This is a 1979 GMC Blue Bird school bus that doubles as a vintage store and road-tripping DIY motorhome for British Columbia couple, Marco Khalil and Caroline West.

Inside what seems to be an ordinary looking school bus there are vintage accents that the couple have picked up along the way throughout their adventures. Inside the bus you’ll find a bed, cabinets for storage and a sitting area to make it a comfortable place to relax and rest after a long day on the road. Notice the custom curtains that flip up to the ceiling when not in use. What a great yet simple idea, right?

The couple removed all the seats from the bus and the full renovation only took them ten days to complete! And of course there is a name for the bus. It’s Riley. Marco and Caroline use Riley as a backyard cabin on their property when they are not on the road searching for more vintage treasures and fun experiences. How’d you like getting to live in a DIY school bus motorhome while on the road? Either way please enjoy and re-share below. Thank you!

This 450 Not-So-Square Ft. Yurt is a guest post by Jen McGeehan – share yours!

Our little love yurt is nestled within an Ohia forest, one of the few remaining (they were almost completely wiped out when the sugar cane industry arrived!) on our island in Hawaii.

The God of our universe is still in the business of financial healing and restoration! Travel to paradise as one financially devastated couple take a flight-of-faith, leaving the economically-challenged mountains of Southern California for the unknown off-grid lifestyle of a rented yurt on the Big Island of Hawaii.

The country-wide real estate and banking collapse of 2008 sent millions of American families into financial ruin. Many hung on for dear life, believing the market would correct itself within a year or two. By 2010, no correction was in sight.

In my book, “My Year In A Yurt“, I tell the true story of how my hubby, Pat, and I filled a 40-foot Matson container, shipped our two vehicles, along with our twenty-nine year old equine and three-year old goat, and flew the friendly skies in search of a simpler way of life.

Our enormous debt of over $600,000 came as invisible baggage, as did the painful memory of handing our realtor the keys to our 3,000 square-foot home after three and a half years on the non-existent real estate market. As foreclosure and bankruptcy – additional unwanted travel companions – reared our heads, I sent yet another urgent prayer to heaven asking for God’s divine intervention.

One of our readers, Karen Rogers, submitted photos of her 400 sq. ft. garden cottage. Karen and her husband are collectors and grandparents who love displaying antiques and their grandson’s artwork around their home.

Let’s take a look inside this cozy little garden cottage. As you walk up the steps you enter a covered porch, which is perfect for afternoon tea time. Once inside, you are in the living room that has all kinds of collectibles around.

As you make your way through the living room you enter the spacious kitchen which features full size appliances. I bet there’s some great home cooking that goes on in here! The bathroom looks to be just beyond the kitchen.

Going back out of the kitchen you’ll see there is a small tucked away staircase off to the right side that looks to go up to a sleeping loft. Please enjoy and re-share below. Thank you!

Here’s a 360 sq. ft. houseboat studio with one full bathroom. This houseboat sold for $175,000 in Seattle, WA.

As you walk down the boardwalk where there are many other houseboats you’ll find this brightly colored floating studio. Through the front door, you will see there are lots of windows all around to bring in natural sunlight into the large spacious living room. The kitchen is off to your right side with plenty of cabinets for storage, a small oven, and mini-refrigerator. There’s also a fold-down table for dining. This is a great space-saving idea for small houses. Beyond the living area is the open bedroom and I believe the bathroom is off to the left, however not pictured here.
