Liesl and Stu’s Artistic Bus Build with Trapdoor Shower & Cajon Toilet

This post contains affiliate links.

DIY bus conversions certainly aren’t new, but this might win the award for the most gorgeous handcrafted bus we’ve featured here! It’s not just the spacious open concept, the nifty pulley bed, or the epic imported wood stove — it’s the minute details like their tile choice and inlaid cabinet doors and stunning floors.

The couple intentionally chose not to build a single wall in their bus, prioritizing 360 degree views instead. They have dreams to live in their artisitc bus for a couple years and find some lush land to settle on and transform into a market garden and homestead. Love it!

    Absolutely beautiful! You have some very clever ideas in this bus. I like the bed idea, and having the rear door free to open. Nice job!

    This is so amazing. And it truly is a piece of art. I love all of your ideas and I am inspired to get going even though I have never done anything like this before. You both are so smart and creative. Thank you for sharing.
