This couple bought a homemade toy hauler and turned it into a tiny house/camper with adorable 1950s vintage flair.

The before & after is truly impressive. From rusty and dingy to quaint and cozy. Enjoy the photos below.

Emily fell in love with tiny homes after reading a book by Deek Diedricksen, but it took going to a tiny house festival with her husband, Dan, to get him on board. After that, they spent a week camping to see if they could do it, and decided tiny living was for them!

That’s when they built out their amazing 50 square foot vardo, which holds absolutely everything the couple owns. It includes a composting toilet (made from her old hope chest!), an induction cooktop, and a residential ac to keep things comfortable.

This is such a lovely couple, which you’ll see from the video from Tiny Home Tours.

Jon is a PC-gamer in law school and Christina is finishing up her Master’s degree. After a three-year long-distance relationship, Christina sold her 1200 square foot fixer-upper in North Carolina and moved down to Florida to live with Jon. She’d been a fan of tiny homes for a long time, and it seemed like a great chance for the couple to save money and pay down student loans.

They’re lucky enough to park on Jon’s parent’s land, and they used SIPs (structurally insulated panels) to create the frame and roof of the home. As such, all their walls are magnetic, which is kind of neat!

The home is 32’ long, 8.5’ wide, 13.5’ tall, and has two lofts — a Master loft with stair access, and then a craft/reading loft with a really neat sliding DIY ladder. Tiny Home Tours did a great video tour of the place which can watch below!

Bob has always loved buses since he was 8 years old, in particular, Gillig school buses. He’s driven some 350 buses in his life, and now he’s living in his 1977 Gillig that he DIY-ed into a tiny house complete with a full recording studio with toilet vocal booth.

Retired from the schooner industry, he used his boat-building know-how to create a stunning home with self-planed locust wood. He wants to use his later years to enjoy traveling the US and seeing what he didn’t while “having careers” and “raising a family.” Too cool!

Enjoy the video tour from Tiny Home Tours below. Love this build!

Five years ago, Chelsea and Diego hardly saw each other because of Diego’s work schedule. That’s when they decided to go tiny and purchased a new RV so Chelsea and the kids could follow Diego wherever he’s working as a pipeline welder.

The couple just welcomed their fourth child a couple months ago, and they all love RV life even if it requires some sacrifice of personal space. Two years into living in the RV they decided to start making renovations, and now every part of their home is as functional as it is beautiful!

You’ll love seeing the interior, but make sure to take time to read the Q&A with Chelsea below the photo tour! And follow the family on Instagram here.

We recently received an email from reader Gregory all about EconOdome Home Kits. He plans on using his second stimulus check to pay down on some land where he can eventually build one of these awesome hurricane-resistant homes.

There are a lot of size and pricing options available on the website. For example, their higher-quality, fully-insulated 26-foot Econodome costs about $18,000 total, while their very basic 13′ model (sans insulation) comes in at only $1,300! All the options make it easy to buy a kit that fits within your budget and expertise.

You can learn a lot more about Econodomes and why to build them on their website here. I could spent a few hours on the site with all the research and options available! Check out some photos of just what you can do with their kits below…

This is Jana, and she and her cat, Louis, are travelling the country in her DIY converted ambulance, dubbed the “Janbulance.”

After living on St. Thomas island for 7 years as a teacher and aerial yoga instructor, she worked five jobs to save up and then asked for a year off from work, bought an ambulance on Ebay, and transformed it into her home! Amazing, Jana!

Her home on wheels includes a gorgeous shower stall, a hidden potty, and two marble-esque epoxy countertops she DIYed. Keep an eye out for her Pepsi-crate drawers. Watch her video interview with Tiny Home Tours below to hear all her tips on travelling as a solo female. Follow her on Instagram here.

This family of three travels in their DIY mini bus conversion, “Fern 2” — a near-duplicate of the couple’s first bus conversion named Fern. Fern 2 became home after Mande and Ben added son Sawyer to the family.

The tiny bus includes a portable toilet in the closet area, and an outdoor shower set-up you’re sure to envy. The inside of the bus is absolutely impeccable, with bright colors and clean lines that make it feel much larger than it really is. Instead of building in a bed for Sawyer, they found a small pack and play to set up which they can take down as needed. Brilliant!

Tiny Home Tours did a great interview with the couple (Mande is a school teacher and Ben fixes boats) which you can watch below! Follow them on Instagram here.
