203 sq. ft. Off-Grid New Hampshire Skoolie Cabin (For Sale)


This is a 203 sq. ft. Off-Grid New Hampshire Skoolie Cabin that’s for sale right now.

I’ve never seen a school bus conversion with such a fun rustic/cabin interior, but I love it! The exterior hunter green paint really adds to the “New Hampshire” feel. The couple that built it is looking to downsize, so now you can enjoy their hard work! And like with most skoolies, this one has a ground floor bedroom, so no stairs and no lofts.

Get the contact information for the seller and more details below the pictures. Enjoy!

From Stephanie:

Price: $24,900
1997 Thomas built International school bus tiny home for sale. Converted in 2016 it features a queen sized bed with storage underneath, small couch with full storage, antique drop desk, 6 ft kitchen counter top and floor to ceiling shelving in bathroom and closet. The bedroom area has a memory foam mattress, book shelf and two built in night stands with 3 bin cubbies. The closet has dual hanging rods and full shelving. The closet could be converted easily into 6′ bunks.

The interior is all tongue and groove cedar with stain resistant, heavy duty faux wood flooring. This tiny home is 100% self contained and off grid. There are 600 watt Renogy solar panels mounted on the roof complete with Renogy inverter, batteries and charge controller enclosed in the “utility room” located in the rear of the bus. There are LED rope lights throughout and 7 outlets. The bathroom has a composting toilet with diverter. The bathroom does not have a shower but the shelving area could hold a 3’x3′ shower pan easily. There is also a hand pump sink located in the kitchen area. The heat source is a cast iron wood stove on a brick hearth.

All windows and doors have custom made insulated curtains that can be velcroed in place for extra temperature protection. The cab space is separate from the living area accessible by the bi fold door and has two leather captains chairs. The wooden steps are removable and the living area is accessed by the handicapped swinging door on the side. All remaining windows work great and have bug screens. The walls, ceiling and floor are fully insulated.

The bus does run and drive, it is an automatic transmission diesel engine with air brakes. It was safety inspected late 2016. The bus has been fully painted on the exterior, no rust! We have lived in this off grid tiny home through a rough New England Winter and have enjoyed every moment! We are asking $24,900 or best offer. We would love to stay in our cabin on wheels but we are currently looking to downsize. Please email for more information and pictures. Thanks!

      It’s fantastic!

  • Sylvester Riel April 20, 2017, 4:32 pm

    Any more details on the layout or build of the bus? They talked about the front cab. What front cab? I don’t see it.

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie C. McKee April 24, 2017, 4:51 am

      Hi Sylvester, they just didn’t take a picture of it, but it’s there 🙂 Couldn’t drive without it! For more details (and pictures) you can contact the seller: [email protected]

    It looks very nice plus comfy but I would have to build a small kitchen and bath shed for it.

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie C. McKee April 24, 2017, 4:51 am

      Good idea!

  • iris cutforth April 20, 2017, 9:21 pm

    If it sits for a long time, it mite be wise to pump it up to place blocks underneath in a few places? Would this help save the tires? I thought so. Maybe someone else will know the answer. I liked the fire wall around, above and below the fireplace. Well done.

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie C. McKee April 21, 2017, 3:42 am

      Hi Iris — yes I’ve seen folks use blocks before. That would be a great idea 🙂

  • lynn colvard April 20, 2017, 10:48 pm

    Nice bus, but unfortunately doesn’t have amenities that would give it resale near the asking price. Most folks would prefer kitchen + shower (grey tank) + sleep more than 2 + space taken up by wood stove.
