An architecture student in Minnesota decided to test out his skills on a school bus, turning a dilapidated old vehicle into a mobile home that sleeps six.
Hank Butitta picked up the bus on Craigslist for $3,000, and transformed the interior 225 square feet into a modern, comfortable home with cushy seating, storage, and a small kitchen and bathroom. Buttita considers the project to be part of the Tiny Houses movement, which espouses a pared-down, simplified living situation. By building the home on wheels, Buttita and other Tiny House dwellers can circumvent many of the requirements that come with building an on-the-grid home.
In daytime mode, the bus has couches, tables and desks, as well as kitchen counterspace. When it is transformed into its nighttime state, there is enough room for six adults to sleep on cushioned surfaces.
