    Violet is a strong and elegant color, it can be combined with different colors like red purple, orange, turquoise, emerald green, etc…With all shades, purple creates Art in the all anvironments.

    Great idea and well done. I am always admiring people doing something different although there are downsides, too.

    Would have been nice to see the bathroom, and if you dont need those bunks, would be great closet space.

    There’s nothing tiny about any of these “tiny” buses . These are big long buses. I was expecting to see something more like van type size buses. They are all very beautifully well done.

    This is great ! What a fantastic way of getting use out of a retired bus , rather that sending them to the scrap heap. Bus and some imagination makes for a great tiny Home!

    I have to agree there is nothing new there really at all, it’s stunningly well done don’t get me wrong, and the idea of using a bus as the basis for a build, is really just a few degrees right of using a 40ft storage container as that’s what this build reminded me of, given that i live in Scotland and know their planning laws quite well i’d opt for the reason an ex council bus was used was very simple, it wouldn’t be classed as a permanent building thus getting around local and national planning laws, plus by supplying a kitchen and cooking facilities they will have also circumvented the landlord/lady provision as they only rent out the “building” Ok if you have the land, money to convert and so on and so forth.
    From what i can see the quality is good, the overall design is very container cabin esk thus nothing new or too get excited over which is a shame as there was a chance to break the mould here, but rather than do so, they went for the very safe option, maybe in their next fit out as it’s also not technically a conversion nor even a tiny house either come to think of it, however where space is tight, a hijab can’t get to the site to offload a mobile home or container it’s an ideal solution as it could drive in or be towed onto site so a win win on that score if that was the reasons behind the use of such a base
