Their $30K Bus Conversion: 2002 Blue Bird


This post contains affiliate links.

Brittany and Justin converted their skoolie thinking they’d travel the country and find a new state to call home — but after months on the road, they discovered their hearts were in Colorado after all. They went back and found an awesome mountain cabin, which they bought and are renovating in between travels in their bus.

Their bus conversion features a built-in couch, office area, L-shaped kitchen, bathroom, and back bedroom. They used beautiful white tiling and warm wood accents to give their space a cozy and clean vibe. Check it out below!

Their Story:

We bought our 2002 Blue Bird school bus at the beginning of 2021. It took us 11 months and about $30K to turn it into our dream tiny home on wheels. We lived in it and traveled the country for the past 8 months until we unexpectedly found our dream (not so tiny) home in the mountains of Colorado.

We are taking The G-Wagon to a music festival in Florida in March, then we are thinking about selling it and downsizing to something smaller since we won’t be traveling full-time. Meeting different people from the tiny house community has been one of the best parts of this whole experience for us!

We are currently using the skills we learned building the bus to fix up our new house and sharing our journey on social media (same page as the bus @thegwagonbus) 😊. Our dream is to buy some property and build a bunch of tiny A-frame homes to rent out one day.
