PORTSMOUTH, N.H. (AP) — When Chelsea Rogers and Tanner Starmer rode the yellow school bus as children, it likely never crossed their minds that more than two decades later, they’d be living in one. That’s right. Meet Eleanor, also known as “Ellie the Skoolie,” the 12-year-old 170-square-foot bus they’ve spent that last nine months gutting, reconstructing and renovating into their dream home on wheels.
