Young Man Builds Epic School Bus Tiny House for Only $4,500

Aaron converted this vintage baby blue school bus into a debt free tiny home for less than $4,500, and the interior design is absolutely stunning.He traded an older vehicle for the bus, and used mostly reclaimed wood to build DIY storage spaces and a bed frame; and the countertop is made from a goat teeter totter.

Most of the decor has been thrifted and specifically chosen to match the era of the bus, which is a 1959 Ford B600 Warden Master. Pretty intense name for a school bus isn’t it?via(Exploring Alternatives)

Since filming the video, Aaron has insulated the bus conversion for winter, and added a solar power system. The skoolie’s name is Dorf because a previous owner switched the “F” and the “D” in Ford on the front grill, and Aaron’s dog is an Australian Cattle rescue pup named Chevy.


Aaron built this school bus conversion because he wanted to try something new, exciting, and off the beaten path, and so far he’s been having a great time exploring British Columbia and meeting new people in the bus. He says he has to build 30 extra minutes into his schedule every time he takes the bus somewhere to account for all the time he spends chatting with people.
