I was tying my shoes and about to head out the door to work on my next bus conversion this morning when I was caught off-guard by how pretty my ole girl looked in the morning light. Thank you, bus. You're a very good home for me. . . . #diaryofabusman #skoolie #homeiswhereyouparkit #busconversion #lighting #offgrid #sheeparemyneighbors #tbt
School buses have long been used to shuttle kids home after class, and now these yellow vehicles are being turned into homes themselves! That's right -- one Denver-based builder is putting an upcycled spin on the tiny home craze, turning retired school buses into chic mobile homes.
For around $27,000, Charlie Kurn can turn a bus into a fully livable, eco-friendly home, complete with a kitchen, bathroom, and drop-down bed, as well as electricity and water. The best part? They are still working, drivable vehicles -- any adventurer's dream.
“I love knowing that from where I am I could walk five or six feet, sit down in the driver’s seat, start the bus up and start driving,” Kern explained to Zillow. Kern initially converted a bus to address his own needs, but he's since constructed four additional houses for fellow explorers.
