If you’ve ever thought a “skoolie” sounded fun, you are good luck! This beautiful Bluebird school bus conversion is the perfect new tiny home on wheels just waiting for you to move in and hit the road for a new adventure!
Currently being listed at just $35,000, this 2001 Bluebird school bus is 36′ long and fully customized, and ready to live in while on the road. The 5.9 Cummins Diesel Engine has 127,701 miles on it which are still low for a diesel engine. The transmission was rebuilt in 2020 as well as a new gas tank having been installed. It’s even had a recent oil change so you are ready to hop in and take off!
Inside this school bus conversion you will find:
- Spacious main living area with fireplace that also includes a loveseat and large sofa that easily can be used for additional sleeping space.
- Kitchenette with built-in 2-burner cooktop, mini refrigerator, and storage for pantry supplies.
- Single bunk in hall with washer and dryer combination beneath along with additional storage.
- Bathroom with sizable shower, composting toilet, and sink.
- Back of bus office space with desk shelf built into the wall.
Painted blue with white accents, this schoolie is a beautifully modern, and unique tiny home on wheels. One of my favorite accents is the fact that rather than a traditional bus door, they have replaced it with a traditional house door! How unique is that?!
Blinds conveniently close off the front of the bus so it feels private when parked. No worries about someone peeking in on you, but also an easy fix to raise for when you are ready to hit the road.
You’ll love the wooden ceiling, beautiful modern wood floors, and of course, the classic white shiplap paneling on the walls. Along with these accents are dark wood pieces throughout and plenty of extra storage shelves and cubbies for all of your day-to-day needs.
You even have a television mounted above the front of the living space for easy movie nights in! Of course, you can stay cool in the summer with the many windows opened for a nice breeze and warm in the winter with the handy living room fireplace.
Behind the living space, you have the kitchenette and hall to the bathroom and a single bunk. A small counter contains the cooktop, sink, and refrigerator along with limited counter space. You do, however, have plenty of storage beneath the sink as well as under the sofa in the living space.
Below is just a nice look at the shiplap and wood ceiling and panels throughout the bus. Quality and modern style were a huge part of this build.
Down the hall, you find a single bunk on a raised platform. This is out of the way and cozy for a “bedroom” but has tons of space for storage. Plus you have room for the laundry system and hookups so doing your own laundry on the road is easier than ever!
The combination washer and dryer tucks easily into this space but could be replaced with more shelving or a cabinet for storage if you prefer to do you laundry elsewhere and use that for storage.
The narrow hall leads you to the back of the home with the bathroom just before the bunk and against the kitchen. This use of the space made it easy to tie in the water tanks and plumbing right next to each other.
Another angle of the bunk shows you the full-sized space that is ready to sleep two in comfort.
Through the door to the bathroom, you find a small but modern space with a toilet on one side, a shower against the far wall, and a sink right inside the door to the left. e
The petite sink gives you enough room for day-to-day things like washing hands and brushing teeth without taking up a ton of room. Plus, you have a wall-mounted mirror just above that could be a medicine cabinet for additional storage.
I love how the shower fits against the curved roofline of the bus. While it is a smaller space, the shower feels open and large and even includes built-in shelves for shampoo and soap.
There is even an exhaust fan above the bathroom for convenience!
The very back of the “schoolie” is perhaps my favorite space in this build. A simple “office” has been built here with a wall-mounted shelf large enough to become your desk. Plus you have windows and that back door that can be covered with blinds or left open for a view. This is the ideal space for a kid’s classroom on the road or your home office!
Of course, no home on wheels is complete without a great set of solar panels on top for additional energy resources. These come with the bus and are a great investment to help you take this off-grid when desired.
