Family’s $15K Bus Conversion

This post contains affiliate links.

The Geasey Family has lived in their budget bus conversion for five years after purchasing the bus six years ago for $7,000. Incredibly, they only put about $8,000 into making the bus home, bringing the total for their conversion up to just $15,000!

That thriftiness crafted a fantastic home on wheels, with a comfortable living room, spacious kitchen with tons of counter space, and cozy bedrooms for everyone in the family. While they built before recent inflation took over, their affordable conversion is still an inspiration!

  • They purchased this bus 6 years ago, and it took them over a year to complete the build.
  • For five years they’ve been living nomadically, teaching and creating (plus some Airbnb income) to make thing happen.
  • The kids each have treehouse-style bunk beds near the back of the home.
  • They kept the bathroom small so they could have a larger kitchen where three of them can work at a time!
  • Incredibly, they only spent around $15K on both the bus and the conversion, keeping them debt-free.
