This little red converted bus's kitchen is packed with lovely artisan details

A small, rustic converted bus can really shine through with wonderful amenities. Such is the case of the Little Red Ruby Bus, an Oregon crater lake vacation rental with a difference.
Putting the "tiny" in tiny living, this lovely little 1963 Ford Short bus is brimming with handcrafted fittings and pleasant artisan touches throughout. Check it out for yourself:

It's clear how the converted bus got its name, right? The dashing exteriors appeal to vintage affinities.
If you feel like getting a panoramic view of the surrounding landscape, there's always room on the roof. According to its Airbnb listing, the bus is parked by a three-acre pond, not too far away from some of the area's most popular landmarks.
Because of its compact size, what you see is what you get: a cozy sleeping area, a sweet little dining space and a full-size kitchen.
In this bus conversion, though, it's the smallest details that matter the most.
The dining area features a cushy leather chair and a hand-carved cedar table.
A custom copper sink is easily the kitchen's shining star.
That being said, we can't let the hand-painted details surrounding us go by unnoticed. Just look at the stained glass effect produced on the kitchen's top windows.
Or even the vibrant hand-painted murals adorning the ceiling.
And let's not forget the feathery touches making a splash in between.
Family photos and the aforementioned murals will put anyone who steps into the bedroom at ease — humans and felines alike. The double bed definitely helps too.

As you can see, there's nothing stopping a tiny bus from being gracious and homely. The Little Red Ruby Bus may be compact by definition, but she packs a punch with artisan elements and practicality.
