It all started when Mike and Kerry’s neighbor called up wanting the old car in their front yard. Mike joked he’d trade it for the neighbor’s bus, and within hours the neighbor showed up driving the bus! The project started and the couple eventually decided to hit the road.

They were honest about the costs — while they set out to spend only $15K, in order to make the bus into a home they really loved, they ended up spending $60K! But, Kerry says their skoolie is specially designed to make her life battling with childhood PTSD easier, and that’s priceless.

The mosaic tile shower she made from dinner plates is definitely the coolest shower I’ve seen to date! And just wait to see the Dutch door.

When it comes to living tiny, you *have* to get creative. I have seen hidden toilets tucked into all kinds of spaces in buses and vans, but this is the first time I’ve seen one pull out from under a mini wood stove!

This is Akram and Shawna’s second bus build and it features pallet wood cabinets, a pull-out pantry, black walnut live-edge counter top and tons of awesome vintage features. It took the couple 8 months to build out, and cost between $30-$35K, including the cost of their short bus.

Tell us what you think!

The terrifying risk when you have a home on wheels is that at some point you could end up crashing your entire house — and that’s exactly what happened to Lauren and Patrick when their trailer gave way on its journey to their new “forever” piece of land.

They had spent months building out their Tumbleweed trailer and then had taken it around the country traveling. But when they purchased land so they could settle down, they lost their tiny house to the twisty roads. After some time and a good cry, they managed to salvage what they could and rebuilt the tiny house better than ever!

Now it sits connected to another smaller “mini house” by a huge 20×20 deck, and they’re loving their tiny life. The video below is worth the watch!

Brittani & Adam got married and then though it was time to settle down and do the “adult” thing of holding full-time jobs and renting an apartment, saving for a house. But on their honeymoon they discussed their dreams of jumping into vanlife.

It took three years, but they eventually chased that dream, selling everything and hopping into Clifford (their big red van!). They travel along with Levi, an adorable Aussie pup.

They are such a sweet couple! Enjoy their video tour with Tiny House Giant Journey below.

Greg and Ginger were maxing out on their vacation time every year, just waiting for their next adventure. Finally one day they decided they wanted to travel full-time! They purchased their ambulance sight-unseen while quarantined in Mexico, and then got to work doing a full 4×4 conversion.

They really figured out how to utilize every square inch of space in their build-out. Just wait until you see their hidden drying rack and storage compartment for dishes. Brilliant! They have a shower and toilet as well, and their electric bed slides out when it’s time to sleep or watch a movie.

All in all, they spent $59,000 on the ambulance and build-out. Enjoy Jenna’s tour of it below!

They’re a young couple who moved to the United States from Germany and have been living as a young family with a baby in this customized tiny home. For example, they built a really clever floating wardrobe that I think you will like! Check it out below! This story is based on this video from the Tiny House Expedition YouTube Channel.
