PLUS...

Bonus Guides, Checklists & Diagrams

Besides detailed how-to videos, you'll also get access to ALL the guides & checklists we create, as we create them...

Pre-Buy Visual Inspection Checklist

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.

 

Top Questions To Ask The Bus Seller BEFORE You Buy

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! 

 

SMART & SIMPLE GUIDE:
DIY Scenic Skylights

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.

 

Skoolie Solar System Calculator

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.

 

Solar System Wiring Diagram

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.

 

Off-Grid Mobile Internet Solutions

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.

 

Skoolie Freshwater Plumbing Diagram

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.

 

Recirculating Shower Plumbing Diagram

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.

Hi, We're Brian + Erin

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
