We are working toward building alternative, affordable, safe, and healthy housing by converting buses into homes for low income residents of Thurston County.
We purchased the two 40’ buses from the Tumwater School District in August 2018 with the help of a volunteer. We held two work parties to remove seats and flooring. These work parties were very successful as all the seats were removed and the floor of one bus was completed. Our volunteers who helped expressed interest in continuing the build through to completion.
Build A Bus Home is offering a solution to the problems we addressed:
Affordable, healthy, and safe –YES! Cost will be based on income or lack of income, cost of living, and other factors in compliance with State and Federal Laws. More details to follow as the Board develops this further. No discrimination – all income levels accepted.
- City/County planning & zoning laws that are outdated
- Water for tanks
- Land with buildings for converting buses, office space, classrooms, a café, an art and recording studio
- Washington State & Federal poverty guidelines
