Partially converted skoolie project for sale In Vancouver! 18k OBO

This beloved bus was being converted to a fully sustainable tiny house by my partner and I but we split up and I am planning on pursuing a Masters program and its honestly really sad that I wonít be able to keep the bus and finish it, but I really just donít have the space or time to be able to afford it on my own. Itís a great project that doesnít need a lot more to finish and live quite comfortably- especially in the wake of COVID and the coming summer! I am hoping to sell this quickly as it needs to be moved from the farm on which the it is parked on soon. The bus runs and drives, on propane too, which we were really excited for and ended up making the decision for us when picking a school bus to buy.
The bus is partially converted, with almost everything you need to finish it already in it- this includes some tools, lumber, plywood, tiles, foam for a custom mattress, pipes, tanks, solar panels and electrical system, a propane heater, and a wood stove amongst other bits and bobs. We had originally bought the bus in 2018 for $4100, converted it a little during the year and moved in for 2 summers while we worked. Subsequently, we found it hard to manage continuing work, the project and school. It has been parked on a farm in Langley, BC for around a year. All in all we put in around 20,000 on the bus- At this point I just want it to go to someone keen on the project and am not really interested in making any money or profit off of it so make me an offer!!! Iím not currently aware of any major repairs to be done on the body or engine for the bus and weíve driven it with no problems a few times. We were in the process of transferring the insurance to a Recreational vehicle and have all the paperwork for this- it shouldnít be too long before it could be declared as so.
We created a website, at the time, that has a hoard of useful information pertaining to the busí details and the updates we made ( There are also design plans up on it that could really help if you decide to keep a similar floor and electrical/ plumbing plan. I would recommend going through the write ups on the website for extra pics and info but Iíve put in some of the key details below:
- Fully insulated (ceiling with spray foam, 1.5 inch subfloor)
- Flooring finished
- Bathroom framing finished and concrete shower base installed (needs to be tiled)
- Tiles
- Shower panel fitted
- 3 water tanks ( 50gal x2, 100gal x1)
- 2 solar panels (200 W each)
- Solar cells (1KW)
- Pre-cut foam for a mattress (we had planned on making an L-shaped couch that doubled as a bed)
- Solar electrical box
Deep cycle batteries (x2 6v 235 A.H )
Inverter (3000 W Pure Sine)
ML2440 MPPT solar charge controller (12v; 40 A Charging current)
- Small fridge
- Small wood stove
- Removable windows
- Composting toilet frame
- A bunch of tools (jigsaw, sander, drill, etc.) and construction material (red guard, lumber, pump, ipex pipes, etc.)

Vehicle specs:
- 1991 Chevrolet
- Odometer: 464,469
- Propane engine
- 38í from nose to tail

For questions or to inquire, you can respond here or email (! As long as youíre serious Iím more than happy to hear any offers =)

Somewhat Interested

Hey sorry to hear about your situation, looks like you put a lot of work into that bus already. I do not intend on buying the bus, but I would be interested in perhaps buying some tools and equipment off you as I am also located in Vancouver and have just started my build. Let me know if you are interested or if I can help somehow. Would also like to know the process of where you found to do your build. I bought my bus and its sitting in Duncan right now so I'm scrambling to find a place to do the actual build. Let me know
