Hank Butitta was weary of two things: projects that he would throw away upon completion, and paying for expensive housing.
“This project was a way to show how building a small structure with simple detailing can be more valuable than drawing a complex project that is theoretical and poorly understood.”
“The bus was purchased for $3,000 on Craigslist and has had about $6,000 of improvements. It’s not pocket change, but it’s less than a down payment on a home.”
Hank’s creative mobile home is equipped with everything you need, including two beds, a small kitchen and a bathroom…and the “hardwood” floor? Actually, those are repurposed gym floors.
In Hank’s words: “As a whole these elements come together to form the ultimate road trip vehicle, if not yet a fully livable space. I’m looking forward to pushing this project further, continuing to build out the necessary systems and modifying the elements that need more iteration, in order to better understand living in tiny spaces, and expand discussion about living small.”
