How To Build a Solar Bus Home – Most Amazing Conversion Ever

OK first off... there is no mention of how much he spent on this ;), but I thought it was pretty interesting - cool ideas and solar paneled. And he has plans to purchase some land for mobile people... "His next goal is to purchase agricultural land to begin development of a village on wheels for others who want to live like this. This will be a place where they can grow their own food and exchange value with each other while coming and going as they wish."

I had to share with you this amazing box truck conversion home that was hand built by Joseph Tayyar who was tired of the hustle and bustle of the city life.

He had the idea in his head four years prior to making it a reality. He spent years planning and building it and did it all himself. Now he gets to enjoy living near the beach, traveling to the desert or even enjoying the city.

Now he’s completely free from property taxes and electricity companies.

His 11 yrs old daughter even has her own bedroom area in the back of the truck

The mobile home has it all: 2 bedrooms, an office area, seating for guests, dining room, kitchen, shower, and toilet.

There’s a large water tank (800 liters) and solar panels on the roof to keep it completely off the grid. Joseph is able to manage his career and work from his computer so he’s not confined to one particular geographical area.

His next goal is to purchase agricultural land to begin development of a village on wheels for others who want to live like this. This will be a place where they can grow their own food and exchange value with each other while coming and going as they wish.

well, i'm sure it's cheaper than buying a house, but still pretty damn pricey. that's a hell of a conversion. especially the pop-out portion, that wasn't cheap. also, that's a ton of solar panels, so you're probably looking at 10k right there.

Wow that box truck conversion was amazing but we found an old Newmar KountryAire at a screaming price. Looking forward to leaving "Babylon" behind.
