Not only does this skoolie feature a layout I’ve never seen before, it includes radiant heating through the floor — even in the shower! The home runs on solar and a Tesla battery, and it was specifically designed for cold climates so they added an epic two-layer shade design in order to help insulate those drafty bus windows.
Shelby came up with a great idea for a marble-like countertop created with epoxy and spray paint, and David even tinkered around and created his very own recirculating shower system. It keeps the shower hot and water clean without a huge tank. He loved the skoolie build so much, he now works doing more conversions for others.
Check out the amazing video tour of their skoolie conversion done by Tiny Home Tours below. And follow them on Instagram here.

Epic School Bus Conversion with Huge Rooftop Deck
Let’s step inside their school bus conversion and see what it’s like…
Once inside, it’s almost like you’re in a cottage, not a school bus, isn’t it?
It’s the perfect tiny home for them.
The table extends when needed, and contracts to save space.
Happy couple living and building a life their way.
It’s so nice to have solar panels to help keep the batteries topped off, too. This helps you get by longer when boondocking (off-grid).

Note on the battery the Volt modules are a far better value in a 48vdc system. Both more abuse tolerant and half the cost. Mine are so good they didn’t need a BMS closing in on 3 yrs now.
Be very careful working with these as they hold and can release a lot of energy in a second so keep all live connections well insulated while working on them and only the smallest part you are working on uncovered.
I love buses! Yours is great! Beautiful, organized, homey. It’s got it all. Great job!
I loved your bus!
Impressive. And beautiful.
