This is the story of Charlie Kern. He’s just a guy who had a problem. He needed a place to live!
So Charlie decided that he would convert a school bus into his own tiny home! Fast forward to today, and he’s turning school buses (and other things) into homes and/or other structures out of Denver, Colorado. Kern has even been featured on TV!
His company is called Art Builders Guild because they also build custom furniture for people and businesses. The bus conversion part of the company goes by Look At That Bus. Pretty cool, right?

Charlie Kern’s Beautiful School Bus Conversion
In the fall of 2014, I decided to build the bus I had always dreamed of so I bought a 1982 Bluebird International for $2000 and began the most comprehensive conversion I had ever undertaken. I wanted to raise the roof, insulate it thoroughly, take it completely off-grid, and, most importantly, make it feel like a bus I could call home for a long time to come. I saved my money, busted my ass, made many mistakes, but by the spring of 2015 I had built what was, unquestionably, a home on wheel.4
