Double Decker Days: DIY Vacation Home

Double Decker Days: DIY Vacation Home

I have the utmost respect for those willing to take on new adventures and ideas that haven't really been done before. Take Crystal Thomas, for instance. The Australian was looking to buy a home in Melbourne, but financially it just wasn't in the cards. Instead, she found this double decker bus on eBay and she's turning it into a vacation home. This you've got to see!

Crystal is working 10 hours a week on transforming her new vacation home as she lives and works a solid hour away from where it currently sits. She's aided by her friends and family members as they pull rivets, patch holes in the roof and unstick windows that are corroded with moss.

The journey won't be easy, but it should be as rewarding as it will be cool by the time she's done with it. Crystal has worked in the interior design field for several years so although she might be new to bus renovations, she's not new to spatial relations and making the most out of what you have.

Check out Readymade for an interview with Crystal about the process and what she hopes to achieve. We're excited to watch her push forward, make sure to hop over to her blog Double Decker Days for fabulous photos as they work and stories about their adventures
