Isn’t it great living in the 21 st century where we have YouTube and any dream of yours seems to be exactly one DIY tutorial away! Or maybe a couple of them depending on how big your dream is. And it’s quite safe to say that some people sure dare to dream bigger than others. The hero of today’s story is definitely one of them as he vacated the dream of normal life along with the idea of having a normal residence when he was only 23 years old and began working on his first bus transformation projection. Merely this time, he decided to work on something a bit more eccentric. Scroll down to see his work in progress!
Michael bought this old van
If you think of yourself as adventurous, think again. This guy, Michael, is 28 and wastes most of his time wandering around the world in numerous vehicles that he calls home for some time. He built his first bus when he was only 23. “I wanted to build my own house but I couldn’t afford a property.”
That was originally an ambulance but was later used to transport fake grass
“A bus was about the size of a shipping container except it was cheaper and had an engine. More than that, too many people have that pretext of “I can’t do that thing I want to do because I have a lease” or “It would be too hard to change.” Living in a vehicle gives you that flexible and lets you say yes to so much more( plus living rent-free gives you much more pocket money ), ” he said in an interview with Bored Panda.
With the idea of making a house out of it
Besides building, he too wreaks as an illustrator and says that his illustration knowledge surely help with the planning process and views the relationship between interior design/ house and exemplifying. But he’s actually hoping to start building vehicles full-time and is selling his current project with even bigger ideas in mind.
It took 4 months of construct after duty and on weekends
A few months ago, he started reckoning it’s about time to get off his van and build himself a brand-new house-on-wheels. Therefore, he sold his van, went on Craigslist and noted this “beautiful, boxy behemoth rolled for sale”.
To finish up with this project
The behemoth, as he called it, was a 1992 Ford E-3 50 that used to serve as a small-town ambulance in Tennessee before getting into the handwritings of quite an eccentric high-end AstroTurf company outside of Austin which exploited it for driving rollers of hoax grass and various tools from one responsibility site to another. The companionship retired the old-time ambulance auto after acquiring something more fitting for their purposes.
But Michael hopes to form house vehicles his primary occupation
After cleaning out all the remaining bloodstains, he dumped everything he didn’t need from private vehicles and schemed his activity as can be seen in the pictures. While some people could be bothered by a little of blood staining or the fact that some people may have died in there, Michael chose to see the bright side in that. “Yes, parties probably died in there, but people’s lives were also saved so I feel like it’s a wash.”

And has more jobs in recollection after selling this one
He claims he gets asked a lot where can someone build one of these vehicles he works on and the answer is simple. He meets plazas driving around and while he got lucky to have a friend tell him build a bus on his farm, he choice a junkyard for this ambulance programme so he could be messy without feeling like he had to clean up every day.
He employed a duet different kinds of wood to build the interiors and is surely aware it includes a little bit of heavines but says it’s not enough to make a real difference. And the ambulance is now actually road-worthy with a little of the assistance provided by his mechanic friend.
Michael is glad the finished interior looks pretty close to his original projects. It took 4 months in total to finish up with this project but Michael exclusively worked on it after job and on weekends and said he could finish up in less than a few months if he could have worked on it full-time. Therefore, he is now hoping to form constructing vehicles his full-time job.
