    Former Dublin Bus double decker gets an...em.....new lease of life......

    A former Dublin Bus double decker, fully operational and working, was bought for 3000 (circa 3750) and has been transformed into a home by an English couple in Canterbury. Very inventive too be sure. But it also screams property bubble at me as well.....

    One can press the stop bell to let the wife know you are ready for dinner.

    I hope the Dublin Bus doesnt come with it's own resident ghosts.
    The ghosts would be breutal on a Saturday night.

    Call me weird, but (apart from the decor) it looks strangely attractive - beats the s*** out of any camper I ever saw, for one thing.

    Nothing new about it. People in the past converted buses and trams into homes.

    The bus still drives as well, which makes it a mobile home with no fixed address and no registered property interest.

    Phil Hogan will not be happy.
