So, you found a great deal on an old bus that has some potential to be restored to its former glory. What do you do after you pick it up and find out that it's not salvageable? Transform it into a chic home, like this family. You'll find solar panels for efficiency, along with a wood burning stove and other old school amenities still rule in the English countryside.
bus conversion (skoolie) or camper roof ideas; adding solar panels; there are lots of additional resources on Pinterest and in this board for updated, easy to install, inverters for solar panels on a skoolie or RV; green, environmentally sound; off-grid sustainability; charge up storage batteries; stay powered up off the beaten path… I would build some kind of removable cover for travelling, to prevent thrown rocks, or low-hanging branches from damaging my panels.
