The Bus

This is our new home the change from school bus to skoolie bus....We loved being able to create or own living space. We have much more to add, but there is plenty of time. We tried to recycle as much as we could with build the bus. We have recycled oak flooring, many pieces of furniture from Habitat, reused appliances from our old house or from old parted out RV's, the wall paneling was end scraps from a local man and other things that we are able to recycle we do. Enjoy the pictures, we worked hard on what is done and we love what we got out of it.

I love your bus! We have a 1968 30 ft. Airstream that we are refurbishing. We also have dreams of going on the road. I really get inspired from reading your blog. What type of mattress did you use for your kid's bunks? Hubby built similar bunks in ours. We have three children,twin girls-12, son-10, who we homeschool.
