (for the kids, you know)
Anything Iím missing? or is there something you said to yourself you would have done if you didnít have to worry about hot summers, cold winters, or the kitchen and bathroom taking up a bunch of space, please share!?
