Marsha’s School Bus Tiny House For Sale!

Just a reminder that the belongings pictured do not go with the bus, but the porcelain sink is permanent, and other items inherent to living in the bus do go with the bus. Also, this is a “dry” camper, so no electrical hookups or water/sewer hook ups though they could be easily added. I do run an electrical cord into my bus, but I bring my water in by way of 2 1/2 gallon porcelain coffee pots, and bathe in the sink which empties into a 5 gallon bucket under the sink.

Highlights

  • Transmission is about three years old
  • Engine has new hoses, seals, in the last two years (runs great!)
  • New injector module in the last 8 months

    Hi Marsha,
    Good luck with your sale. I’ve followed and always admired your design on this Bad Boy. Can you say anything about the insulation situation? Sounds like it’s perfect for living in warm weathers at any rate.

    • Marsha Cowan March 7, 2017, 11:54 pm

      There is no passenger seat. This is a bus for a single person. That could be changed, of course. There is nonside awning or screen house. I go to the park and sit and meet friends, and play cards, and such. We like the openness.

    • Marsha Cowan March 7, 2017, 11:56 pm

      Sorry Annette, I think I answered your question somewhere else.

  • tegmapat March 6, 2017, 7:11 pm

    Am I correct in assuming there is no type of passenger seat? Also, is there insulation of any type in the vehicle, in roof or sides? Is there an outside awning or screen house of any type attached?
    Where is the bus located?

    • Marsha Cowan March 7, 2017, 11:52 pm

      MIt has 2″ in the ceiling and about 1 1/2″ in the sides. The windows are the original single glazed. I use a Mr. Buddy propane tent heater at night, but during the day, the sun keeps it warm. To tell the truth, my life is so active that I am rarely here in the evenings long enough to worry about it. I come home around eight most nights, turn on the heater while I check emails and watch an episode of my latest series, then cut off the heat and go to bed. In the mornings, I turn the heater on and get back in bed while it warms up, about 10 minutes, then get up, eat, dress, turn off the heater, and out the door I go. I usually get to bath during the day, so no heater is needed as it is already warm from the sun. In the warm weather, I put the screen in the driver’s window, open the back three windows, and enjoy the breezes. It’s all in how you like to live.

    Excellent tiny house conversion from a short bus…! I would never have thought it…! Fantastic job really…!

    I have watched and admired your work on your darling Baby Boy since I first saw your postings. I would like to consider making him mine, but I don’t know how to text on my old style flip phone. Could you send me an e-mail? All the best wishes for your new adventures.

    • Marsha Cowan March 19, 2017, 7:56 pm

      I have an old flip phone, too. Texting is easy, and there is no time like the present to learn a new trick, right? May save yur life one day. Looking forward to hearing from you 🙂

    Wouldn’t mind having a bus like this, hopefully with a bathroom of course!

  • Anna Marie Sprain March 17, 2017, 8:42 pm

    Marsha, I have followed you and seeing what you did with your little school bus inspired me to do the same. I am still in the build stage but coming along. 🙂 Pray that your next chapter will be a good one. Are you going to settle somewhere permanent?

    • Marsha Cowan March 19, 2017, 7:40 pm

      Hi Anna, congrats on your current project! Hope it goes well and you enjoy living in it as much as I have enjoyed living in Baby Boy. Yes, I want to settle permanently here in my town in AZ, and so am thinking about a tiny house again, something I wouldn’t drive around town. Lol! Since I started teaching full time in November, I have been driving him almost everyday, and its just not as practical as driving a car, although it is kind of cool to be able to go out to my “house” at school and eat lunch, or change into cooler clothes when the day gets warmer, so it does have its perks. Lol!
