These days, tiny houses may be created out of almost anything. Campers, vans, and even cube trucks have been used to build them. Buses are also frequently utilized to build miniature dwellings and to live on the go. That’s exactly what Jessie Lipskin done with a 1966 Greyhound Commuter Bus. She took a classic bus body and turned it into a charming tiny mobile home. The Greyhound bus was also kept in fine working order, which was quite beneficial. As a result, the mechanicals were rather simple to fix, and it now runs like a dream. Jessie spent almost $125,000 on the interior of her mobile bus home, which she totally renovated with the help of an architect. She also engaged expert carpenters and cabinetmakers to work on the bus’s interior carpentry and cabinets. She also made it environmentally friendly and capable of sleeping up to four people. A full bathroom is also available on board, which is ideal in any tiny space. The adorable antique bus’s exterior is entirely white, which contrasts nicely with the tinted windows and black embellishments. The house’s main door, which is still the original bus door, is reached through a pull-down stairway.
Fresh white paint and linens make the house feel light and airy on the inside. The entrance also serves as the driver’s seat, providing a comfortable driving environment. Because it’s a manual shift, Jessie couldn’t drive it herself, but she managed to get it around. From the driver’s seat, a door seals off the remainder of the home. All of the floors are brand new hardwood, and the walls are painted white, as are the walls and the ceiling, which are tongue and groove. The white paint and all of the original windows let in a lot of light, making the house feel more open and spacious. The bathroom, which contains a sink, composting toilet, and shower stall, is also on the way inside the house from the driver’s seat. The kitchen is located off the bathroom and into the living area, and it features beautiful oak counters and cabinetry. There’s also a sink, as well as an RV oven and stove that fit neatly on one countertop, as well as a tiny fridge put under the counter. She also has a Panda spin washer, which is fantastic for washing little loads of clothing while also being incredibly energy efficient.
Because the living room is a nice space that is connected to the kitchen, she utilizes one of the kitchen countertops as a workspace. In the living area, there are also some fantastic built-in seats, all of which, of course, have storage. There are two bedroom rooms at the back of the bus, one with a full-sized mattress and the other with a full closet. There are three full-size closets throughout the house, providing ample storage for clothing and other goods such as linens. She placed some lined curtains to the main bedroom area where she sleeps so that the space doesn’t get too hot in the summer and she can sleep in if she wants to. She also uses the back window as a shelf for some of her books, which is really effective. This is a fantastic bus renovation that demonstrates what can be accomplished with an old bus and a reasonable price. All of the work and care that went into this mobile home can be seen, which makes it very unique.
