Ethan and Kim are the proud owners of this fantastic bus conversion, complete with a separate fridge just for their craft beer selection. Priorities. 🙂
The couple have two Great Danes and have a hard time finding apartments that will allow their large fur babies, so getting a bus allowed the couple a permanent home — and a way to travel — while keeping their dogs with them.
Because they spent more than a year on the build, they were able to scour Craigslist and Marketplace for nearly everything in their bus, which kept the cost for this gorgeous conversion at just $20,000! And this looks like a $100,000 bus. Tiny Home Tours did a great interview which you can watch below.
While a professionally-built tiny house is often the dream, it can come with a pretty hefty price tag. Cheeky Monkey is trying to make tiny homes more financially accessible by selling plans, shells, and trailers so you can DIY a tiny house.
You can purchase plans for their Jude and Strawberry tiny homes, and they also sell 18/24/28-foot trailers. Finally, their Blackbird and Jude shells are also available to purchase on their website.
Additionally, they are trying to help connect homeowners/landowners with tiny home dwellers looking for a spot to park. They’ve created a webpage where people with land and those looking for it can connect here.
There is a new tiny house floor plans book now available by Michael Janzen with hundreds of new designs and I was just able to get my hands on one of the first digital copies of the book, and so far I’m really impressed! There are over 350 new floor plans all designs for tiny homes on wheels from 12-ft. to 36-ft. lengths.
To celebrate Michael’s new book, I’m giving away a signed copy of his other book from 2017, 101 Tiny House Designs. All you have to do to be eligible to win the book is 1) leave a comment at the bottom of this post stating what size tiny house you want or have (12-ft, 16-ft, 20-ft, 36-ft, etc.) and 2) re-share this post on your Twitter and/or Facebook or via email to a friend (just CC us [email protected] and tag us on social media @tinyhousetalk). From there, I’ll pick a random winner within 30 days and reach out to you on where to ship the signed book. 🙂
While we see a lot of positive things about vanlife here at Tiny House Talk, it was refreshing to hear some raw truth from vanlifer, Rania, who hit the road with her dog Sequoia in “Egg,” their Transit van conversion.
She didn’t enjoy those first weeks of vanlife. She was scared and felt like she’d made a huge mistake — being on her own and in such a small space felt claustrophobic. But her story has a happy ending. After sticking it out and learning how to make her van space work for her, she has spent a year in her van successfully!
Wait until you see her van’s sleek black interior with fun vintage pops of color. Thanks Tiny Home Tours for the interview!
