Andy and Amber from Bus Life NZ built this stunning DIY off grid bus conversion to live and travel full-time in New Zealand with their two young kids.

By reducing their expenses and moving onto a bus, they were able to quit both of their jobs and develop a few revenue streams to support their lifestyle, including a YouTube channel and a Patreon page.

One of the reasons they decided to hit the road as a family was because the 9-5 grind was too stressful, and the cost of living in Auckland was very high. They were paying approximately $3,000 NZD on rent each month.
