An Old Yellow School Bus Was Transformed Into A Charming Little Home. Take A Look Inside!

You know, when I first heard that people tried to convert school buses into homes, I thought they were crazy. How can you possibly live in such a tight space? But then I thought about it some more… I mean, there are a lot of very cool and very liveable RVs that are comparably sized. And I’ve also seen some impossibly┬átiny apartments in New York. So transforming a school bus into a cozy home can most definitely work! And here’s proof…

In 2011, Mira and Jeremy Thompson bought a 1989 school bus with the intention of turning it into their dream home. They had no plans on keeping this bus mobile so they were able to make very efficient use of all available space. In keeping with the DIY spirit of recycling, the couple outfitted their home with a lot of reclaimed materials and items from antique and thrift stores. Check out the photos below and see the results for yourself!

From the outside, it looks quite tiny.

But let’s take a tour inside!

Wow! The interior is so very charming!

And it’s much larger than you might have expected, thanks to some smart design choices!

Most of the finishes and decor were salvaged or purchased from thrift stores.

Check out that kitchen, complete with sink, fridge, and stove!


The living room, a loft, and the bedroom!

Here’s the small but complete washroom.

Here’s the view from the loft… love that ceiling paneling!

The wheel wells took up a lot of space but the Thompsons cleverly designed around them. In this case, they built a love seat on top of one!

And look at this amazing wood-burning stove!
