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!
Family of Four (Soon to be Five) Living in a DIY School Bus Conversion
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.
