Ever imagined that the big yellow school bus you rode on everyday as child could transform into a cozy little home? Well now your imagination is a reality. Jeremy and Mira Thompson decided to live on the road, and opted for a nomadic, minimalistic lifestyle. They transformed a 37ft long school bus into a creative tiny home. Wondering how did they manage that? Read on guys, and get ready to be totally awestruck.
- Four years of dedicated hard work on this 1989 school bus, and after all the modification, the Thompson’s officially call it their ‘Home’.
- “We fell in love with the freedom, but eventually found ourselves wanting a home base near our families,” they told the magazine, Good Housekeeping. The home is made out of environment friendly materials.
- Even if the kitchen looks small, it has space for a stove, fridge and a lot of room for some yummy cooking to be done.
- Craftsmanship of the 1900s was kept in mind while designing the interiors of this beautiful house.
- The wheel wells of the bus have also been incorporated into the house; while one is used as love seat the other is used as a cast iron stove for heating.
- The “canopied” bed brings out a gypsy feel. The space above serves as a lovely sitting area for reading and relaxing.
- The space above the bed is where Jeremy plays his guitar, and the wooden ceiling acts as a natural amplifier.
- The indoor plants and lighting complement the curved ceiling of the house thus lending it a warm and cozy ambience.
- The stove from Amana, and the 1959 fridge both using propane found a perfect place in the house.
