Emma and Luke said goodbye to their city lifestyle in Toronto, bought a 1979 Chevy Van and made it into an amazing home on wheels they’ve used to explore Nova Scotia, the East Coast of the USA, Mexico and now the West of Vancouver.

The van (named Brier) had a lot of water damage and rust and had to be stripped bare and rebuilt. It took the couple about 6 months from purchasing the vehicle to moving in full-time. But it was worth it: Emma says they love the freedom that vanlife affords them.

You can read our interview with the couple at the end of the post and see Emma’s awesome video tour of their little home.

Whether van dwelling and bus conversions are your thing or not I think you’ll still enjoy looking at Ryan Lovelace’s DIY 1948 Chevy bus to tiny home conversion.

He took this old funky bus and made it into a mobile micro home and you can see all of his personal touches inside.

With a tiny kitchen, a sleeping loft/pod and a small wood burning fireplace this is totally ready for full time simple living.

There are so many windows that bring in the natural sunlight and it looks like he even added an indoor gutter to hold various plants inside. Very creative.

Let’s take a look inside, shall we?
