We at ViralNova seriously love tiny houses. The tiny house trend is steadily gaining steam across the country and around the world as people reconsider the footprints they leave on the planet. It almost seems like everyone wants to figure out how they can live a more environmentally and financially responsible life. Aside from the larger-scale benefits of a small house, they”re also always amazing to look at in their ingenuity. They”re super darn cute, too.
In 2011, Mira and Jeremy Thompson purchased a 1989 school bus–you know, the classic big yellow kind that you probably spent a considerable amount of time on as a child. After that, the couple put some serious work into converting the 37-foot vehicle into a usable home. The results? Charming, as always.
The Thompsons were sure to make use of every inch of space, which is pretty much required when you only have 37 feet of house to work with. They also made use of recycled, reclaimed, and second-hand materials, which kept the cost of the makeover relatively cheap.
The bus”s makeover took time to complete, of course, and it finally made its debut this past October. It can still drive, and the couple did take it on a little trip to show it off. However, it”s not really built as a mobile home, just a tiny one. Whether or not it drives, though, it”s a great way to recycle old things and create something new and adorable!
