Scott started working on the bus in October 2021 and has spent every other week working there. He finished it in early August.
Scott estimates he spent around $25,000 on the entire project, including the $8,000 to buy the bus.
The bus now sits in Scott’s backyard, and he rents it on Airbnb for the past two months. Prices range from $75 to $145 per night, depending on the season.
A guest who stayed in August said the place was “an absolute dream”.
“You can tell a lot of love went into making this bus a home. We were a short drive to downtown Portland and other places we wanted to visit,” another guest wrote. who stayed on the bus in September.
Scott named the bus “The Royal Scott” – a nod to her full name, which is Whitney Royal Scott, and a former British railway line.
“I have a friend who collects British railway memorabilia, and she told me about an old railway in London, Midland and Scotland known as ‘The Royal Scot’, but with a single ‘T,'” Scott said.
