When 29-year-old Patrick Schmidt decided that he wanted to take a major time-out from the rat race, he hatched a plan. He and his dad bought an old school bus for $4,500 and set to work converting it into a dream motor home. Take a look at the impressive results:
|It all started with an old school bus that was previously owned by a church. It had been well-maintained and the mileage was low.|
|This before and after shot shows how Patrick an his dad completely transformed the bus' interior.|
|Patrick and his dad hard at work removing old rivets from the bus' roof before installing new insulation and roof lining.|
|The build took father and son three months of hard work and $9,000 but...|
|...the final result turned out truly spectacular!|
|The bus features solar panels on its roof to supply most of its energy needs.|
|There's even a sink complete with a tiled counter-top.|
|No motor home would be complete without a complement of bathroom facilities...|
|...or pink LED accent lighting.|
|Installing a new air-conditioning unit was his dad's idea, Patrick admits.|
|Not a bad place to be while on a 10,000-mile-long road trip through 30 U.S. states.|
Patrick is planning a stay in Florida in March before heading home to Las Vegas and then on to Seattle. He's really living life out on the open road.
