Gillian’s school bus conversion, “Jungle” has more color than most 2,500-square-foot homes! She left her career in set design, her 16-hour days, and her long commutes to NYC and LA to enjoy life as an entrepreneur on the road.

Gillian’s bus features tons of her own textile work (much made from ice tie-dye techniques), an oven, an oversized couch that doubles as a guest bed, and tons of jungle-y accents like bamboo curtains and bold peel-and-stick wallpaper. She does pop-up shops wherever she parks and sells her art along with vintage and thrift goods she finds during her travels.

Eric and Robbyn were nearing retirement age but thought they still had more years to work. That’s when a trip to Europe completely changed their perspective, seeing people who didn’t work themselves into the ground as they do in the U.S. That’s when they got the idea to stop living normally and find a way to travel!

Eric used his amazing carpentry skills to build out their shuttle bus home complete with a queen-sized bed (stationary), bathroom, and large galley kitchen space with tons of overhead cabinetry. Their only regret? They didn’t choose this life sooner!

Ron and Jess were considering upgrading from their one-bedroom apartment when they went on a vacation to a 200-square-foot cabin and realized they could totally live tiny. That’s when they got hooked onto bus life on YouTube and the rest is history.

Their shuttle bus conversion is light and airy, with lightly-stained plywood ceilings, sage green countertops, and mood lighting all the way around the bus. They have a secret DIY composting toilet and a special kitty bunk bed for their fur babies. What do you think of their build?

Matt and Nikki were supposed to get married in 2020, but when those plans got messed up, Nikki slowly started convincing Matt that a bus conversion would be a super fun lifestyle change. At the time they were childless, but the couple just moved into the bus and are expecting a baby any day now!

Nikki spent a lot of time at their local Maker’s Space in Canada, where there are all kinds of tools available for projects. She learned a lot from the folks there, and the couple also relied heavily on family members to help with different aspects of their build. The final result is breathtaking!

Tim Gibson is on a mission to paint 10,000 flowers in murals all across the United States — the idea is that it would be one giant floral mural in small sections everywhere in the country, connecting communities with the beauty of art.

To get to all these towns, Tim takes his bus conversion home. He stores paint and supplies under his bed, he has a flip-down outdoor table and a long table inside. While he doesn’t have an electrical set-up yet, that’s next on his list! His biggest challenge? Stealth parking in a flower-covered rig!

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!

Experience really is the best teacher. After four years living in their first van conversion, musicians Savannah and Drew found themselves with no work due to the pandemic. With all that extra time on their hands, the couple saw it as a sign to start their dream build — a 2007 Ford Shuttle Bus.

Their previous nomadic life helped them know what they needed — and wanted — most in a home-on-wheels. From an air-conditioner that runs on solar power, to the coolest guest bed/seating set-up, to a projector system on magnets, this home has all kinds of neat features! And yes, there’s a tiled shower and a toilet, too.

Believe it or not, Savannah never wanted to live in a van — until she did some research and saw just how amazing van/bus conversions can be. Check out the video from Tiny Home Tours below.

Between Rom and Courtney they have 15 years of experience and 39 (you read that right) bus conversions under their belts. These awesome nomads enjoy the challenge of transforming buses into homes, so they’ve lived in a few as a couple, and then converted numerous others for folks seeking a skoolie.

Their business, “The Wrong Way Home,” offers design consultations, partial builds, and full builds. The work quickly and work onsite in order to get you your home asap. What’s especially neat is that Rom starts with your budget and then tries to work within that budget, seeing what he can offer you for what you can afford. Awesome!

I love Matt & Casandra’s story because it just goes to show you how addicting the tiny lifestyle can be. The couple took on this shuttle bus conversion project as a project to keep them busy during the lockdown. Matt specifically said they would never live in it full-time or sell their home: It was just for vacations.

But after about a month into their first adventure, Matt changed his mind. Both of them (@runaway.ladymay/Instagram) have jobs they can do remotely, so besides building out the skoolie and downsizing, it was an easy transition into the bus.

Now their home is on the market and they are ready for full-time adventuring. How fun! Tiny Home Tours sent us their amazing interview & tour with the couple which you can watch below.
