Caleb hated paying for rent, so he started saving up for a school bus conversion. He found his rig for $3K on Facebook Marketplace, and used the remaining $7k on renovations. You would never believe he spent so little! This has to be one of the most gorgeous skoolies I’ve seen, and it strays from the norm with it’s innovative layout.
He (@roamerbus) is currently a architecture Master’s student, and he put his training into action when creating his floor plan — you walk right into the kitchen (complete with semi-truck-bed countertops), and then move back through an eating area with a hidden keyboard and a huge closet, and finally to the open living and bedroom area.
In the very back, Caleb tucked his toilet and shower (which he is still waiting on funds to complete). I can’t say enough good things about his design, so check out the video tour with Tiny Home Tours below!

Gorgeous Budget Bus Conversion with Industrial Design
Love the way he did the flooring down there.
Because Caleb is taller, he added this cut out in the roof for more space.
He has the keyboard under his table and then there’s the huge closet.
The living room and bedroom flow seamlessly together.
That copper piping is actually PVC!
