What would it take for you to want to completely change your life? For Will and Alyssa, a couple living in Los Angeles and working in Silicon Valley, it was an old school bus. Will and Alyssa were both part of the booming tech industry that has enraptured so many young business professionals. However, the couple always wanted more. They wanted to connect with nature and work from anywhere in the world as their own bosses. So what came next was natural: they took a 37′ school bus and converted it into a house on wheels. This is a life changing journey, captured in pictures.
Every great adventure has humble beginnings. Here is the inside of the bus before a day’s worth of work had been put into the conversion process. Will and Alyssa had to grind off all of the interior rivets and remove the paneling and insulation.
Alyssa claims that the key to success removing wall rivets came in having two grinders going. With both sets of hands busy they were able to remove the side panels in under three hours. So far all of the insulation behind the paneling was clean and dry.
Nearly seven months later and little Hilde can finally sleep in her new home. The job is finally done and their new home is ready to hit the road. It hasn’t been an easy trip but the work has easily been worth it. If you really liked this bus why not buy it? It’s for sale! Check out the listing here.
