Full tour of an epic DIY skoolie conversion! Jacob & Tessa from The Free to Wander Bus on facebook built this tiny school bus mobile home using mostly reclaimed and second hand materials. They completed the project, (including the cost of the conversion, the bus, new tires, and mechanical repairs to get it road worthy) for under $12,000 CAD ($9,300 US)!
Seven years ago, Jeremy and Mira Thompson quit their jobs and sold their suburban home to hit the road in a short-bus they’d converted into a mobile home. After a year on the road, they’d gone through their savings and were thinking about starting a family.
“Aaron converted this vintage baby blue school bus into a debt free tiny home for less than $4,500, and the interior design is absolutely stunning.
“This family is hitting the road and doing it in style! They have converted a simple school bus into an unbelievably comfortable home. The entire bus is designed to be off-the-gird giving them perfect freedom to roam wherever they choose.”
Some people may skip over this story by thinking “oh, I don’t want to live in a bus”. But the larger story of downsizing and living free is far more important. It’s no fun being stuck in a dead end job you don’t like. In this video you meet Jax who made up his mind to break free of the rat race, and by doing so discovered freedom. He said he gained far more than he gave up.
