Couple Convert Retired Fire Bus Into Their Tiny Home

This is the story of Ethan and Cassidy and how they live in a retired fire bus that they converted and built into a tiny home themselves. They’re @twopupsandus on Instagram. And actually, their bus is currently for sale right now. More info below.

The conversion took them only 4 months and they’ve been living in it with their two dogs. What do you think of their bus conversion and lifestyle? Take a look for yourself and let’s talk about it in the comments below.

Couple Turn Retired Fire Bus Into Their One-of-a-kind, DIY Tiny Home

They converted the bus in a matter of four months (and a lot of work). See below.

They built out a full kitchen…

The bedroom has built-in lighting in the ceiling.

The interior has a custom L-couch and a bar.

The bathroom is accessible via sliding barn door.

Their two pups. 🙂

Nice to have a dual-sport motorcycle to take with you on the road.

    Looks like a non-insulated nightmare 🙁

      They mentioned doing spray foam insulation during the video tour… But it is a vehicle…

      I would say without xray vision it would be difficult to tell but they did say it was spray foamed. Having used spray before I assure you it is solid, holds heat and cool air quite well and dies not need to be 4 inches thick which would be illogical. A newer camper sometimes has the same thing and they are quite easy to heat and cool. Nightmare? For some perhaps. I would call it my small luxury.

    $50k seems a bit steep for this conversion. Especially since they mention a couple of flaws and things they’d do different in their video!

      Could be that the mileage is low – the type of engine etc, could play into price but its buying a house not just a vehicle.
