Today we announce our completed skoolie! It’s done. We hope you enjoy the video.
Final Silicon Touches in the Bathroom
V didn’t think I did a good enough job on the bathroom so she dove back in there to put even more detailed thought into little room of water. She sanded the grout and the ceiling down to a smooth finish, then used the stain to reseal the room. Finally, she went to war with a particularly sticky brand of silicone. It was a battle, but at the end of it, she was able to accurately explain, “the bathroom is done.”
Final Skoolie Electrical Upgrades
I upgraded some dangerous wiring I had set up. A few months ago I installed Romex 14/4 on a 20 amp circuit. Thanks to the YouTube community watching our build videos, I was alerted to the fact that my 20 amp circuit breaker is not of suitable restriction to limit the power to NOT burn up the 14/4 Romex, should an overvoltage event occur.
Now the 20 amp tandem breakers have been switched over for 15 amp single breakers. We now have a safe electrical system on the bus.
Next, I added a water heater switch to the internal house bus brain. The water heater switch is there for extended departures on the bus. Now we flip a simple switch to conserve gas. Huzzah!
Skoolie Spice Cabinet
We created the spice rack from Christmas tins. V painted the tin and I screwed them into our cabinet walls.
Look at those Happy Faces
We started this conversion in March of 2017 and it’s now December of 2017 as we declare the project as completed.
The smiles on our faces are testament to the relief we feel knowing this project is complete.
Though it took us three times longer than we anticipated, we are happy that we can call the school bus conversion project, done.
It will soon be for rent on Airbnb. I will link the listing below once it is live.
Thank you for reading. Please let me know if you have any questions in the comment section below.
