    Hank Bought a Bus

    Architect Hank recently finished his Masters in Architecture at the University of Minnesota, and converted the bus as his Master’s Final Project. He has a passion for working with his hands, and has opted to forego the traditional post-graduate job hunt in order to start his own shop. Interesting read with his space analysis and photos.  http://www.hankboughtabus.com/a-tour-of-the-bus/
