This is the story of Parker’s short school bus conversion with a Murphy bed. It’s a very well thought out custom motor home called Bird the Bus!
I commonly talk to people who build Sprinter Camper Van conversions that have $50k-$80k invested in their rigs. I always try to convince people to consider the mini school bus conversion over a van. This video is a good example of why I think this. Enjoy!

Short School Bus Conversion w/ a Murphy Bed!
Everything in this short school bus tiny house is very well thought out. For example, his couch cushions double as insulation for some of the windows on the bus (including the windshield) while in sleep mode. Pretty smart, right?
When you’re living in tiny spaces, creative design strategies like this are a must. And that’s where videos and articles like this come in. Enjoy! 🙂
Here’s the school bus in sleep mode

Very nice, surprisingly clean. LOVE THE MAP!!!!. Seriously, wouldn’t have thought about something like this as a feature, it really works.
This is the BEST layout/design for a short bus I’ve seen yet!!! I’d have never guessed it was only at 18 feet long, too! Great job, Parker
I thought it was pretty awesome too! Glad you enjoyed it as well 🙂
Sweet home — happy travels!
I love this!
Is your driver seat stock or did you get a new one?
Very cute but where is the bathroom?
Really nice conversion. You thought of everything!
I had the same problem with my kitchen faucet slopping water outside the sink – I got a directional aerator that screws into the end of the faucet. Works like a charm and only cost a few bucks!
What a great job! I don’t care for most bus conversions, but that one is great. You did a fantastic job laying that our and providing enough storage. I would add solar to that , but not much else. Again, great job.
Wonderful home. Looks like you thought of everything. Great job!
Love it. Thats what I’m looking for.
