My last post featured a Tiny Fire House, designed & built to teach Fire Safety. This time we are going to have a look at an old School Bus transformed into a Tiny Home.
The idea & transformation comes from a man who says,
I have never built anything. Ever. I’ve helped paint a few houses on mission trips and I helped install some plastic lattice once, but that’s about it.
My background is in graphic design and illustration. I always wanted to build a tiny house and I always wanted to travel. So I spent years playing around with tiny house designs in my spare time.
Ultimately I decided upon a school bus because I thought “Hey, there’s already for [sic] walls and a roof. Throw some wood and some light bulbs in there and call it a day.” How foolish of me. I ended up doing a complete build on the back of the bus.
He purchased the bus for $2000 from publicsurplus.com. He got it so cheap because the busses were being sold on a new site and not many people had known about the switch yet.
Although he doesn’t mention how much he spent on the transformation, he did get some really great deals, as he mentions in his posts which were published in this article.
