Artists Cora and Jose didn’t just create an epic skoolie conversion for their own use, they made it with a mission in mind! Travel 30,000 miles across the Americas sharing art wherever they go! They’ve taught classes, painted murals, and shared their artistic abilities while on the road.

They even built their bus with extra guest beds in case an artist wants to travel with them for a month or so at a time and join in the art-sharing. They call the project, “Art We There Yet?”

This bus has an incredible back bedroom with a Murphy Bed, that doubles as an incredible studio as well. Just wait until you see it all in the interview with Tiny Home Tours. Follow the couple on Instagram.

This is the story of how Alyce, Paul and their dog Banjo bought an old bus and converted into an awesome DIY motorhome to live simply and adventurously.

Paul and Alyce began tearing everything out of the bus to give it back life, light, character, and more storage!

Once they ripped everything out they discovered it had lots of rust. So they simply cut out the rusty metal and began to re-weld new steel to the frame. Fortunately, they have a great friend named Luke who is a welder that taught them how to do this. In one of the before and after photos below you’ll see the difference this made. Then it was time to re-panel the bus to complete the job of making it road worthy again.

Soon it was time to work on the inside. They went with a kitchen from IKEA because it was affordable, new, and easy to build. According to their original article, they triple enforced everything so it wouldn’t break or get damaged. And so far, so good! Please enjoy, learn more, and re-share below. Thank you!
