    I really like that they used a lot of regular furniture instead of building in everything. Its much simpler, probably cheaper, and give it more space.

    I like how you’ve kept the windows open and unobstructed. That’s how I kept my bus too.

    This really exemplifies minimalism at its best. Many things can be easily rearranged as well – concepts are very flexible.

    It’s a really good use of an old bus. It has a lot of potential for improvements but it’s simple and nice. :)
