There were 2 School Buses, an RV, a Travel Trailer and a bunch of tires on the property when we purchased it. These items are considered to have no value and come with the property. We do not know the history of these items.
There are several examples of re-purposing these items into a variety of uses. People have been converting school buses into tiny homes, they refer to them as "Skoolies". These converted school buses can generate rental income through sites like AirBNB (see photos).
The RV could also be converted to a tiny home or a variety of other uses. We found an article on how an old travel trailer was converted into a chicken coop.
Tires are often used to build retaining walls, including the walls of self-sustaining Earthship homes.
