This is the story of Jessie Lipskin, a young lady from Manhattan who decided to buy an old 1966 GMC Greyhound bus on eBay for $7,000 to turn into her very own tiny home on wheels.
So Jessie spent the next three years and $70k professionally remodeling it, plus an additional $55,000 on various other expenses to repair and maintain it to make it what it is today. The bus is 40ft long and 10ft wide so it offers about 400 square feet.
By the way, she’s now selling the bus for an asking price of $149,000 because she has plans to travel internationally so if you’re interested in taking it off her hands it’s available and she’s considering all offers.
They chose a bus conversion over a traditional tiny house because it would cost less (they spent $17,600 on the build, see the breakdown here) and be easier to transport to accommodate their travels. The coolest part? You can follow the whole conversion on their blog, and if you have questions about this skoolie conversion, they provided a handy list of FAQs which they answered for you.

Every now and then I get a hankering to build something or change something, so thought I would send some pictures of changes I have made in Baby Boy, my tiny bus, in the past few months.
I have so loved living in this bus! It is so convenient, and no, it has no bathroom (although I have a porcelain potty for midnight runs), I have always stayed in places where a bathroom is available, and at my RV court in Arizona, I have a port-a-jon and an outdoor shower with propane powered on-demand portable hot water heater.
