This family of five downsized from a 6 acre homestead in Minnesota to full-time living in a 40 ft. bus conversion, and they couldn’t be happier with their pared down lifestyle.

The coolest part of this bus? The back 7 ft have been dedicated to the wife/mom’s mobile salon! She has her mobile license and they built the space to proper codes so she can do hair on the road. Pretty amazing.

Their three kids, ages 9, 8 and 5 have always homeschooled and love their bunk “bedrooms” and tiny lifestyle. Check out the video tour from Tiny House Giant Journey below!

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.
