Hank Bought A Bus… And It’s Awesome

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.

Hank’s website is hankboughtabus.com and the photos were shot by Justin Evidon of justinevidon.com

  1. Really cool, especially the multipurpose furniture!

  2. Interesting to see what can be done with a bus. I don’t think I’d want this particular configuration, but I’m intrigued with the idea of simply driving my home wherever I want; certainly easier than hauling a tiny home behind you, especially if you don’t have experience doing so.

  3. Several years ago I had a Ford short bus that I set up for comfy living for one. It was great when parked but I swear the thing hated me and kept going mechanical at the most inopportune moments. I sold it to a guy that drove it from the Yukon to Mexico and back and never had any problems, not even a flat tire.

    I like the look of this one but that whole “line things up on opposite sides with a narrow walkway” thing would drive me nuts for serious living space. The flexibility of the bed arrangement is genius and the seating/dining area too. Sure is a lot of seating and sleeping. Would make a great touring bus for a group of people, ideal festival transport.
