She Built a School Bus Tiny House on a Budget
School bus conversions seem like the coziest, homiest, homes on wheels, don’t they?
There is so much space for customizations, like this unique little table with built-in storage in the entry of the bus.
Her skoolie conversion features a kitchen, dining nook, two sleeping areas, a bathroom, and a craft desk.
This is sleeping area number one with overhead storage. This space is for her son.
This is where she sleeps.
And this is the craft space that uses recycled seating from a movie theater.
The bathroom with toilet.
With a school bus, you get some extra storage outside of the bus, too.
Would you ever consider making a home out of an old school bus, kind of like this?
You can find her on Instagram @katmondieu if you’d like to follow along her journey. Be sure to watch the FLORB video tour of her bus and the story behind it!
