We have seen Acorn Tiny Homes build some of the best houses ever. Be it Domek, Pine Needle, or Sherloak Homes, each tiny house left a mark; some for their mindboggling interior while others for their cutting-edge exteriors. Here is another creation by the Toronto-based tiny house builder that is sure to impress. Dubbed Burning Man, Acorn Tiny Homes modified a prison bus into a perfectly designed skoolie.
“Our client acquired this prison bus at a state auction and had previously made an attempt at converting it himself. Unfortunately, without the technical knowledge, or the creativity of how to make the space fully functional, he had a skoolie that left a lot to be desired, and was unsafe to occupy,” states Acorn Tiny Homes.
While Acorn does not indulge in bus conversions, the firm took this project on as a one-off and put its skills to the test. Looking at the pictures, we can spot a living room-cum-bedroom, kitchen area, and bathroom packed inside the prison bus that has a blue color finish.
Acorn Tiny Homes mentions, “This bus was tricked out with a commercial grade sound system, a fully off-grid system (solar and water), courtesy of our in-house technical team, and more addressable LED strip lighting than you can shake a stick at.” Clad with an array of solar panels at the top, it seems to be a great alternative to suffice your wanderlust.
Thanks to a number of windows allowing a lot of natural light and air to pass in, the Burning Man skoolie feels bright and airy, even when multiple sections are divided into different rooms. While it’s difficult to decipher which room is located where I assume the lounge-cum-bedroom is at the back of the skoolie which sleeps two people with ease. It also features a shelf for placing nitty-gritty items.

You can enter straightaway into the bedroom or walk in from the living room featuring two sofa beds facing each other. Next, we have a fully functional kitchen that includes all the essentials for preparing scrumptious meals. There is a door separating the kitchen and living room from the end of the skoolie which has a bedroom and a bathroom.
The bathroom features a curb-free luxury shower and a toilet, while the bedroom has custom convertible couches for sleeping. The prison bus leaves enough space for movement during the day and can sleep six to eight people.
