Empty Nesters Choose Bus Life Pre-Retirement


This post contains affiliate links.

Tom and Jodie aren’t quite retirement age, but with an empty nest they were ready for a new chapter and didn’t want to wait another 20 or so years of work to get there! So they sold their home, purged a lifetime of belongings, and built out a Bluebird bus.

Their 35-foot bus got a professionally-done 20-inch roof-raise, but they did the rest of the work themselves. Tom chose to put all the plumbing inside the bus, so they don’t have to worry about freezing temperatures. Let us know what you think in the comments!
