In the last couple of years Skoolies, aka retired school buses, have become a very popular alternative to live tiny.
The neat thing about a Skoolie is that you are repurposing an old school bus that has been put out to pasture. Often these buses have very low mileage yet the law requires them to be taken off the school roster after so many miles.
The bus body itself offers a great foundation to recreate a home on wheels. I had the opportunity to see several converted Skoolies at a recent Tiny House Living Festival in Washington and one was even being constructed on the premises.
With this heavy-duty foundation, a Skoolie can be stripped down and totally reconstructed as you choose. Many people add walls to separate bedrooms, kitchens and living areas. There is usually plenty of room for a bathroom as well. Skoolies also can be very small or very large.
I hope you enjoy learning more about Skoolies in the Tiny House Magazine issue.
