It Was Just A Beat-Up Old Church Bus - Until They Transformed It Into This!

The great thing about this renovation is that they mostly used the cheapest and most readily available materials they could get their hands on to transform the interior.

Imgur user Christopher Stoll and his girlfriend, Tori, have spent the past four months renovating a beaten-up 1988 church bus that they bought off of Craigslist.

From the beginning, their plan was to transform the bus into a “full-time luxury RV for two” — a process that came with many challenges.

Before sprucing up the bus, they found that it was filled with rust, rat feces, and bird nests.
The engine hadn’t been used in months, and none of the electrical systems were in working condition.

Once they got the bus home, they drew up blueprints for the interior.
Then Tori removed the seats, and stripped the floor matting with an ice scraper.

Meanwhile, Christopher worked on the engines.
He replaced the leaky hoses and a few of the corroded wires, and spent quite a heavy sum on rebuilding the transmission.
“With a little love, the bus stopped smoking, spurting fluids, and screaming when we started it,” he wrote. “These old school buses are built like tanks, they’ll run forever if you keep them happy.”

Next came all the wiring and plumbing work, and the installation of a few solar fan vents.

They gave the walls a few coats of paint, too, just to brighten up the space.
Next, they snapped up some tools from Home Depot to construct the flooring.

For the bed, Christopher built a frame onto two cheap cabinets, and allowed space for storage.
Space is left on the bottom, so that they could fit another roll-out bed underneath.

They brought out some old IKEA furniture, including a mini fridge and storage boxes.
The cabinets were bought pre-made at Lowe’s, and were bolted to the floor and to the walls of the bus.

Cushions were propped up near the windows for an extra-cozy, homey touch.

After setting up most of the furniture, they set up a built-in solar power network.

In the end, most of the furnishings, including the countertops, were bolstered with cheap scraps of wood and discount supplies  which was perfect for the couple, who wished to save as much money as possible before embarking on their trip around the world.

They made sure to keep the original “rules” poster of the bus  which hilariously reminded them to not “eat or drink on the bus,” and to “keep the bus clean.”

From now on, Christopher and Tori will use the bus as their home and mobile studio.
Christopher is an online concept art designer and illustrator, and uses his iPad to make most of his drawings. Afterward, Tori does the editing!

We loved this transformation. This couple made the best use of cheap and convenient materials, and, most importantly, built their dream home with their own hands.
