Welcome to Get Your Skoolie On! As we convert our old school bus into our tiny home on wheels, we're going to share detailed videos, guides & tips.
In this module, we cover the tools we're using in our build, how to use them safely, and how to build certain tools & jigs to achieve artistic creation!
In order to confidently buy a bus that will meet your needs, it takes a little bit of research. In this module, we show you how we researched, inspected and purchased our old school bus. The insight we share could be the difference between buying your perfect bus that lasts a long time and buying a lemon.
While just jumping in and building sounds like fun, it's important to start off with demolition! In this module, we're going to show you how we methodically deconstructed our old school bus so we could then build it out exactly how we want it.
When traveling full-time or even being an occasional weekend warrior, securing your Skoolie is important. Gain peace of mind that your Skoolie is secured while out and about.
Bodywork can be daunting. We're going to show you how we safely modified our Skoolie interior. Watch as we work with metal & wood while learning different techniques so you can build your own Skoolie!
From upgrading the old school bus windows to custom skylights, and underbody storage... We'll show you what we did so you feel more confident taking on big metal projects.
Harnessing the power from the sun is an excellent way to juice up an off-grid power system for a school bus conversion. In this category, we're going to dive deep into the entire system as a whole and how to set up each of the components individually.
Routine Skoolie maintenance can help prevent costly repairs and provide peace of mind when out on the road. These lessons will cover what alterations we have done to acclimatize our bus to all seasons as well as what we do to maintain the engine and various components of a school bus.
Freshwater & showers are essential to life (and happieness). Leveraging Brian's 9 years of firefighter wisdom on pump operations, hydraulics and water system layouts, we show the details of how we put together our water delivery system so you can create your own.

Besides detailed how-to videos, you'll also get access to ALL the guides & checklists we create, as we create them...
Considering buying a school bus but you're not sure what needs to be inspected?
Our detailed visual inspection checklist is modeled off of the essential components to check when inspecting a big diesel rig/fire truck (Brian was a firefighter for nearly 9 years so he knows his big rigs).
This checklist is geared to help you know the lingo when you are shopping & avoid buying a rust bucket.
When we went bus shopping, we had a ton of questions that needed answers. Knowing what to ask allows you to avoid costly repairs BEFORE your conversion even starts. This document is a list of those questions to help with your school bus shopping journey!
Build your own beautiful curved skylights for your Skoolie (so you don't have to duck down to look out the window).
In this 45 page guide, we list all of the tools, materials, measurements, and tips along with a TON of images showing how to confidently build these skylights on your own Skoolie.
Every solar system is different. Figuring out how BIG (or small) to make a custom Skoolie solar system can be confusing (but it doesn't have to be!) We put together an easy-to-use calculator to help guide you through creating a custom solar system that will work for your specific needs.
This diagram shows the relationship each solar component has to each other, what wire sizes we used along with fuses. Consider this a road map to connecting a solar system.
By drawing out a wiring diagram, we were able to figure out how much wire we needed, how many outlets, switches, and other electrical necessities. Check out our 110V electrical wiring diagram to see who we did it.
Need internet while off-grid? Whether you're a digital nomad or just want to stream videos, our Mobile Internet Setup PDF download walks through three internet setups to suit your needs. Boost cell signal & get your own local network setup in your Skoolie or RV.
Check out how all our water lines are run from one component to the next. We show exactly where to put shut off ball valves, check valves along with filters so that the plumbing system flows smoothly and every tap is drinkably clean.
Ever dream of an endless shower with a limited water supply? Well, we found a way to make it happen! In this diagram, we show how we set up our shower loop so that the water is filtered, fresh, clean, and ready for re-use in the shower.
There's something to be said about being part of a community all focused on similar goals...
Our Get Your Skoolie On Community is a safe place (away from the trolls of social media) to connect with other builders from around the globe. Come participate or just be a fly on the wall.
Over the past few years, we've seen a massive change on social media where one side of a conversation is being brushed under the rug, YouTube channels have been taken down, groups and social media accounts have been wiped out.
We want you to be able to BE yourself, speak your mind & connect with others on the same path, always!
In the growing Get Your Skoolie On Community, we encourage conversation because that's the only way to learn & grow.
To keep conversations organized, we have topic lists broken down for every part of a Skoolie build, including earning an income from the road (because nothing in life is free!)

Our big goal is to inspire others to think outside the box & get creative with life. You see… Life pushed us to want to live differently. Think differently. And BE different.
After being knocked down a few times, and falling deeper into debt we realized we needed to make some big changes. Story after story we kept hearing about people digging themselves out of the financial hole when they decided to go tiny!
That’s when the idea of doing a school bus conversion rolled into our lives.
We figured there is no better time than now to exit the rat race and figure out how to live off-grid, BE self-reliant and community focused.
So stay tuned for more on living in the wild, growing food, and making old stuff new once we get our skoolie done.
Thanks for BEing here! - B + E
