Family of 4 in 250 Square Foot Bus

This post contains affiliate links.

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.

    Two part time incomes seem to be all they need – will kids be home schooled? Are they able to do maintenance on the bus themselves? What is heat source, is there AC? Wonderful way to keep your family safe during covid time

    I admire their efforts to think outside of the box and provide for their family. Beautiful.

    I am a 62 year old great-grandmother and I have to admit that the first thing I noticed was the wheels also 😅. I love their spirit. Many would have just stayed in place and been miserable but they made life better for themselves and their children. Kudos to you!
