The couple bought a school bus and converted it into a comfortable mobile home to avoid paying rent

There are houses of all shapes and sizes. Whether it’s a castle, a waterfront home, or a home with a highly functional prison in the basement, there are no limits to the living space.

You can even do the same thing as this young couple: they bought an old-school school bus and turned it not only into a vehicle, but also into a comfortable mobile home in which these two and their lovely dog ​​now live.

Meet Christine Saldana and Katie Mariscal, a couple who have created an unusual living space.

Meet Christine Saldana and Katie Mariscal, a couple who bought public transport in hopes of turning it into a mobile home.

You might think they did it to travel. But that’s not true, they were much more practical. To be honest, the Californian couple wanted to get married, and living in Los Angeles isn’t the cheapest.

The two bought a bus, which they converted into a fully furnished 27.7 m² house.

So they found a solution. Instead of living in their own apartments (the monthly rent was about $4,500), they bought a school bus for $7,500.

They quickly found that while they were very confident and capable of converting the bus into a house.

Although the bus itself cost $7,500, after repairs the cost increased to about $50,000.

The house has all the essentials that could be needed in a living space. The spacious living room, kitchen, pantry and children’s room, bathroom, bedroom and driver’s seat are distributed over the 27.7 square meter bus. There is also electricity and running water.

It has a living room, kitchen, dining area, bedroom and bathroom.

The interior is cozy, modern and minimalistic. The living room has a sofa, sofa chair, bookshelf and TV stand. The bedroom has space for a double bed and a bedside table. The kitchen is equipped with everything you need: sink, fridge, kitchenware and a whole dining area and the bathroom has a sink, toilet and shower.

Much of the renovation work has been done by professionals but the ladies have designed everything from scratch.

The entire project cost approximately $50,000. With the average home price in the Los Angeles metropolitan area being around half a million dollars, you can imagine how much money they might have saved and even made an adventure out of!

The idea of ​​​​moving to the bus came from the fact that the ladies were planning a wedding and needed to save money for housing and other necessities.

They never intended to travel. Travel is just a bonus to the bus’ main function – maintaining a stable, minimalist lifestyle. You can see more about the bus and his life on her Instagram page.
