Chasing the “American Dream” required this family of four to spend some $1,200 a month for only 500 square feet — so they ditched the apartment life and renovated a bus instead! While they had to downsize to 250 square feet, they’re now in a much better position and will start travelling again once it’s safe to do so.
Inside their 38 foot home, they have an awesome l-shaped couch and mudroom area when you first walk in, followed by a huge kitchen with an extra extendable countertop and a nearly-full-sized fridge. At the back of the bus is their toilet, the kid’s bunks, and their Master bedroom.
Hannah teaches English online, while Luke runs a business creating handmade leather goods. Tiny Home Tours did a wonderful video tour and interview with the family, which you can check out below! Follow them on Instagram here.
