Treehugger explains the transformation:

Two women from Even Yehuda, Israel recently converted a decommissioned bus into a elegantly minimalist home, hoping to propose an affordable alternative in a country where housing access is a hot-button issue. … According to Oddity Central, Tali Shaul, a psychotherapist, and Hagit Morevski, an ecological pond water treatment specialist, are friends who were looking for a creative project to collaborate on.

The result is a contender for best tiny home and best mobile home ever. It’s the only project we’ve ever seen that fulfills both our fantasies of living out of a groovy bus like 1960s-era hippies or Scooby Doo characters and our fantasies of living in a home so swank it could be featured in a design magazine.
