These fraternity brothers weren’t interested in doing another year of online college, so they decided to convert a 1999 Thomas 3800 DT466E school bus and hit the road instead.

They had a tight budget of $10K, including the cost of the bus itself. Amazingly, they managed to stay pretty close to budget and were still able to raise the roof and add a shower and wood stove, and everything else they wanted.

Right now the guys are living off of their savings and see what the U.S. has to offer before jobs tie them down. Enjoy their video tour below.

This is Jax Austin’s amazing school bus home — and it’s his second build-out! He has been on the road for about 5 years now, including during the pandemic and through a year+ of cancer treatments.

On top of his skoolie sits a party deck complete with a golfing green. Inside he has gorgeous live-edge countertops that “waterfall,” and his bathroom includes a prototype composting toilet from a friend.

Jax’s interview is inviting and informative, and he has plenty of advice for what works and what doesn’t in a school bus. Enjoy the Tiny House Giant Journey tour below!

When Paul was in high school, he and his dad gutted a school bus to use it for transport. It was then that the skoolie seed was planted and Paul dreamed for years of getting his own rig.

After an “unhealthy” amount of research, Paul and Audrey finally found and bought a bus and started the renovation process. It took time to complete, but now it’s been their home for about a year, and it’s lovely!

Enjoy the video tour with Tiny Home Tours below, and be sure to keep up with the couple’s blog!

Audrey and Paul bought their bus back in 2018 and spent 20 months making it into their amazing bus home. They spend half of what they used to in bills and utilities by living in their bus rather than a standard apartment and the best part? It’s all theirs, made exactly how they wanted it!

A former Marine, Paul is now a full-time student while Audrey works a number of mobile/remote jobs such as teaching yoga. They enjoyed a couple of months of traveling before settling down in an RV park near Paul’s school. The home has a cozy farmhouse chic vibe, and they built it out without any former experience in construction!

We got the chance to interview the couple, so be sure to check out the Q&A after the photo tour. Oh, and follow them on Instagram here.
