Bus conversions are such a great reflection of their owner’s and their priorities. That couldn’t be more true with Luke’s 2003 Ford E450 school bus conversion. While some might prefer running hot water, this digital nomad made sure to have space and charge for all his electronics and instruments.

He does have an RV toilet in the bus connected to a black water tank, but he uses baby wipes to keep clean when he can’t get to a public shower. The exterior of his bus has a fantastic hand-painted mural he did himself. He also has a cozy bed cave inside with lots of pillows!

Watch the full interview from Tiny Home Tours below, and follow Luke on Instagram.

Once again, here’s a family with small kids taking advantage of the skoolie lifestyle! The Stone family is homeschooling in their DIY rig, called the “Green Bean,” which they spent about $15,000 making into their home on wheels.

The couple did all the work themselves, saving a lot of money in the process. They’ve been on the road for a couple months now, chasing the coastline and searching for warmer weather. Because the home is off-grid, their month-to-month expenses really only include the cost of fuel and the occasional campsite (they boondock most of the time).

Their girls, Pepper and Violet, have awesome bunks near the back of the bus with climbing stones, and plenty of room for toys under their dinette. Watch the full tour from Tiny Home Tours below!

Justin grew up road-tripping with his family as a kid, and wanted to keep that tradition alive as a young adult. So he bought a school bus and created a custom party bus, complete with a one-of-a-kind bar so he can mix drinks (when parked, of course — don’t drink and drive!).

He doesn’t live in his rig full-time, so he created it with space for friends to sleep and congregate so he could travel with a group and have a good place to hang out. Inside the bus he can sleep three, and you can even pitch a tent on the roof-top deck! He chose the bar over a bathroom, and says so far he has no regrets (#priorities).

I love his innovative design for a passenger seat, and his honesty in his Tiny Home Tours interview about the real costs of keeping an older bus running. Including the bus cost itself, he’s spent $12,000 to date. Enjoy the tour below!

We’ve spent the entire year so far off grid, running our home completely on solar power. No neighbors, no rent, & no utility bills. Just beautiful desert sunsets, quite a lot of dirt, & the freedom to change the views outside our windows whenever we want

Meet Jessica Rambo, a Marine veteran who is helping other veterans with her traveling art studio (that doubles as her home!).

Her 501c3, the Painted Buffalo Traveling Studio, has a mission “to enhance the quality of life for members of the U.S. Armed Forces and their community by providing alternative tools in art and art making.”

She and her two children live on the bus together, along with her cat and dog! It’s an amazing work-in-progress that she has built herself. We got to do a Q&A with her about the studio and #buslife, so be sure to read it at the end of the post!
