The dining area in the bus. GLOUCESTERSHIRE, ENGLAND: Landscape Architect and farmer Luke Whitaker (37) from Gloucestershire, UK, had just moved back to his home town to live with his parents and save money for a deposit on a house when the coronavirus lockdown hit the UK. While his parents were happy for him to move back to the farm they owned and for Luke to provide a helping hand around the place, his father was very concerned about the potential impact of covid-19 if it entered their house. They decided they needed a safer living solution and so Luke and his father Joe Whitaker (63), found a BMC Falcon 2001 bus in a bus breakers yard in Hereford that cost him L1,300. Living in the bus allowed Luke to continue working and save money for a house of his own, as well as keeping him and his family socially distanced as covid-19 swept across the world. As the bus had a seized engine, there was never any question of driving it anywhere. However, it didn?t leak and the structural elements were solid which made it a great base for a quirky homestead on the farm. Luke spent L8,500 on completely stripping and redecorating the interior of the vehicle, learning conversion and DIY skills from YouTube along the way. Having lived in the bus for two months now, Luke has been able to save L2,000 - working out as triple what we could save when he was renting. Halfway through the build, Luke met media producer Nikisha McIntosh (33) on Bumble and the two hit it off, even using the bus as a second date spot as a result of the pubs being closed. Nikisha got involved in the final stages of the conversion by choosing the soft furnishings and now stays with Luke in the bus at weekends. mediadrumworld.com/Luke Whitaker
