Musicians & Kids: 5 Years in their Bus

This post contains affiliate links.

Shane & Emily of Arbour Season have been on the road now for many years, five of those with kids in tow! They built their own DIY skoolie with pallet wood cabinets, a galvanized tub from the feed store, and a big two-basin sink to make it easier to wash and dry dishes.

The bus has a long kitchen countertop across from their built-in couch, a dinette, and then a bunk room for their kids and live-in nanny. In the back of the bus, they have their bedroom and lots of closet storage space. What do you think of their home on wheels?
