When Josiah Deor-Williams saw the 1994 Dallas commuter bus, he didn't just see a form of transportation; he saw the beginnings of a cozy, comfortable, affordable home. With a love of travel and a woodworker's hands, he and his wife Christy set out to convert the bus into a charming mobile home, and succeeded.
The one of a kind home offers cedar accents on the exterior, creating extra overhead space and giving the home a quaint, lovable look.
With 280 square feet of living space, the home looks larger on the inside than you'd think. Little touches like real oak hardwood flooring give the home an authentic feel. A wood burning stove fits in perfectly, even with modern fixtures, and the antique piece is shabby chic at its best, lending a warm, comfortable feel to the home.
Custom built cabinets add plenty of kitchen space, and wooden countertops, shelves, and a bar offer room to cook and eat. Deor-Williams' woodworking skills are second to none and make the kitchen come to life, bringing to mind a rustic cabin. The kitchen is equipped with a stainless steel double sink, propane range, and three-way refrigerator. A stunning tile mosaic decorates the kitchen countertops and creates visual appeal.
A hammock swings lazily in the center of the bus offering a relaxing spot to hang out.
Towards the back of the bus is a bedroom with enough space for a double bed. A gorgeous cut glass window sparkles in the background, and even more custom cabinets offer storage space for clothing and other essentials. A wooden ladder reveals an overhead loft with even more sleeping space. The loft features several of the same cut glass windows, giving the bus an antique look and adding to its charm. Built in shelves along the sides of the bus hold books.
One of the most impressive features the bus offers is the greenhouse roof. Environmental and structurally sound, the roof offers in plenty of natural light, while trapping heat and creating a greenhouse effect. Not to mention, it looks absolutely beautiful. Shelves built around the edge of the roof hold potted plants for a touch of greenery.
Though the Williams family had their fair share of adventures living on the bus and exploring the country, they put their creation up for sale in order to raise money to fund their dream of moving to Alaska. The impressive piece of architecture sold within a week of Williams posting the bus for sale, and he received thousands of inquiries regarding the beautiful bus.
