One of a Kind School Bus Conversion

This 1959 Chevrolet Viking School Bus’s restoration was spearheaded by Will Winkelman of Winkelman Architecture. It can be used as a camper, transport 12 people, sleep 4, and be used as a guest room at his home in Portland, Maine.

The restoration required lifting the body off the frame and fabricating some replacement parts. While it may look like a groovy old school bus, a lot of time and effort has gone into this restoration. Photos by Winkelman Architecture.

The house looks to be about 12-by-18 foot, and whilst not stated on their AirBnB page, the usable square footage is probably in the range of 300 square feet when you include the loft. The house is a pet project of DIY enthusiasts, Jenny and Michael, who built the home from as many recycled and repurposed elements as possible.” – Humble Homes

Lyset Paa Lista – An Outpost to Preserve Rural Norway

The structure itself was built with the help of locals and architecture students from both Norway and Mexico. According to the architects the project was formed in typical TYIN fashion, the design of the outpost took place in tandem with the building process. Part of this was due to pragmatic factors like the availability of materials and costs. In just three weeks the professionals, students and volunteers managed to complete Lyset Paa Lista.” – Humble Homes.

Tiny Treehouse, Crazy Swing

This treehouse and swing combination isn’t for the faint-hearted. La Casa del Árbol (The Treehouse) in Baños, Ecuador,is a seismic checking station built on top of a single tree on the edge of a cliff face. While the treehouse itself is a unique structure, it’s the swing that really steals the show. Called the “Crazy Swing” and fastened to the treehouse above, you can take a swing out over the cliff edge which is 8,350 feet above sea level.” – Niall
