High school sweethearts Zak and Diane are the proud owners of the Melody Machine, their DIY bus conversion they spent 2.5 years on. The couple make music and travel in their awesome home on wheels.
A few defining features of their bus are the huge roof-top deck, a guitar amp key holder, and awesome chalkboard walls. They even have granite countertops in their bus — wow!
This lifestyle really suits them, and you can get all the details from their interview with Tiny Home Tours below. You can also follow the couple on Instagram here.

Are you using Galvanized stove pipe or stainless steel?
Did you know that galvanize gives off toxic fumes when heated?
It actually depends on how hot it gets, as long as it doesn’t exceed 392 F (200 C) then it won’t give off toxic fumes. While the key element zinc is only toxic in high doses but is not a issue at low doses and is even vital for your biological health. There’s just a lot in nature that just requires proper balance…
Chimney pipes for efficiency and being able to use them in tight spaces are typically double walled, or even triple walled, the outer layer may be galvanized but the inner layer that actually deals with the heat is stainless steel.
Add, the cubic mini is a very small wood stove that doesn’t get as hot as larger stoves. So it should be pretty safe…
They will just have to be careful when they add copper pipping to it, which is a future upgrade that plan for it to be able to help heat house water, to avoid galvanized corrosion that could become a long term maintenance issue.
It is cute and bright and made just right! I love buses and this one is really pretty and liveable. Great job! Love the outside decorations with lights. Safe travels. . .
