Help solve the housing problem – conversion of bus into home

Problem with not enough affordable student residences in London?   Hotels too expensive.

University of Minnesota architecture student converts a $3,000 bus into a mobile minimalist home for 6 people, starting as a project to respond to the ‘tiny house movement’ which advocates pared-down sustainable living and which building codes for housing don’t help:

‘building code just doesn’t allow for buildings under 600 square feet and requires all sorts of permits for septic and electrical, even if you’re not interested in having those things, and we heard that if we were on wheels we could get away with anything we wanted.’
