This is the story of Jessie Lipskin, a young lady from Manhattan who decided to buy an old 1966 GMC Greyhound bus on eBay for $7,000 to turn into her very own tiny home on wheels.
So Jessie spent the next three years and $70k professionally remodeling it, plus an additional $55,000 on various other expenses to repair and maintain it to make it what it is today. The bus is 40ft long and 10ft wide so it offers about 400 square feet.
By the way, she’s now selling the bus for an asking price of $149,000 because she has plans to travel internationally so if you’re interested in taking it off her hands it’s available and she’s considering all offers.

1966 GMC Greyhound Commuter Bus to Tiny Home Description
This stunning and contemporary RV/Tiny Home was constructed in a 1966 GMC Commuter Greyhound. The Greyhound’s classic body style and great condition made the perfect fit for a beautiful Tiny Home conversion. All mechanics have been restored, and the bus is currently in running condition. The Tiny Home’s interior has been completely renovated and designed by an architect and the fine finishes have been meticulously constructed by a skilled carpenter. With more than $125,000 invested in restoring this bus (see chart in photos), this home is now an innovative, eco-friendly, beautifully-designed piece of art. The bus offers two sleeping areas and one full-sized bath, comfortably sleeping 4 people.
Upon entering this radiant home, one is immediately drawn to the brand-new hardwood flooring and walls of windows which flood the space in natural light throughout the day. The first of two cozy sleeping spaces is located towards the back of the bus and is large enough to fit a full-sized mattress. There are a variety of storage options located throughout the home, along with three large closets. The home is illuminated by LED lighting with dimmers throughout, allowing for a tranquil ambiance.
The modern and spacious kitchen is conveniently situated in the center of the bus, boasting a large sink, additional storage options, drawers, wooden counter tops, an oven and stove top. This area also houses an energy-efficient washing machine/drying spinner and instant hot water heater and propane tank. A full bathroom with a standing shower is located adjacent to the kitchen space, along with a separate closet. Two central air units are in the home, both of which have individual thermostats. A full size pull-out bed is located towards the front of the bus, offering an additional sleeping area.
