Man Transforms $2,200 School Bus Into A Stunning Tiny Home

Have you ever dreamed of living in a tiny home but thought it would cost too much? So did this man in Austin, Texas until he found a school bus at auction for just $2,200. A bus provides the perfect ready made shell for a tiny home. It already has walls, floors and a roof. You just have to gut it and pick your finishes as you wish.

The completed project is absolutely stunning. There are so many amazing details to this home. It also looks spacious, as the roof was raised. There is even a full entertainment center. Not bad for someone with no building experience! This home is also solar powered, which means not only is it cozy, but it’s completely self sufficient!

The builder of this tiny home had no previous experience, but he was able to put together a great plan

The first step was to strip the bus of all the seats, to make room for the home.

After this was completed, he removed the metal ceiling as well as all the windows.

This was done to make a more open design.

During the process, he even found an old ‘Kick Me’ sticky note!

Then came building the steel walls to insulate his future home.

Once that was done, he started adding the walls on the inside.

At one point, he realized that the ceiling needed to be raised to accommodate his height.

Then came the futon to start making this bus feel like home.

When he started making the kitchen, he said it only costed him $300, the most expensive part being the faucet.

The builder also mentions that the kitchen here was bigger than the one in his studio apartment!

After some amazing wood walls and a large cleanup job, the house was finally starting to come together.

Alongside the kitchen is a lovely home office.
