Expedition Happiness - home on a school bus

What happens when 2 creative travellers get their hands on a huge yellow school bus? 

They turn it into the coolest home on 4 wheels! Felix Starck, Selima Taibi and their dog Rudi (a rather large Bernese Mountain dog) are travelling in this converted bus from Alaska to Argentina - it's Expedition Happiness. The conversion was alot of work and there is now an incredible amount of storage without taking up too much valuable space. The sofa is designed with 2 large drawers for camera gear and folds out into a double bed. The queen sized bed in the bedroom area has one half that folds up so they can store bulky items like an outdoor table, guitar, and tools. The other half has 4 big drawers for clothes. Towels, toilet paper etc. is housed in the big closet and the cubbies behind the bed function as a nightstand alternative. There is even a 32" TV in there. On top of being totally functional with a complete kitchen and shower stall, it's beautifully designed and decorated in rustic wood and white. Simple and bright and all you really need. It is totally gorgeous and now I want my own school bus to convert!! You can follow them on Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, or their blog. I am soooo jealous.

I wish I could fit my "essentials" into one of those- I'd hit the road and never stop! ;)

Love the style and flow of your school bus, really the best I could find online! Congrats and hope you are having loads of fun. If you don't mind, could you please share the plans of your bus?

hi kids! ok we have just bought a 26 seater bus and love your designs so much we are shamelessly going to steal them :-)

we are in london and will use it for summer months only in europe each summer.

we plan on lpg, solar, 240v hook-up, water heaters etc.

any golden advice ?

thanks
