For homeowners seeking a simpler life and apartment dwellers dreaming of their own space, tiny houses represent an inspiring, attainable ideal. For those fueled by wanderlust, converted buses—they call them “skoolies”—take the tiny house adventure one step further. And unlike the bohemian house buses of 1960s counterculture, many of today’s conversions adhere to a contemporary aesthetic of sleek minimalism.
In The Modern House Bus , journalist Kimberley Mok shares ten buses that are sure to inspire. These are families following a new American dream that values financial freedom over square footage, adventure over manicured lawns. Designed to fit the owner’s lifestyle and needs, these conversions are filled with inventive architectural details, creative materials, and unique style. With photographs of the buses and their breathtaking surroundings, floor plan diagrams, and space-saving hacks, this is a book for aspiring bus- owners and armchair adventurers alike.
