It’s awesome to see old vehicles getting a new lease on life! This 1950s British double-decker bus retired from service, came over to the U.S., was transformed into a diner, and is now an Airbnb in Oregon. How awesome!
The entire second floor of the bus is a spacious, yet cozy, bedroom with a queen bed. Downstairs, there’s a bathroom near the cab, and then a kitchen and living space. What do you think?
Whit is a cool guy who left his normal job to start renovating tiny spaces and hosting on Airbnb. His latest project has been giving yet another life to a 1950s Manchester, UK bus. After the bus came to the US, it served as a tour bus, and then passed hands until it eventually became a diner. But once Whit got it, he transformed it into a unique Airbnb!
You walk into the kitchen and living space and there’s an added bathroom in the front of the bus near the almost-entirely-original cab. A spiral staircase takes you to the spacious upper bedroom with beautiful woodwork ceilings. What’s your favorite part of this renovation?
In fact, this post is meant to serve as inspiration as to what you can do with a double-decker bus if you’re able to find one and willing to take on the task of converting it into a tiny (err.. I should say ‘small’) home, right? Either way, please enjoy and re-share below! Thank you.
Daniel Bond, a self-employed electrician, found it impossible to get approved for a mortgage. So he and his partner decided they would turn a double decker bus into their very own mortgage-free two bedroom home.
Inside it has everything a normal house has. A kitchen, lounge, bar, bathroom, and two bedrooms! And best of all, it’s debt-free. No mortgage? No problem.
Better yet, it’s on wheels, too. So if they ever have a major life change, they can just drive wherever they want or need to go.
