Smile New to Skoolie.net, but a year into my conversion!

Hi all,

I've been reading the forums on skoolie.net for over a year now and always find them so helpful and so I finally made an account. When I first bought my bus, I naively thought I would get it all done in 6 months (haha), well I'm a year and a half in and I have walls, insulation, all demo done ofc, and now I'm moving on to solar (scary lol).

But I'm excited! Every time I complete something it feels so empowering. I knew absolutely nothing when I started! I literally didn't know how to countersink a screw, or even what that meant. I've done a ton of reading on solar/electrical and I'm looking forward starting it!

Just wanted to introduce myself and say hi and thank you all for being here and giving advice!

Thanks,
Emily

Welcome to Skoolie.net



That's a good looking conversion. I dig the in-tact stop sign, terrific. We are looking forward to seeing the work you've done inside & hearing more about your solar plan.

Lots knowledgeable folks here who can guide you with your solar, battery, and inverter requirements. Don't hesitate to ask for clarification from those with wisdom & experience.

We love pictures, drawings and diagrams (especially pets). Keep 'em coming, Emily.

Hi Emily! :: Lovely Shuttle. You're certainly farther along than I.

Hi Emily! It's Brian & Arrow - we met in Bentonville! I've been loving watching your progress with your bus on insta!
You've got a great bus to work with and you're doing quality work faster than I am, that's for sure. I'm on here figuring out wiring stuff currently.
Keep it up and give a holler when you're around Colorado and Utah and let's meet up!

Brian hi!!! That's so cool that you just happened to see my post! Thank you, that means a lot. I sometimes feel like the work is very slow, so that's nice to hear. I'm also working on my wiring. You might check out explorist.life if you haven't already. He has a really great website and sells in-depth wiring diagrams for vans/busses. I definitely will let you know when we're in the area!
