Just Getting Started

Hi Everyone,
My name is Jayne and I have decided to build a Skoolie for myself. It's a 2004 Blue Bird International with lift. I am going to use the lift for my 2015 PCX150 Honda Scooter. This way I have a garage for it while traveling and always have in and around transportation available when parked at a camp site. I will be using a Natures Head composting toilet, instant on-demand water heater, 13,500 BTU roof air with heat strip, MaxAir remote and thermostatically controlled exhaust fan, 300 Watt 12V solar with 4 deep cycle batteries, 120 V and 12 V refrigerator, seat bath tub, two burner stove and stainless double kitchen sink. It's not a big bus and things may get tight but it's something I have been dreaming of doing for a long time. Now I hope I have the strength and stamina to get it completed. As soon as I figure out how to up-load pictures I will do so.

Sounds like you have a plan! I'd recommend sketching things out on graph paper / Google sketchup before you start. Keep in mind that locating the tanks for water/waste (if applicable) will greatly affect your layout!
