1990 Thomas School Bus Tiny House With Wood Burning Stove

At just 192 square feet, this Thomas school bus turned tiny house doesn’t provide much room. For those who care more about build quality and rustic looks though, the tight confines might be worth overlooking.

The seller says that the bus originally served the State of North Carolina, but was put out of service in 2013 with 181,000 original miles on its engine.

Oh my gosh! I love this bus and its open, airy feel. I wish to God I had the $$$ to buy this and go traveling around the country.

While there’s no bathroom, you could rig a makeshift exterior gravity shower.
