Now, this is a fun family project! Roberto and Silvia, along with their daughters Martina and Mayla, transformed a beat-up double-decker London bus (for sale in Italy) into their gorgeous summer home complete with a large porch for eating and relaxing.

The bus is just over 26 feet long and is about 15.5 feet tall. The bottom floor houses their kitchen and living room, while upstairs there’s a full bathroom and two bedrooms: One with bunks for the girls, and another with a queen bed for the couple. All-in-all they spent about $20,000 USD ($18,000 EUR) on the renovation. It’s such a great example of reusing, and creates a super unique home!

This is a whimsical little church cottage in Campiglia, Cinqueterre, Italy. The 301 sq. ft. structure was originally built in 1808 as a village chapel and was renovated two hundred years later in 2008.

It’s located in a small village setting in northwest Italy with a terrace deck in the back about 10 meters away from the home itself. Since the cottage is 400 meters above sea level, you can enjoy majestic sea views from here. And yes, it is available to book on Airbnb.
