When you become a father for the first time, what you want most is to provide for your family, to give your child or children the best opportunities in life and to provide shelter, food and anything else is the priority.
The bond that a family shares is unbreakable and no matter what obstacles or situations arise, at the end of the day you will always have someone who is with you through thick and thin.
Adam Collier, a 42-year-old single father from Brighton, UK, and his teenage daughter Devan’s relationship was no doubt put to the test when they decided to leave town and move to a bus.
Collier, a carpenter by trade and an adventurer by choice, shares a passion for surfing with his daughter and after much thought, set out on a mission to convert an old bus into a home for his little family.
When a practically abandoned bus appeared before Adam’s eyes, he understood that it was time to fulfill his dream.
The vehicle was in salvageable condition and did not require many structural modifications.
Adam decided to do everything with his own hands, setting a budget of around 11,500 euros.
The idea was to carry out the project without anyone’s help and above all I did not want to spend an exorbitant amount of money.
The main challenge was to distribute the weight load and the organization of the internal space.
He adapted the limited space he had to have the basic parts of a conventional house.
Adam put the dining room downstairs, next to the kitchen, bathroom, and didn’t add too much decoration.
To ensure a warm and welcoming environment, he installed insulating covers and interlocking wooden boards with excellent aesthetic effect.
On the top floor, I had gotten 3 rooms for a total of 6 beds, including a bunk bed in the back.
He eventually dubbed his home the Green big bus and to this day shares updates on his home, adventures, lifestyle, and renovations to the bus that became his mobile home.
You can follow his adventures through his Instagram account and see all the changes to the truck.
