This is Our Dharma Tribe: David, Melanie and little Alice (plus two pups!) living in an amazing DIY skoolie bus conversion.

The Canadian family moved into their bus home in September of 2016 and are now documenting their skoolie life on Facebook and Instagram. The 2000 Thomas Flat Nose bus boasts about 210 sq. ft. and a 5.9 Cummins motor, and cost them $4,000. They currently stay in Stony Plains, Alberta and have spent $10,000 on the remodel (they still need solar and water tanks to finish the home).

Enjoy the pictures and be sure to follow them on social media! Links to their profiles are below the pictures.

This a story of a family of 9 living in their bus conversion. So if you thought that only small families, couples, or even just singles could live tiny, think again.

Outside, you’ll notice this school bus has been painted red and white and bears the name “Good News.” This family of nine transformed the school bus into a cozy home for two parents and their seven young children.

When you go inside, you’ll find what looks a lot like an RV. They have a dinette where the kids can eat and play board games, a beautiful kitchen complete with an oven for mom to bake homemade bread (yes, she’s that amazing), and built in bunks for the kiddos to sleep in. The master bedroom is in the back of the bus and they have one bathroom for all the family’s needs. Open up the back hatch and you’ll find a washer/dryer, because as you can imagine, nine people come with a lot of laundry!

Please enjoy, learn more, and re-share below. Thank you!
