A decade ago Brandon did his first big road trip, and since then he’s been hoping to someday hit the road full time again. He was trying out a van for a bit when he stumbled across this bus for sale in the parking lot of a mechanic’s shop — and within 45 minutes he had purchased it!

Turns out he was the bus’ third owner, and he gives credit to the original owners (who built it out while living in Brooklyn, NY!) for much of the design. His whole rig even runs on a Tesla battery, which is pretty cool. Brandon says he has more than enough space for all his things, and is loving working as an engineer while traveling in his bus home.

Tiny Digs Hotel in Portland, Oregon is home to 12 different tiny home vacations, each with a different awesome theme. Their most recent addition, the “Rock n Roll” cottage, is like a time machine that takes you back to the 1950s.

There’s a little retro fridge, an Elvis-Presley-covered bathroom, and an old rotary phone. The attention to detail inside speaks to the owner’s own 1950s upbringing! Enjoy the tour below.

If you’re lucky enough to own some extra land somewhere, putting a tiny house there for personal family vacations is a great way to get a lower-cost vacation property! That’s what this Colorado couple did. They reached out to Rocky Mountain Tiny Houses to have an off-grid, low maintenance THOW built and delivered to their remote land outside of Durango.

The metal siding should hold up to the wind and snow, and they have multiple off-grid systems, and backup systems, to keep them warm no matter the weather. There’s a loft bedroom, 32″ shower stall, and composting toilet. The build came to about $65,000 without the solar array.

A traveling teacher was looking for a home she could tow with her wherever her job required, so she contacted Rocky Mountain Tiny Houses about building a gooseneck THOW out of metal SIPs (structurally insulated panels) that would be easier to tow than a stick-built tiny home.

The result is a fantastic  29-foot THOW, filled with tons of custom details including a downstairs bedroom, loft living area and lots of off-grid capabilities so she wouldn’t *need* to find hookups at campgrounds. Check out the photos and details below!

Gale wanted a beautiful spot to retire in, and there’s no doubt her tiny house is just that! She filled the home with oodles of plants, all of which she tenderly cares for. She even poured resin over local wildflowers to create a stunning counter top.

She has a loft bedroom for now, but made sure to have enough space downstairs for a bed should she ever tire of climbing up and down. Her closet — and more plants — are up in the second loft. Enjoy the video tour below!

Hugo and Kaori started dating and later discovered that both of them wanted to travel the United States — he wanted a van, and she wanted an RV. They compromised and bought a short bus that had been used as a party bus for a few years, complete with a ball pit and neon lights.

They had one last party in the bus before stripping it down and transforming it into their home. They have a huge desk that runs along one room for the couple to work their remote jobs, as well as a custom welded bed and a kitchen with plenty of space for cooking from scratch.
