Emma and Justin fell in love at 15, and as high school graduation loomed, were trying to decide what to do next. College? Stay home with their parents? Neither option sounded fun, but they saw van/bus conversions all over YouTube and thought that was their best course of action.

While they spent $6,000 more than they thought they would, and it took months longer, the end results of their bus conversion are truly stunning. There’s a wet bath, a kitchen with plenty of counter space, and even room for a mini art studio for Emma’s creations. Plus, this couple is adorable! Enjoy their tour below.

What an awesome couple! Nate, Sheena, and their dog live together in a beautifully built-out short bus conversion. The two of them seem so genuine and sweet — I wish we could be friends! Their home has a pretty sky blue exterior, and the inside features a lot of wood tones.

They use a wood stove that sits on a tile hearth to keep themselves warm, and Sheena has convinced Nate to let them keep the large (but ugly) air conditioner for those *really* hot nights. They have a convertible table and a cedar-lined wet bath as well. Enjoy the tour!

When EJ saw one of her friends head out traveling with his mom, she felt jealous and wanted that kind of freedom! Thankfully, her dad was totally on board with her plan and helped the 20-year-old completely transform this short bus into a raised-roof school bus tiny home.

She only spent $12k on the entire conversion, including the cost of the bus. And yes, it has a hidden toilet and shower! The kitchen cabinets are covered in gorgeous artwork that EJ created, and in deference to her bus’ name (Loki), she painted the exterior of the bus bright green.

If you’ve watched any of the Tiny Home Tours videos we post here, you are probably familiar with Brad’s work. He is a regular videographer for their YouTube Channel, but that’s not all! He’s an amazing photographer and sells his prints and works some commercial gigs as well.

This isn’t his first rodeo with tiny living, but this latest rig has been his for a couple months. He formerly traveled the whole country looking for work and getting discovered. He made his rig super functional, with a spacious kitchen, hidden Nature’s Head toilet, and tons of amazing garage space for his RAD bike.

While our goal here, of course, is to focus on tiny *homes,* it’s really cool to see what else creative people can do with alternative spaces! Dr. Ari — a doctor of acupuncture — decided to make the niftiest pediatric acupuncture office ever out of a short bus. It allows her to bring her services to the kids who need them, and make them feel more comfortable.

Dr. Ari does camp in her short bus from time to time, so the waiting area couch actually folds out into a queen-sized bed. The interior is light and bright with pastel rainbow accents and a cute chain of happy llamas. I wish all doctors’ offices were this nice!

During his senior year of college, Stefaan spent his class periods scrolling through Marketplace searching for a bus that he and his buddies could hop into and trash during the summer they graduated. But once Stefaan found his rig and started putting in the hours fixing mechanical issues, rust problems and water damage, he simply couldn’t imagine letting it become a frat house on wheels.

So he turned it into his home, instead. The result is a gorgeously-finished home complete with cool features like an electric lock for his fridge, a shower with a self-cleaning door, and an awesome roof-deck. He’s a photographer by trade, catching great pictures all over the country.

After a shorter excursion in their 4Runner, Miles and Sinclaire decided they wanted to hit the road full-time. They got remote jobs and saved a portion of each paycheck so they could complete their build in a year — and believe it or not, they finished two months early!

Their 2002 E-450 Shuttle Bus included handicap access, which they left in place so they could open the doors and enjoy the view from their queen-sized bed. They also managed to fit in a tile-and-cedar shower stall, cassette toilet, a three-burner stove/oven, and a mini-split A/C (run via generator) for all the comforts of home. Enjoy the video tour below!

Alex, like so many others, was getting cabin fever during COVID. Suddenly her remote work stuck at home seemed more and more unfulfilling — but she wasn’t ready to make a major life change yet. As a self-proclaimed “high maintenance” person, she said she was the last person anyone in her life expected to choose a nomadic life without a shower.

But then her mom passed away from breast cancer, which acted as a catalyst that pushed her out of her comfort zone and toward short bus life. She has realized in her months on the road that she needs so much less than she ever imagined she did — with three favorite outfits, a handful of hats, and her sweet puppy named Arlo. Enjoy her tour!

When it comes to living tiny, you *have* to get creative. I have seen hidden toilets tucked into all kinds of spaces in buses and vans, but this is the first time I’ve seen one pull out from under a mini wood stove!

This is Akram and Shawna’s second bus build and it features pallet wood cabinets, a pull-out pantry, black walnut live-edge counter top and tons of awesome vintage features. It took the couple 8 months to build out, and cost between $30-$35K, including the cost of their short bus.

Tell us what you think!
