Just about two years ago, Jake & Jenn decided they didn’t really know where they wanted to settle and put down permanent roots, and they hadn’t seen much of the rest of the US. So the couple started looking for the perfect bus to turn into their family’s tiny home!

Together with their two kids, they’ve gutted and transformed the bus into their new home (@scoutandaboutskoolie). While COVID has delayed their official departure, the home is just about complete! The coolest part? They took their time on the build so they could do it entirely debt-free! The bus itself was about $4,000, and they’ve put another $20,000 into it, including a full solar system that enables them to be off-grid.

We got to interview Jenn about the conversion and transitioning to tiny life, so be sure to check those out after the photo tour!

We’ve spent the entire year so far off grid, running our home completely on solar power. No neighbors, no rent, & no utility bills. Just beautiful desert sunsets, quite a lot of dirt, & the freedom to change the views outside our windows whenever we want

This adorable skoolie conversion is home to Kai, Julie and their cat Lilu. They’re parked in Germany now (Kai’s home base) but typically travel throughout Europe.

Kai (@wetravelbybus on Instagram) is a freelance filmmaker and photographer and jumped on the bus life bandwagon to escape a life where he was working for things that he didn’t need and didn’t truly make him happy. Minimalism has served him well, and he’s been living in his bus for just about 2 years now with no regrets.

We got to do a Q&A with Kai which you can read at the end of the post. Enjoy the photo tour!

This is a story of Paul and Annett and their beautiful off-grid tiny home in Byron Bay, New South Wales. Below you’ll find video tours from Bryce of Living Big in a Tiny House to see for yourself how this couple is living completely off-grid and making the most out of life.

We’re so grateful for being able to live this lifestyle. Even after 2 years of living in our tiny, we sometimes still pinch ourselves.
