School Bus Transformed Into A Tiny Home Is Amazing. I’d Totally Live Here.
A big yellow school bus transformed into the most coziest home ever? I remember riding on school buses and never would have imagined the potential they have as actual dwellings! Mira Thompson did though. Her and husband Jeremy worked on this bus for almost four years. The result is a totally impressive tiny home. What originated as a 1989 International school bus that they purchased in 2011, has turned into a 37-foot long home with many modifications added, making this an extremely cool and cozy dwelling.
They used lots of reclaimed materials in the build, like Douglas Fir flooring, cedar shingles siding, and wood from an old house for the ceiling.
The kitchen offers lots of prep space and room enough to cook a family meal.
The couple scoured flea markets and garage sales for most of the decorative items, such as the boxes that double as open shelving. Not only did being frugal keep the cost down, it also raised the overall character and charm.
They also made good use of the oversized wheel wells, using one as a love seat and the other to support a cast iron stove for heating. Check out that tin wall!
One of my favorite aspects of the build is the bedroom design, which brings a gypsy hobbit inspired feel. There’s a ton of drawer space and hidden compartments for storage in the surrounding frame.
Check out the sitting area above the bedroom, Jeremy’s favorite space to jam on his guitar. Notice the detail that went into the wood paneled ceiling.
You’ll find beautiful accents throughout the house, such as the plants and lighting fixtures.
The stove was special ordered from Amana, and a 1959 Frigidaire refrigerator was a lucky find, both of which use propane.
