Also, it’s run completely off grid using solar power! How awesome is that?

So nice to have a place to sit, think, plan, read, and eat!

The bedroom… Looks like lots of storage space under the bed. You can also see their washer/dryer.

It’s a lot of work to get a school bus to look like this, as well as function like an RV/house.

    Very well done! One of the best conversions I have seen! I can really appreciate the amount of work that went into it after seeing the before and after pictures! I love the tree mural on the side of the converted bus! That really adds to it , Out of curiosity, what is the headroom in the bus?

    Indeed, very nice conversion but I don’t understand why so many people love the side by side dining arrangement instead of a fold down table with facing each other.

      Generally, because it’s not just a dining space… They can use it as work table, office space, laundry sorting table, etc. While it avoids the hassle of needing to transform the space all the time just to use it, it provides more total table space but doesn’t cut into the walkway, and some people just like enjoying the view while eating…

      Besides, they can just put a fold out table between the sofa benches, which do face each other…

    Amazing conversion. Just curious, what is the height from floor to ceiling? I’m 6’2.

    Wow, this is the very best conversion of a bus that I have ever seen, they made it a real home! I love their home and the sense of adventure they have together, they just seem so darn blissfully happy and in love. Tell Brooke that I love her wedding dress, that is so romantic and pretty, would love to know where she got it as I want one. I wish them well and much love and joy in their lives together…they both made my heart sing today. Thank you!
