THREE Gorgeous Tiny House School Bus Conversions!


     Honestly, while I haven't stepped into a ton of school bus conversions (aka "Skoolies"), and have only featured a handful on this channel, this particular one still stands as one of the nicer ones I've seen. Having recently just returned from New Jersey and the Tiny House Festival that took place in Augusta (where I was a guest speaker) I figured I should share this one ASAP.
     From its simple yet attractive interior, to the full stove and range, full sized refrigerator, and given the fact that its all run on a solar/photovoltaic system(!), there is a lot of inspiration to be gleaned from this skoolie. Owner Michael Fuehrer and his father, the duo responsible for the rehab, did a fantastic job, as you'll see...

     School bus conversions just might be a great option when seeking a tiny and mobile life- the watertight shell of a secondhand bus is your starting point, giving you the advantage of a dry work space, security, and even lockable storage as you build.

     Not that long ago, I also had the chance to tour two other skoolies/converted school buses- both of them in the Atlanta, Georgia area.... check out these tours as well.....

And.... one of the first ones I ever set foot in (which will also be featured in my upcoming follow-up to the book "Microshelters"...
