Fresh skoolie meat here!

Hi all! Name's Brady. My wife and I just purchased a "mostly" converted 1995 Thomas Built school bus and I am simply here to learn as much as possible. Currently have our cali king bed in the rear with two sets of bunk beds for our 4 kids. We have most of the framing done and are now looking to plumb in our 100gal water tank and a propane stove and fridge. Also have a small wood stove going in.

My wife and I are very used to small spaces as our kids have been raised most of their lives in various tiny houses. This is just the first small home we owned outright and we couldn't be more excited to get it dialed in to our liking. I'll say THANK YOU here and now for all the info I'll be pulling off this website. Cheers!!

Welcome Brady
There is a wealth of information here for your perusing pleasure. We're hoping you've documented what you've done with photos because we like to see, and you probably don't want all of us over at your house. Show us where're you're at in your build and it's highly likely many people will interject ideas.
Nobody's Business

Fresh Meat ! Wolf Pack !


Finish filling out your bus profile specifics/location and get us up to speed on your build, as Robin mentioned. We are a nosy bunch.

Whatcha doing with that big bus, Brady? Where are you going to go?

It will be great to get your experienced input on small spaces life. My wife/kids laugh in my face when I mention it as a possibility.

Thanks for the warm welcomes! I will get more specifics and some pictures up as soon as I'm able to. It's encouraging to see such an active community and I'm excited to get to know more!
