Old, Run-Down Public Bus Transformed Into Luxury Home In Israel

By: | November 20th, 2014

Housing access is a huge issue in Israel but few consider the idea of converting nonresidential structures into homes.

However, two Israeli women picked up an old bus from a scrap yard near their home in Sharon, Israel and totally transformed it into an affordable living space with modern luxuries.

Their idea to transform the bus came after reading  a magazine article that focused on alternative housing solutions, such as converting containers and tents into living spaces.

After buying the old bus from the scrap yard, the two women got to work immediately. They kept the bus’s windows and general layout and formalized their design around it, simply stripping the inside of the bus to make it cleanlier.

  • Bright orange booth seating right behind the wheel with an ergonomic kitchen on the opposite side
  • Polished wood tops for the kitchen counter with sleek white shelves
  • Bathroom and shower area with frosted glass doors along with a chic white wardrobe and a portrait of Audrey Hepburn
  • A plush bedroom in the back doubles as a couch
  • All the modern day facilities available such as air conditioning and hot water

Now, the women want to sell their revamped bus for $300,000. Any takers?
