Chris and Jolene have three preteen boys, and the family used to do the typical suburban rat race of tons of sports and activities, work 9 to 5, and a zombie-like existence trying to afford a 3,000 square foot cookie-cutter home.

Then, about two years ago, Chris sold his company and the family searched for the perfect boat to begin their life on the water. Now they enjoy travelling to islands in the Caribbean, “boatschooling,” and experiencing all the chaos and wonders of boat life!

Jolene shared some wonderful reflections on why they went tiny in our Q&A with her, so be sure to read more below and take the video tour of their houseboat. You can follow the family on Instagram here.

Caleb is a web developer and he and his wife, Hannah, and their three-year-old are traveling around in their amazing Chevy Short Bus conversion. The sleek interior looks ultra-modern, and now Caleb is helping others build out their own buses. How cool.

Because of his job, he has tons of solar power and battery banks to make sure they rarely run out of juice. The bus also includes a bathroom with two shower heads, so they never *have* to go outside or at a campground.

Best of all, their son Phoenix is getting all the amazing experiences that Caleb never had as a kid. Check out the full video tour with Tiny Home Tours below!

Five years ago, Chelsea and Diego hardly saw each other because of Diego’s work schedule. That’s when they decided to go tiny and purchased a new RV so Chelsea and the kids could follow Diego wherever he’s working as a pipeline welder.

The couple just welcomed their fourth child a couple months ago, and they all love RV life even if it requires some sacrifice of personal space. Two years into living in the RV they decided to start making renovations, and now every part of their home is as functional as it is beautiful!

You’ll love seeing the interior, but make sure to take time to read the Q&A with Chelsea below the photo tour! And follow the family on Instagram here.

Shane and Allison were no strangers to tiny living when they decided to renovate a bus — they had spent four years as traveling musicians in an RV, but when they started seeing skoolies on Instagram, they had to have one!

“Honestly, it’s way cooler [than an RV]” Shane says. They outfitted the interior without any experience and on a budget, complete with pallet cabinet doors and a tub from the farm supply store. Their toddler (& now newborn) and nanny travel with them all over the country.

You’ll love this fun couple and their awesome bus! Watch the full tour from Tiny Home Tours below. You can follow the family on Instagram here.

Sometimes we make plans and life has other plans! That’s what happened to this family of four who built their dream tiny home and moved in a couple of months ago. Husband Brendan just found out his job is moving him cross-country away from extended family. They have baby #3 on the way and have decided to sell their luxury tiny house so they can purchase a spot with a guest room for family visitors.

Their nearly-brand-new tiny house is 36 feet long, and for sale in Feura Bush, New York. It features the coveted downstairs bedroom and a super fun kids’ loft complete with a netting hammock! The home has every luxury, including a dishwasher and a washer/dryer unit — and a bathtub for soaking and bathing littles.

We got to interview Rachel about their two months of tiny living and decision to move below. Check it out!

Deb and Pete wanted to get rid of their mortgage and move closer to Pete’s parents while his mother was fighting cancer. After losing her battle, Deb and Pete have been able to be right next door to Pete’s dad and support him through the difficult aftermath — all while living debt-free now that they’ve sold their traditional home.

The tiny house they have now is gorgeous, and the coolest feature has to be the large deck that pretty much doubles their living space in nice weather. Inside the French doors you’ll find their living space with a big L-shaped couch, and then storage stairs that take you into the loft bedrooms. Their daughter has her own bedroom in the very back, with an itty-bitty door to give her a quiet, private spot.

And just wait until you see the kitchen! It’s bigger than many kitchens in “normal” homes. You can enjoy the full tour with Bryce Langston below.
