Y'all bring up an important yet highly overlooked aspect of building a skoolie.


Some have found storage units that allow work to be done. Most storage units will not.


Some have found RV parks that let work to be done. Most do not.


Some have found an owner of land that let them build. This situation is hard to find. Look on CraigsList and other sites for land for lease.


You may be able to find warehouse space you could lease. Take a drive aroud the more industrial parts of your city and talk with the tennants.


Good luck.

I can offer space for 6-9 month on my property in Northern Maryland, close to DE state line on I-95. Has electricity, water, skidloader and machine shop. Plus, I will be building out my box van there and can assist when needed.
