Artist and Web Designer Hit the Road at 18 in a Short Bus Conversion

This post contains affiliate links.

Emma and Justin fell in love at 15, and as high school graduation loomed, were trying to decide what to do next. College? Stay home with their parents? Neither option sounded fun, but they saw van/bus conversions all over YouTube and thought that was their best course of action.

While they spent $6,000 more than they thought they would, and it took months longer, the end results of their bus conversion are truly stunning. There’s a wet bath, a kitchen with plenty of counter space, and even room for a mini art studio for Emma’s creations. Plus, this couple is adorable! Enjoy their tour below.
