Tour A Converted School Bus That’s Now Housing a Family of Five


This school bus was converted into an amazing motor home which currently houses a family of five. They completed this project themselves and did a fantastic job. This was a DIY project and they had no outside contracting help! Brian, the father, works in aerospace engineering and his wife is an interior designer. They put their talents together and created this amazing home on wheels. They began this project to find a debt-free place to call home and they achieved their goal.

To complete the project costed about $30,000 in total, but compared to most RV’s that’s a pretty good deal. The couple mentioned that they maxed out a few credit cards to push this project to completion faster.

The home is eco-friendly and is also free of any allergens and toxins to fit their families desires. There is plenty of storage space and their kids have space to themselves. The bus is 40 feet long and is also registered as an RV so it can be taken anywhere.
