A few years ago, Brian and Starla Sullivan of Renton, Washington, USA, realized that rent was too high for them and they simply couldn’t afford it.
But instead of despairing, they found a very unusual way out of the situation: the family moved into a school bus.
When Starla suggested that Brian move to live on a school bus, the man thought that his wife was just joking.
However, after she told him about all the benefits of this venture, he realized that in fact this is the best option for their family.
In the end, they decided to purchase an old school bus worth $2,800, where they moved with their three children, Charlie (3 years old), Henry (2 years old) and Lincoln (3 months old).
The family has invested a lot of time and money to transform the bus into a cozy place to live.
However, soon their works gave the first results.
The Sullivan family has managed to transform an old bus into a cozy home with a living room and a fully equipped kitchen.
In addition, they managed to make a nice bathroom with a full bathtub.
The undoubted plus is that the family now pays $500 a month for rent, which is a third of the amount that they previously paid for the rent of their tiny apartments.
As other costs such as electricity and water have also come down, the couple can now save for their children’s education.
Another benefit of moving to cheaper housing was that Brian no longer had to work overtime to pay his rent and can now spend more time with his wife and children.
The Sullivan family lives very happily in their bus, they also admit that if they ever think about moving, they will most likely choose some unusual place again, and not a simple apartment.
