He Even Moved into a Tent to Finish the School Bus Conversion!
When I bought my bus I was living in a studio apartment in North Austin for around $1200 a month including rent and bills. I moved into a tent in order to save money while working on the bus, commuting 40 minutes to work every day, just to afford more steel and more wood. I had never built anything before, and I couldn’t sleep for months because my brain was constantly going a mile a minute about how to build this and what I was going to do to build that. It was the hardest thing I’ve ever done. While I was building the bus I was cheated on, my dog died, I lost my job, my grandfather died, and Central Texas saw it’s wettest year in ages, putting me through 2 floods and multiple hail storms. In the end the whole thing cost me around $15,000 and six months of work. I know it’s a cliche at this point, but seriously: If I can do it, you can too. Follow me on Instagram! @Intalleyvision
