Family of 7 And Their Skoolie Home with Loft Addition

This post contains affiliate links.

Anna and Jeff had enjoyed traveling and camping with their respective families growing up, and wanted to share that experience with their own kids. In October 2017 they took the plunge and purchased a bus and began the two-year-long conversion process. After being on the road for a couple of years (and expecting another child!), they decided to do an upgrade which included an incredible loft!

The loft acts as a bedroom for their two oldest kids and a game room. The other three children have bunks on the lower level and there’s a primary bedroom in the back of the rig for mom and dad. In order to feed everyone, they have a large kitchen with a giant farmhouse sink. What do you think of their set-up?

They did the bus in two phases as their family grew. In total, it cost about $50,000.

  • Bought the bus 3 weeks after their fourth child was born in Oct 2017
  • Spent $4K on the bus, $31K on the first phase and $15K on phase two
  • Each kid has a private bunk, with two up in the new loft
  • They have huge couches in the front, so everyone has a spot to hang out
  • There’s a dedicated office space for Dad to work remotely
