Seeking Workshop in Phoenix Area

Hello Skoolies Community!
Were long time readers first time posters here!
Last May we bought a 2004 Ford E350 with a Collins body and worked on the conversion in our backyard in Vancouver Washington. We made tons of progress while the weather was good but it became too cold and rainy for us to make much progress in our outdoor workshop there. So we made a leap of faith packing up our lives and driving down to Phoenix Arizona to continue work our Skoolie. We are looking for help finding a space in the larger Phoenix Metro area to park our bus and set up our workshop. We are also willing to do work/trade, nannying, and volunteer work to stay onsite if any guesthouse, casita, or perhaps rv is available! Ive attached the flyer we have been posting around Phoenix.

Call or text us at 360-762-0034

Thank you all so much!

That is some really, really nice woodworking. I dare say really, really, really nice. I think we'd all appreciate more pics.

Like Musigenesis said...wow, that's beautiful work! I love the Christmas tree, too.


From the pics, it looks like you're pretty much done! What are your to-do items left? We can't help with the permanent work space...and you most certainly don't need our help with any woodworking or cabinetry!...but if your needs involve some help with welding or electrical or plumbing you're welcome to come spend a night or two here in Northern Arizona.

Great woodwork! As said before, it looks quite complete as it is now. I'm thinking the move will do y'all good anyway ... the weather is so nice in Phoenix.

This carpentry is a wee bit above "capable". I especially like the spindles on the ends of the book shelf and the shadows they produce - do those go into holes in the ceiling panel?

Also, what are those screws you use on the ceiling? They look great. A lot of skoolie builders don't seem to like exposed fasteners, but I feel like they're difficult to avoid in a bus and should be celebrated. I'm using flat-headed brass screws but these here look nicer.
