School Bus House

School Bus House

Architecture student Hank Butitta converted old school bus into a 225 square foot mobile home with small kitchen, living room, and bedroom.

School bus was purchased for only $3000 and then completely renovated for another $6000. The project was completed in 15 weeks.

Tiny house on wheels is equipped with custom furniture, hidden storage compartments, LED lights, and wood flooring (reclaimed from old gym).

    Woo! glad to see a old bus recycled into something epic and prob worth more money then a crappy camper van would be. Would be great for student’s who want a gap year travel :D

    I think I’d pass. Clever idea but not my taste as things go.

    This is the original DIY RV.

    I see expenses as fuel, traffic violations, bus repairs, parking fee, toll fee, etc.

    It’s a pretty gorgeous renovation- I love the amount of wood on show. Would be great for researchers out in the field or for a close couple x

    My dad and brothers turned an old school bus into a house which our family of nine proceeded to take on a five month trip. Hectic, and lots of fun.

    Im going on an adventure by recycling a bus into a place. I love the bed design in the back of the bus. I wanted to do something like that for my kids in my bus i was wondering if you have plains for the design? or if you just did it your self. yah ether way. Really really nice job I like the bus a lot

    As a small child in the 1970’s, we traveled from NY to Maine in a converted school bus. What an adventure! I only wish we had your talent and insight back then. Congratulations on your success and I truly believe the TH movement is going to help so many people have a decent shot at a home.
