Old School Bus Conversion

Nowadays more and more people are choosing not to live in traditional houses. Some of them just want to experience a nomadic RV lifestyle. Others opt for cheaper housing to pay off their student loans faster. Christine Saldana and Kathy Mariscal wanted to save money for their wedding.

The cost of living in Los Angeles is quite high, so instead of continuing to rent their separate apartments (around $4,500 per month), the couple decided to buy and renovate a late ‘80s school bus.

The purchase cost them $7,500 and the total cost of renovated space was approximately $50,000.

While professionals took care of electrical wiring, plumbing, etc, the girls designed their future housing from scratch.

The whole school bus renovation process took five months.

The couple equipped the house with all the essentials. Many furniture pieces in the bus-home are custom-made with the help of a family member that owns a furniture business.

The bedroom area is enough to fit a queen-sized mattress.

Like many people nowadays, I love to explore new places. My favorite type is slow travelling, when you can really blend in with locals and learn about new cultures and languages. But I think there are also perfect times for enjoying freshly baked pastry, a cup of fragrant coffee, and a good movie in the comfort of your own home. I guess I'm kind of a cultural omnivore, and I watch different types of movies, but the ones about art and food inspire me the most!
