I have been spending time looking at bus conversions and came across this video by Jake as he talks about how he built his bus and also give a tour of the bus. His bus is a Victorian style to it and he use a lot of reclaimed materials to build most of the furniture and storage. He also shows some of downsides to campers, RV’s and 5th wheels by showing a cut away of a travel trailer he has, he then compares this to the bus. He gets into some of the details of the plumbing and water systems that I haven’t seen anywhere else, so it was good to see a good application of these systems.
Every time someone says they want to live in a converted bus I cringe. Of the several people I have known to actually build and live in a converted bus, they all faced issues of poor insulation, cold nights, and awkward spaces. It certainly works for some and that’s fine, but I know it could never work for me…. until now. I saw Hank’s bus and I instantly was proved wrong about any preconceived notions of bus conversions.
Elegant, minimalist, yet functional and wide open bright spaces. I’ll be quite and let the photos do the rest of the talking.
