I came across this yesterday and was completely engulfed with how cool of a concept this was. After reading the title “My First DIY: School Bus Conversion”, that was easily enough to click-bait me into what this guy could have possibly created.
To my surprise, Michael went full-on carpenter mode and completely gutted an entire school bus to make it a mobile home for him to travel in. What did the finished product look like? Let’s just say, it looks boss as hell.
Michael bought the school bus after he was tired of paying $1200 a month on rent in Austin, Texas (all utilities included in that price). He said he ended up moving into a tent to help save money while working on the bus and would commute to work 40 minutes a day, every day so that he could afford more steal and wood.
The more impressive aspect is that he mentions he had never built anything prior to this. The grand total for everything ended up being $15k. You can check out the full breakdown of how he made the School bus mobile home with all of the pics here.
