A couple who were worried about being able to buy their own house have finally managed to purchase their own home – by renovating an old church bus into an incredible RV apartment.

When Christopher Stoll and his girlfriend Tori spotted an ad on a Texas Craigslist page, for a beaten up 1988 church bus they swooped in and bought it for a cool $1,000 – the couple  then spent $10,000 transforming it into an amazing place to live.

When the couple first bought the bus, they found it was full of rust, a few birds’ nests and perhaps most shockingly the engine hadn’t been started in months.

But despite it being in a pretty poor state, Mr Stoll drew up a rough blueprint and girlfriend started stripping the interior of the bus of its seats and flooring.

Meanwhile he began work on the engine, changing the filters and rebuilding the transmission, which proved to be the biggest expense at $3,500.

The bus was then wired for electricity and plumbing installed and once that was completed the couple began to work on the interior.

They also installed solar power panels, before building a bed frame, which even has space for storage.

The incredible RV has a mini fridge, proper cupboards and a place for them to relax.

Now the couple plan to hit the road and travel across America while working on their art.

Mr Stoll wrote on his Imgur blog:

We live on the bus full time now, and travel the country together.

We don’t have a lot of money, and so the bus acts as our home and mobile studio.

I make a living doing concept art and illustration online, no room for professional tablets so I draw everything on my ipad and Tori does the editing!
