Gallery: Clunky Old School Bus Converted into a Sweet Earthy Home With ...

The furniture is similar to that used in boats to ensure minimum disturbance during travel

It’s not always warm up in the mountains, so this beauty has a rustic wood-fired stove that you’d see in any earthy library, except this one is keeping a small bus nice and toasty. To keep it from being over-heated though, it’s possible to simply crack a window to promote natural ventilation.

The bus home is lined with wholesome timber and features the same kind of secure shelving and furniture that one might see on a boat to ensure minimum disturbance during travel. It also comes with fully functioning plumbing. Although old vehicles such as these aren’t the most fuel-efficient, and it would be unwise to travel too much, it seems almost certain that overall this project has a smaller carbon footprint than the average new home.

    I was searching the web for a vintage bus to house a funky popup shop sort of thing when I stumbled up on this dream! Inspiring! Imaginative! In-genius!

    Thanks for the inspiration! I have been the owner of an ’84 Bluebird which I had intended to convert but the money wasn’t there. Will re-double my effort to find that money!
