The double decker bus has been completely renovated.

Yet much of the original character still remains.

Not to mention, it’s completely one-of-a-kind.

This could make for quite the awesome Airbnb, for anyone out there who is looking for a super-unique tiny home experience to offer their guests.

The upstairs coffee and reading nook with a view. I love this spot!

I once got to go inside of a double decker bus coffee shop in Asheville that this reminds me of. 🙂

    I think this would make a nice home but the colors are not cohisive. The green and blue really don’t go well together. Without an engine it would be difficult to move to a location, so as far as campers go, it is useless. As a tiny home that you move to a property and leave it it seems fine although they didn’t show any storage or bedrooms.

      My friends and I NEED this bus for when we go to college. We graduate from high school in 2026. Then we’ll make a road trip to go see it. Please hold it until then. Thanks!

    Its honestly my dream to have a double decker home bus… my theme however will be a mash us of traditional Japanese + gypsy + hippie. I like purple and blue and I’m naming the bus Lorelei.
