1.5-Year Timelapse of a School Bus Turned Mobile Home: Watch

A team converts an old school bus into a livable home with a shower, kitchen, bed, and lounge. Oh, yeah — they also extended the roof by a few feet!

As if school buses aren’t big enough, this group of handy people took it a step further by completely chopping the roof off, adding extenders, and increasing the standing area by a whole lot.

While the video doesn’t quite show the finishing touches, they get awfully close to finishing the job!

If you haven’t heard about the mobile home school bus (aka “skoolie”) craze, you have to check out the adventures of GearJunkie’s own Emerald Mile Bus.
