It's awesome to see so many Georgia folks here!
I met a really nice family from Savannah at the Georgia Tiny House Festival early this year. Seeing their bus (especially after looking at all the tiny houses) is what really convinced my husband and me that a skoolie is the way to go.
This forum is a fantastic resource, and I am amazed at what a helpful, knowledgeable community we have. I've never been particularly handy, although I can rock some art and cosplay stuff, and I'm finding that many of those skills transfer to more practical construction. (An angle grinder is sort of like a dremel on steroids!)
Google's site filter is your friend when it comes to research. Just type a few key words and add site:skoolie.net to your search. There are tons of helpful videos on youtube also. I can't wait to see your buses!
