Alright y’all, last price drop before I take this off the market to finish the build before relisting for a higher price. 4.5K off the starting price after receiving feedback from some potential buyers, and I will be fixing the counter, the door, and coolant leak before it’s ready for pickup. The rest of the list of remaining projects will be up to the buyer.
If you have ever wanted to own a skoolie/coffee shop and home but didn’t want to build it out yourself, today is your lucky day! This 1996 Internation T444E Mid-Size (29ft) school bus has been ~90% converted into a functional coffee shop, and I am selling the entire thing. The only thing it lacks is a few small projects, listed below as well. It is 100% off-grid as long as you have water in the tanks, allowing you to sell coffee in the city or on the trailhead. It has a modest living space in the back which features a bathroom and kitchen prep area. This beast’s big ticket items are as follows:
- 600W solar panels to 600aH AGM batteries
- Fracino Retro 2 Group Dual Fuel Espresso Machine (w/ all espresso equipment like tamper, scale, etc.)
- Dometic CFX 95DZW Fridge
- Eureka Mignon Espresso Grinder
- Bunn Commercial 2 Carafe Drip Brewer
- Bulk Coffee Grinder for Drip Coffee
- Separate Hand and Triple Sinks
- Nature’s Head compost toilet
- Renogy 2000W Inverter
- Diesel Heater
- BWT Coffee Water Filtration system
- 100 Pound propane tank w/ inside cutoff switch
- Northwoods Fabrication wood burning stove
- Custom rear deck with 15A Plug for generator
- Custom cherry wood butcher block countertops
- Full Size Murphy Bed
- Propane endless hot water heater
- 95 gallons of fresh water/113 gallons of grey water
- Total Value of Above Items New: ~$14,000
I am also including everything from when I closed up shop, which includes: 12oz. hot cups w/ lids, 16oz. cold cups, trash bags, towels, a few bottles of Monin syrup, all the paint used on the bus, a cash drawer, and drink carriers.
Projects left to be completed are: plumbing the drains from the sinks, painting the shop ceiling and bedroom walls, painting the black runners on the side of the bus, Tropi-cool the other half of the roof, front door lock (I still have the original door if you wanted to make your own door from those), mounting the commercial drip coffee maker, patching a crack in the countertop, fixing a coolant leak, and attaching trim to a few places in the bus.
I do hope someone on this site can get as much use and memories out of it as I have. I’m on to the next build (pictured in last photo). Thanks for looking!
