Meet Matthew, a restaurant chef with a super amazing skoolie he built out over two years with his dad. While he doesn’t travel the world, he enjoys his budget build and staying stationary, doing the job he loves! He is opening a new restaurant, as well, which is super awesome.

Inside the skoolie you’ll find a large couch (he wanted to be able to take naps on the couch), amazing live-edge counter tops, a huge kitchen sink and a magnetic knife rack with LOTS of knives. He also has a full bed and an office area in the back.

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!

Selling our Magic School Bus! I bought this bus almost four years ago and have been converting, driving, and living in it with my family every day since. Now I’m selling it as-is with everything you need to move right in and start traveling just as comfortably as we have been. This bus comes with my Honda generator, heavy-duty battery charger and a wired-in battery bank that can keep the fridge running for three days. It even comes with the extension chords to plug it into city electric. It comes with clean sheets for the beds, cookware, and custom made insulating curtains and a shelf full of seasoned fire wood for the wood-stove. This bus has everything plus the kitchen sink!
