About the Listing:
Building this Skoolie has been a labor of love of mine that lasted nearly 2 years, it took a year & a half longer than I anticipated..
I have spared no expense to ensure the highest quality materials went into the build as I planned on calling this bus home for many years but with a change in circumstances that is no longer the case. I am not a professional however I consulted with many throughout the process. With the exception being the beautiful matching Maple live edge river countertops made by DWF gallery I personally built everything you see. My focus was to make this bus feel like a fully functional home as much as possible.
I have stayed cozy in -28 with the Jotul wood burning stove & cool in the Okanagan summers thanks to the Fan-tastic fans & AC unit. On average one cord of wood(usually $250) gets you right through the winter. The Bus has also been completely sprayed in with closed cell insulation including the undercarriage.
I insured there are no leaks in the roof by spending a summer in the great bear rainforest just outside of terrace BC where the rain seems to never stop. I was able to be totally off grid for the period of 3 months. Using the 800watts of solar mounted on the roof & help from the Honda 3000 generator for the rainy weeks.
This is a great opportunity for anyone looking for a home that has the freedom to move or someone who is looking for an alternative dwelling for a plot of land. Lots of potential for this bus to become an AirBnB!
I could write a short book explaining everything that went into this build but I’d rather not. Instead please give me a call with all your questions or to set up a viewing. the bus is located in Vernon, BC
