Collier-Woods bought the 31-year-old public transport bus on eBay for £4,500 (approx $7,400). “I had a look on eBay and found that double deckers were not as expensive as I would have thought, so bought one for £4,500. I quite simply wanted to give people the experience of staying in something like this, and I think people are interested because it’s the type of bus they may have taken to school.” Determined to maintain its vintage look, Mr. Collier-Woods spent over $16,000 in renovation materials as well as various furnishings found on the inside and, of course, an abundance of bright green paint.

For six months, the carpenter worked tirelessly to restore the aged bus into a cozy vacation rental with two double bedrooms, a kitchen and even a log-burning stove.  It sleeps up to six people and is a great accomodation option for anyone looking to visit the English countryside.
