Welder’s Short School Bus Tiny House Build

This post contains affiliate links.

When he was younger, Steve really wanted a hammock in his bedroom. Despite promising his parents he would hang it in the studs, they firmly said no to the idea. So you’ll love the look of pure joy on his face as Steve shows off the hammock he hung in his short bus conversion!

A former professional welder, Steve finally got to pursue his dream of being a full-time artist after working full-time and building his bus in his free time for more than two years. He has a dedicated studio area in the back of the bus, complete with a huge drawer to house all his records. The front of the bus has his kitchen and bathroom, and the bench seats convert into his bed. What do you think of his rig?
