Man Quits Job and Converts School Bus Into an Awesome Traveling Motorhome





Renovating the 189-square foot bus cost another $9,000, and a lot of knuckle grease. But by the end of their project, the mobile home became a fully functional amenity-filled caravan with a bedroom, kitchen with a sink, fridge, and freezer, a bathroom with hot and cold water, and even air conditioning.

Patrick describes his new lifestyle as a “jobless, perpetually short of money, and living in a tiny home” dream. While he is currently living on the money he has saved in over 10 years of working 9-to-5 jobs, he lives frugally and only spends on the essentials.

Coming on the heels of spending on renting an apartment he seldom lived in because he was working his butt off to afford the rent in the first place, having a miniature living space he can call his own and move from place to place in his dream come true.

Patrick, who is a veteran of 20 residential moves since the time of his birth, took to living in his converted school bus like a duck to water. For him, his new school bus dwelling is home.

Patrick plans on journeying through more states over the winter, and is chronicling his adventures on his blog, Skookielove, which promotes the ideals of tiny living.
