Hiiii from Southern California!

Introduce Yourself…

Hi all. I am Soulkandi. I just found out i will be going on permanent disability and am going to FINALLY join the van life. I have wanted to build a mini house for over 10 years and now need to make myself a space to be during the transition and beyond.
To say I am excited is an understatement. But as I am joining so late I am having a hard time finding anything that doesn’t destroy my budget. Any CURRENT resources are appreciated! I am in southern CA and looking for a box van (although a Skoolie is much more my dream!)
I am finding lots of solar resources but not as much of how to lay out the plumbing… i saw one here… i will keep searching… if you know an amazing link please share!
I just wanted to introduce myself! I am excited to find this resource and hope it fills in the gaps from 100s of hours of videos.
Thanks for being a space for this!
