From the bloggers at Do It Yourself RV.
“I was tired of wasting money on rent for an apartment that I was never using because I worked so much. It didn’t feel natural to spend my free time in my car, to and from work, and feeling too tired on my days off to do anything. There had to be something better, there had to be more. Tiny Living, I thought, might be the answer.” So started the adventures of Patrick Schmidt and his converted bus, Big Blue.
Big Blue was a labor of love for Patrick and his dad.
Patrick purchased the bus from a church in Santa Barbara for $4,500, then drove it to Vegas. No, not to gamble the rest of his money away, but to work on the conversion from bus to long-term livable RV. He’s 29 and he calls himself the “Adventuring Bus Driver”.
The former airport worker from Seattle would spend $8,500 and the next four months at his parent’s home transforming the bus, a 1990 International. The transformation included a dining area as well as a bathroom and bedroom. As bus converters go, Patrick is no slouch. His design is simple, but well executed.
