It’s not often that a bus build is an upsize in housing, but that’s the case for Sam, a traveling artist who put away his backpack to create this gorgeous bus home for about $10K and a lot of reclaimed materials. Sam had spent 5 months hiking the Pacific Crest Trail when he decided it was time to have a home.

He funds his travels by creating art from reclaimed materials and other small bits others would simply throw away. Wire trees are his specialty. He has a Murphy bed, excellent closet space with custom doors, and a slide-out pantry inside the bus. What feature is your favorite?

Wess had the travel bug as a young adult but chose parenthood first. When his boys were getting older, he decided to think about tiny living/travel again and that’s when he stumbled across the school bus that he bought to turn into a house (before they were really Instagram-popular). As a metalworker, he had the skills necessary to build a school bus just how he wanted — and he did!

He spent three years on the road traveling in his conversion before settling in Witchita where he does metalwork for other people’s rigs. His home includes an awesome collection of found-item artwork, a mosaic tub, and tons of beautiful woodworking. Enjoy the tour!

Tim Gibson is on a mission to paint 10,000 flowers in murals all across the United States — the idea is that it would be one giant floral mural in small sections everywhere in the country, connecting communities with the beauty of art.

To get to all these towns, Tim takes his bus conversion home. He stores paint and supplies under his bed, he has a flip-down outdoor table and a long table inside. While he doesn’t have an electrical set-up yet, that’s next on his list! His biggest challenge? Stealth parking in a flower-covered rig!

If you’ve watched any of the Tiny Home Tours videos we post here, you are probably familiar with Brad’s work. He is a regular videographer for their YouTube Channel, but that’s not all! He’s an amazing photographer and sells his prints and works some commercial gigs as well.

This isn’t his first rodeo with tiny living, but this latest rig has been his for a couple months. He formerly traveled the whole country looking for work and getting discovered. He made his rig super functional, with a spacious kitchen, hidden Nature’s Head toilet, and tons of amazing garage space for his RAD bike.

Erika traveled all over the world with just a backpack, so living tiny was nothing new to her when she met her now-husband Matt. After living in Barbados together and getting pregnant, they had to decide how to travel and still give their daughter stability.

The bus pretty much fell into their laps, and they made it a fantastic home! The shower stall on the bus stairway is possibly the most innovative shower location I’ve seen so far. And guess what? The bus is for sale.

But fear not! They are building out another bus, this one better-set-up for their growing family. If you want to purchase their original skoolie (asking $72,000) you can contact them via their Instagram page here.

Jordan and Steve seem like a couple I would love hanging out with! They are incredibly-friendly backpackers who are enjoying life in their totally-off-grid skoolie rig with a raised roof.

I’ve never seen a bus conversion with the bathroom up front, but they make it work wonderfully by adding a full “fourth wall” to their bus between the cab and the living area. The rest of the bus is completely open, with a huge kitchen, stunning stone fireplace/woodstove and their bedroom.

Enjoy the video tour and interview with Tiny Home Tours below, and follow the couple on Instagram here.

Originally Mark wanted to build a tiny house on wheels, but when talking to his brother he realized that a standard THOW would be hard to travel with so he chose his short bus instead!

With the bus, he’s been able to go to so many places and get amazing experiences. He’s even more of an inspiration because he doesn’t consider himself handy at all! “I measure 3 times and cut 4 then head back to the store and pick up more supplies.” Who can relate?

Enjoy the video tour from Tiny Home Tours below to see his whole rainforest bus.

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!
