Anna and Devin made DIYed this amazing minimalist off-roading rig and even added a raised roof! Anna did most of the interior carpentry while Devin worked full-time, and while she calls it “wonky,” she really did an excellent job.
The vehicle was once a government rig, which means it had some special features. Their blacked out back windows and huge tires help them go anywhere and enjoy the views. Their biggest splurge? A Dometic fridge. Most unique feature? They insulated it with Alpaca wool from a local farm.
Tim Gibson is on a mission to paint 10,000 flowers in murals all across the United States — the idea is that it would be one giant floral mural in small sections everywhere in the country, connecting communities with the beauty of art.
To get to all these towns, Tim takes his bus conversion home. He stores paint and supplies under his bed, he has a flip-down outdoor table and a long table inside. While he doesn’t have an electrical set-up yet, that’s next on his list! His biggest challenge? Stealth parking in a flower-covered rig!
At first, this couple was planning on finding some land without an HOA so they could have a tiny house near their home base in Colorado, but after learning about skoolies everything changed! They almost immediately purchased their 40 Ft. International bus and started renovating it to create an awesome home on wheels.
They made sure not to have any debt before taking on bus life, and it has allowed them awesome financial freedom. The couple got in touch with us to do a Q&A which you can read below their photo tour.
Iris lived as a digital nomad when her job when virtual, and then decided to fulfill her long-time tiny living dreams (she used to be hooked on the HGTV shows) by purchasing a Casa de Canto Park Model in a tiny house village in Austin, Texas.
While this 399 sq. ft. model does have a downstairs bedroom, she uses it as her office space and sleeps upstairs in the loft, which she thinks is super cozy! Her large living room features a cozy stove and her vast book collection, including a “Murphy” table that drops down for mealtime.
Yesterday was the first time I had ever seen a trullo house and I had to share it! These have been around since the 14th century, so there’s a good chance you are already familiar with trulli (the pural), but their design and construction is so fascinating and relatively tiny.
Popular in the Italian countryside, these buildings have no mortar! They are simply made by brilliantly stacking limestone and topping it with a special capstone. There are a number of myths surrounding why Italians chose this design, but ultimately it looks like it a was a decent way to use the local materials to create a strong structure.
While they keep wonderfully cool in hot weather, they are notoriously challenging to heat, and don’t have many windows. Still, there are many you can vacation in if you ever make it to Italy. Check this one out here.
David and his wife worked on renovating the kitchen in this Kilifi round cottage so that his mother-in-law can live here in her retirement. The beautiful cottage has panoramic coastal views and plenty of outdoor space to enjoy. The name “Ula” is the Celtic word for “seashell.”
The cottage is about 40 feet in diameter and two floors. There are two bedrooms upstairs, and a tennis court and garden space outdoors. Enjoy the pictures he sent!
Dottie had spent 13 years living in New York City and working as a burlesque dancer, showgirl, personal trainer, and bartender. The pandemic put her out of work and eventually she left the city and moved back home. Her mom and stepdad have actually been living the RV life for a while, so it runs in her blood!
She ended up buying and fixing up her awesome van that even has space for her sewing machine and burlesque costumes in the garage! She has a cassette toilet, a Dometic fridge, an altar, and an outdoor shower. Enjoy the tour below.
A couple of weeks ago we showed you David’s awesome garage transformation in France, but that was far from his first tiny project. He built this awesome tiny house on wheels in Kenya, where he and his wife live while she was researching for a book on African myths.
His design is remarkable, with “two-floor” design that allows standing space in the loft as well as plenty of space on the ground level. Enjoy the photos below and read David’s story after the photo tour.
I don’t know that I’ve ever heard of a vanlife couple who spent as much time and forethought regarding making the move into a vehicle! They spent a full year plotting and planning and discussing all the things that could go wrong in order to prepare themselves. Now that they’ve been living tiny for over a year, they consider their van a “sanctuary” no matter where they go!
The result? An awesome van that perfectly suits their stealthy needs — Becky can take the van to work as a travel nurse and park at the hospital, and Drew works from the van (or a co-working space) as a digital nomad. Their bed design is a brilliant middle ground between “take it all apart” and permanent.
