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?

If you like double-decker bus to motorhome conversions as I do, you’re in the right place!

This list of amazing DIY bus homes was inspired by Ron Collins, a Tiny House Newsletter subscriber, who bought a 1980 Bristol Double Decker Bus that listed for him.

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.

This 1980 Bristol Double Decker Bus For Sale is a guest post by Ron Collins

My home is in Florida where I winter at, and I live in the Netherlands in summer….

In my travels I have purchased a 1980 Bristol – VR Double Decker Bus. Model ECW 24 34 6 Series 2 ENGINE: Gardner 6LXB CONFIGURATION: H43/31F.

The #007 Double Decker Bus is located in the Netherlands and can be “driven to Belgium or Amsterdam” depending on what transport ships are available to ship to certain ports in the USA.

* I have one quote to ship from Netherlands to USA Jacksonville, Florida (Jax Port) at $7,500.00. There are other considerations such as tax etc through customs, that the Buyer is responsible for.

I had great hopes to changing it into a lounge, or “summer home” here….but unfortunately my health causes me to sell this Collectable – Rare London-built bus.

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.
