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.
Great, What are your plans-Use some of what's already fitted or strip and start anew ?
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
-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.
