Family converts double-decker bus into new home, experiences much more ‘freedom’

A family of six is living out of a double-decker bus after spending thousands of dollars to turn it into a home on wheels.

Conrad Kirk, a 31-year-old father of four, initially treated the idea of moving into a double-decker bus as a “joke,” according to news agency SWNS.

The media business owner and his wife, Nicole, were residents of a three-bedroom rental home in South Yorkshire, England, when they bought the bus for just over $2,000 as a vacation investment.

The family worked to keep the renovation costs down as much as possible, Kirk said.

“We sort of worked around what was disposable to us to keep costs down — like using recycled bits and reusing some items,” he also said. 

“We have the freedom to actually go and experience things as a family that we didn’t get to do before.”

Kirk said the family often goes paddle boarding and rock climbing — all activities the kids have experienced for the first time while living on the bus.
