This is the story of a family of four (soon to be five) plus their pup who are living in a DIY school bus conversion that they call the Bussalo!

You can follow them on Instagram @theheymoonclub. Here’s what they have to say about living tiny, in a bus, as a family.

When I tell people we are living in a bus I sometimes get the response, “I would go crazy being in a small bus with my kids all day!” So would we! That’s the best part! We designed everything with being outside in mind. Our biggest draw to bus life aside from travel was that our confined living spaces would encourage us to be outside more, enjoying nature. So although I expect to have many great memories in the bus, the real goal is to make a ton of great memories outside of it!

Sylvie bought a tiny house to have a permanent, full-time home for her and her teenage daughter.

Living tiny gives her more financial freedom. Her house will be paid for in 10 years, and she already has more flexibility to travel and spend time doing what she loves.

She also hopes that her new minimalist lifestyle will allow her to help save money for her daughter’s studies when the time comes.

After finishing school, Jocelyn and Jarvis had $96,000 of debt from student loans, credit cards, and buying a small rural property.

They made some big changes to their lifestyle – using cash instead of credit, buying nothing new, and moving to a smaller apartment – and they were able to pay off their entire debt in 20 months.

After getting out of debt, they had the option to buy a conventional home but they didn’t want a mortgage, even though a mortgage isn’t necessarily a bad debt to have. Instead, they saved up some money and built themselves a tiny house, starting with a trailer that had already been framed by someone else.

This is the story of a son who designed and built a tiny house on wheels for his mom. It has about 300 sq. ft. of space.

What an awesome and inspiring story, right? His name is Matt Thorne. His mom has been living in the tiny house for well over 6 months now and she loves it!

Now Matt is looking to build one for a customer. He’s also looking for the right person to partner with to build another one as a vacation rental unit.

Just because you’re having a baby doesn’t mean you’ve outgrown your tiny house!

Look at Robert and Samantha, of Shedsistence, who built the perfect bedside baby crib (now version two) in their loft.

Since having their baby Robert and Samantha have made changes to their loft, added a safety barrier, and have a crib downstairs so they can still live tiny even with their baby!
