Inside, this converted skoolie offers a cozy cabin oasis

Paved to Pines is a small three-person shop in Saskatchewan, Canada, that works to help customers find the alternative lifestyle they’ve dreamed of. Building custom campers from top to bottom – out of small cargo vans to 40-foot skoolies that can truly go off the grid – the shop creates fully functioning homes with stunning interiors, all on wheels.
Like all of the firm’s design-fueled projects, Mike’s Cabin on Wheels does not feature a boring exterior and white-washed teak interiors. The converted school bus feels more like a cozy cabin than a bus, with a forest green exterior to match. To create the alpine feel, wood paneling on the walls and ceilings is stained in a Pecan MinWax PolyShade.

Right inside, the living space features a beautiful custom sectional sofa in a rich emerald, offering a cozy nook to curl up with a book or enjoy a movie on a custom TV mount. The sectional easily pulls out to create a secondary guest bed, ideal for a night’s stay or a quick nap. Across the bus, a cubic mini wood stove offers major heat in a small package.
In the kitchen, Jade Dragon green paint offers a soft complement to the bright sofa, topped with striking butcher block countertops. A large basin sink is accompanied by an oven and stove top for all the cooking necessities, with extended counters for added prep space or small eating nooks. A pull-down faucet finished in a dark bronze makes a style statement.
The bathroom is complete with a cedar-paneled shower, skylight and Maxxair fan. White subway tile lines the walls for a clean aesthetic.

At the very back of the bus, the bedroom offers a full bed surrounded by windows and a skylight so Mike can take in the stars and sun, like in a true cabin.

Lovingly referred to as 'Le Diable Rouge,' the bus may look small, but it's big on ideas, comfort and details, making this bus the perfect home for its owner.
