夫妻俩利用技术实现校车完美改造


很多人都对校车改造情有独钟,因为一辆合适的校车就是一个小的可移动的家,就可以带来一次与众不同的冒险之旅。那我们接下来要介绍的这一对夫妇的故事定能让你对校车的喜爱有增无减。Will Hitchcock 和Alyssa Pelletier都曾是硅谷中的精英,但纷纷厌倦于这种机械化的工作中,于是一起辞职决定去“看看这个世界”。他俩没有选择豪华游轮,没有选择飞机火车却独独选择改造校车。改造工程一开始就干劲十足,还起了一个独特的名字“户外新发现”。从去年年初一直到今年夏天,这对夫妇和他们的爱犬Hilde已驾车行驶4500英里,穿越五大洲,还在途中参加了一次婚礼。


一切都很美好,可是之前我们报道过的很多改造校车其实徒有其表,实用性并不强。Hitchcock夫妇的房车一开始也没有逃过这一弊端,但俩人很快就意识到这一问题,选择了越野性能最好的通用汽车,花费了几个月的时间认真而专业地进行校车改造,使它真正成为一辆耐用性强又造型美观的改造校车。首先是将车体内部地面做加强处理,内部进行重新设计,并且在车体外安装太阳能。值得一提的是,两人在细节处用心颇多,都是为了能够真正改造成一辆智能实用的一栋房车。


改造后的房车拥有一个功能齐全的厨房、一个休息室,一个嵌入式睡觉的床,一个可以淋雨的卫生间,甚至还有一个小型的书房,里面陈列各种高科技办公设备,足以让俩人远程办公,管理自己的公司。车内外的储藏空间非常大,包括卧室下面的箱子,角落处的橱柜等等。这对夫妇将改造房车的详细技术,必备的工具、硬件都发布到网上,通过社交媒体,房车改造爱好者们都能借鉴学习。

This couple ditched their tech jobs for life and work on the road in a converted school bus


We know how much our readers love school bus renovation projects, tiny houses, and tales of adventure, so we’re especially excited to share the story of Will Hitchcock and Alyssa Pelletier, a couple who left their Silicon Valley jobs to hit the road in their own cozy converted school bus. The renovation project, dubbed Outside Found, began in early 2015 and by summertime, the duo was ready to roll—along with their number one adventure dog, Hilde. They racked up over 4,500 miles that season, traveled during the winter, and are now in the midst of a journey that will include five states, one wedding (!), and a host of other cool milestones.


Many of the converted bus projects we feature are total eye candy and this one is no exception, but it’s more nuts and bolts than bells and whistles. After months of work, Pelletier and Hitchcock transformed an ordinary school bus into a chic minimalist dream. Not all buses are created equal, and it took some time before the couple found the perfect bus for their renovation project. They settled on a 37-foot 2001 GMC BlueBird found on Craigslist, and spent the early part of 2015 gutting it to build their dream home on wheels. The couple reinforced the floor, designed and built out the interior, added solar panels, and thoughtfully crafted a ton of details to create a smart and functional adventure-mobile inside 200 square feet.


The bus now includes a fully functional kitchen, cozy lounge space, a sleeping nook, a bathroom with a shower, and a high-tech office where the two run their consulting company. The bedroom, in a back corner of the bus, has a cute skylight and storage shelves made from wooden crates. The bus is outfitted with tons of storage, both in exterior bins under the living space as well as smart nooks and shelves inside the cabin. The pair reveal many of the tools, products, and hardware that went into the renovation project right on their website, enabling other DIY hopefuls to learn from their research, as well as their trial and error.


Follow their journey across the continent on the Outside Found website, where the duo shares stories from the road, including tips for anyone who might want to have a school bus adventure of their own.
