  • So this popped up for sale locally for not too much money. My kid have been youtubeing School bus conversion videos for a while now that has led to some day dreaming and chin stroking so we took this as a sign to just go for it.

    It´s a Scania Vabis from 1964, some previous owner has used it as a race depot van/race car transport and installed a caravan kitchen, sofas, table and a shower.

  • Cheers! We have already started to strip it down. The old chip board had some damp spots and the shower floor and walls smell of mold.

    The plan is to
    -remove the old insulation and plastic mat, add new breathable insulation (wool, cellulose or flaxfibre) then wooden walls and ceiling.
    -build a sleeping area in the back
    -solar panels on the roof
    -new kitchen
    -new bathroom
    -sofas/table/social area up front
    -maybe a small wood stove

    We want to build everything with sustainable materials/avoid anything that emits nasty stuff in order to create a healthy indoor climate. And because it looks and feels nicer imho.
