She was able to buy and convert the school bus for about $13,000! That sure beats renting an apartment, doesn’t it?

Have you ever considered a school bus conversion like this?

This is the story of a group of Westminster College students who built a tiny house on wheels as a dorm room and as an on-campus learning and living experience.

It’s great because some students get to try out tiny living while the college also uses the structure for academic purposes. Pretty cool, right?

Enjoy and learn more below and let’s hope we can inspire more schools to do the same! Thanks!
