Alternative Living Spaces: Gorgeous Renovated School Bus

Alternative Living Spaces, Alternative Transportation, Design, Photography

hankbus18Architecture graduate student Hank Buttita wanted to build a cabin on his grandfather’s land. But building codes made the project cost-prohibitive, so he bought an old school bus off Craigslist for $3K and set about making it livable (and beautiful!) to the tune of about $6K in improvements. It even turned out to become his Master’s thesis project.

Since then, he’s been traveling across the US in his creation, and documenting the experience on his web site, Hank Bought A Bus.

Here’s a video where he talks about his project:

All photos on this post were taken by Justin Evidon, a photographer who has accompanied Hank throughout his journey. I discovered this project via Grist.org.
