Family of 4 Sold It All To Live in a Bus!


Abe and Micah bought a house in California and flipped it (it was “a dump” according to them) into exactly what they wanted. But then they realized they loved traveling — not being tied to one location — so they sold the house and reinvested some of the money into their raised-roof skoolie home.

They downsized from 2,000 to 200 square feet with their two young boys, and just wait until you see their gorgeous bus! It feels truly homey with a brick backsplash, faux leather couches, and custom bunks for the boys with sliding doors.

Enjoy the video tour and interview from Tiny Home Tours below, and follow the family on Instagram here.

The table on the left folds down when not needed.

Those butcher block counter tops look stunning.

The bedroom has two large windows.

Oh the places they’ll go!

    Well done, parents! Your boys will have an education superior to most, and all of you will have tender memories about the time spent together.

    I love the interior and the selections you have made. Such a splendid project and way of life. You have many futures ahead of you with the talents you have. Enjoy the life you chose, and continue to be an inspiration to others. Brenda

    This Skoolie they’ve created is absolutely perfect! I think this couple nailed every aspect of this build, especially the bunk beds for their boys. I love the design and layout so much, I’d move into this beautiful home in a heartbeat! Well done!!!
