where to build? (1 Viewer)

Here's my question for ya Guys. We have this bus that needs a lot of work done on it. Had about six rows of seats, about 20 feet long. The issue is that we don't know anywhere to do said work. We have a good amount of stuff so we need to be able to unload our shit while we build structures, as well as need access to electricity for power tools. We're based around LA but could probably get elsewhere.

Any suggestions?

you'd be surprised what you can get from a simple craigslist ad. i know LA is obviously a lot different from Austin, but I put up an ad once asking for a place to park my bus while living in it and working on it, and i got a great farm to live on for $150/mo. no water/electric, but i had a cheapo $100 generator that took care of most of my electric needs and just imported water from runs into town.

my advice would be to emphasize that you don't do drugs and are just looking for a decent space to work on converting your vehicle into an RV.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills

    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $75.00 of $75.00 - reached!
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $100.00 of $100.00 - reached!
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $115.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
