Bus Home

Here is an interesting conversion project using an old school bus.
There are a few items I saw in here which could be adaptable to our trailer projects.

I thought it was very nicely done. I noticed they didn't say anything about their grey water, or did I miss that? Just a hose? or a tank?

I wondered about that too.

We used a schoolbus as a clubhouse down on our riverfront property back in the 70s. Ours didn't run anymore, but we got it for a song and a tow bill. Worked well for us for about ten years.
The more stuff I take along, the more time I spend taking care of my stuff!

I also dreamed of converting a school bus. Even bought the bus. Too hard to park on the street (needed 6 consecutive spots to pull in) and impossible to get in the drive way.

I'm always curious about these young peope who quit their jobs to do this kind of thing. Do they ever regret having to go back to work later and work til they are 80 to qualify for retirement?

I liked the custom shower - looked like the base was a galvanized was tub.
