Rakel and Sigurd were teachers with a big house, but they wanted something more! So they decided to make a huge lifestyle shift and purchase a van to convert into their home.

The van has a beautiful nature and floral aesthetic, with spring green cabinets, faux plants, and leaf patterns. They have a fixed bed, micro kitchen with two burners and a sink, and an adorable Cubic Mini wood stove. How lovely!

Scott and Susan Burbank are a retired couple who decided to build their own Freightliner motorhome because, at 6’8″ tall, Scott simply couldn’t be comfortable in most standardized motorhomes. So they acquired a retired semi-truck and spent 14 months converting it into their dream home on wheels.

The truck was originally just an empty shell with cables everywhere since it used to be a mobile computer lab owned by Microsoft. But Scott and Susan worked diligently, spending 10-hour days, 6 days a week, to turn it into the beautiful custom home it is today. They even invented a 5-foot murphy bed-style shower to save space!

The road to van life hasn’t been easy for this couple. It all started when Daphne outfitted a van for herself and left Matt in New York, so she could go travel. After he spent some time visiting her in the van, he wanted to join her full-time. But, Daphne’s van was totaled in a car crash right after Matt sold his house.

Both homeless, the couple decided to build out a second van and travel together. A professional musician, Daphne performs and teaches remote flute lessons. Matt does freelance drafting for roofing companies. They strayed from the norm in the van world and chose wallpaper rather than shiplap for their walls. Pretty awesome!

James and Doreen had a 4,000-square-foot home, but the upkeep was just becoming overwhelming. So they decided to get a skoolie! Now they can visit their 4 kids (who all live in different places) and spend their springtime boating in Louisiana.

Their bus is unlike any we’ve seen before, with a full-size commercial kitchen (including THREE sinks), a table near the front window, and stucco walls on the inside of the bus. They chose not to have a hallway, and instead have a spacious bathroom. What do you think?

Sawyer was going for a run when he had a sudden heart attack. Thankfully, some firefighters found Sawyer and immediately got him the help he needed. That experience was the catalyst that sent him and Courtney on tiny living journey. They watched Craigslist for a while until an inexpensive, local box truck popped up.

They took their time sourcing free and inexpensive items for their build-out and the results are amazing! For just $14k, they have a fully-functional home including a wet bath and elevator bed that allows them to have a bedroom and living room all in one cozy spot. What do you think?

The Saudes were tired of their city lifestyle and ready to get out to the country, where they would have outdoor space for a garden. So they decided to build their own tiny house on wheels! The main accent color for the home (tiles, cabinets, and exterior paint) is a brilliant teal-blue color.

They have a fireplace with a built-in bookshelf, a spot for a keyboard, a spacious 5-foot shower stall, and both a pollinator and food garden right outside their door! What do you think of their design? The couple now designs and builds tiny homes as a business, and a replica of their “Duchess” is for sale.
