See how a family of 5 turned a bus into a most welcoming home with a lovely kitchen

The Jamesons decided to go off the grid and live in a converted school bus to lead a more planet-friendly, adventurous life. Their beautiful home, nicknamed the Blue Ridge Mountain Bus, is fully equipped with everything the family needs, including a bathroom, bedroom, kitchen and plenty of living space. Powered by solar panels, the home is also eco-friendly and inexpensive to maintain. The family parks their home on a homestead in North Carolina and helps other families build their own bus homes.
The outside of the bus is loaded with charm. The gorgeous greenery, shabby chic table and chairs, and colorful artwork surrounding the home is so pretty that visitors can't wait to get inside to see the interior. The Jamesons have put thought into every inch of their bus, and it shows from the minute you step on and see this beautifully embellished iron piece along the stairs.

The living area of the bus is a cozy retreat. The ceiling-mounted TV is easy to view, and two custom sofas, which function as beds for two of the couple's children and double as closets and storage, are filled with comfortable pillows and blankets.
Custom hardwood flooring adds warmth to the home and gives it that lived-in look, while overhead wooden shelves provide storage space and decor options. A pendant lamp creates visually appealing lighting, and banners and chalkboards lend a rustic touch. Notice the globe above the window!
The kitchen is easily the jewel of this home. Built-in shelves and cabinets provide storage, and the kitchen features a full-sized refrigerator, sink, stove with range and wooden countertops.
Unfinished wooden shelves are a striking addition to the space, and the light green color of the space contrasts well with the wood. It's easy to see why the couple is so proud of this part of the bus.
Wood-paneled walls lead down the hallway to the rest of the bus, which houses a small, special bedroom for the couple's son, who has cerebral palsy. A small, accessible bathroom features a standup shower and a planet-friendly composting toilet.
The Jamesons' bed sits on a platform to accommodate the bus's rear engine. The couple creatively installed a dresser under the bed to save space. Gorgeous green, custom-built drawers house clothing, and a window above the cozy bed offers a glimpse of the scenery outside.
Imagine unwinding at the end of a long day on this beautiful patio. String lights add a festive touch, and there's plenty of space for dining al fresco or simply relaxing and watching kids at play.
