Hello, my husband and I currently want to buy a school bus and convert it..we've been wanting to do it for 2 or so years. He's a teacher and musician and I'm an editor/writer. We want to live a nomadic sustainable life inside a beautiful bus, with our two cats and a dog. We've been reading about conversions, designing our ideal bus and we are now on the hunt for the bus. We're tired of renting, and to buy a place in Melbourne ( at least a 2 bedroom flat ) sets us on a mortgage for at least 350,000. Neither of us want that. So I'm glad I've joined!
