The day after they got married, Nik turned to Lauren and said they should renovate a bus, live in it, and travel the country. Only 6 weeks later, they had purchased the biggest bus they could find and got to work! In retrospect, they think 28 feet would have been manageable and slightly easier to find parking spots for.
As is, the bus is about half the size of the 700 square foot apartment they lived in during lockdown. They were well-adjusted to living and working in a small space, so it wasn’t a hard transition. Besides being wonderfully functional, their bus home is stunning, with black tiles, butcher block countertops, and pine ceilings. What’s your favorite feature?

They Included a Recirculating Shower & Giant Dog Nook
The couple used a roof raise in the back of the bus.
They chose to remove the old windows and replace some with RV windows.
