This is a converted school bus that Sarah Szymczak, her husband Ed, and their four kids live in.
Sarah says, “I never thought we would own a school bus. Yet, it does not surprise me that we do. We’re always up for an adventure, always open to venturing outside of the norm. Two creative parents. Four fun loving kiddos. And a whole lot of wild and crazy dreaming.”
I hope you enjoy learning how this family converted an old school bus into a fun, crafty and cozy tiny home for six! So I’ll let Sarah take you on their journey to school bus living below.
We want our children, our family, to be grounded in a lifestyle that isn’t about the next big purchase, but rather the next experience that feeds the core of who we are. So, we bought a bus. Here’s how that happened…

This 620 Sq. Ft. Container House in Dallas, TX is a guest post by Amber Richter – share yours!
Our container house is 620 sq. ft. with two bedrooms and two bathrooms. It will be finished at the end of August! Spray foam and drywall are done. House is painted. We put the floors down and building the kitchen now. When all is said and done our container home cost about $60,000. Once we decided to go all in and start this project I rented my condo in California, quit my job, and moved to Dallas so we could start building.
The most difficult part of transitioning into a tiny home? Selling all of my furniture and clothes. Definitely, a difficult thing to do. A tiny home forces you to only have what you need. Our bedroom closet is also our laundry room and water heater room, which leaves me space for maximum of 10 outfits plus some PJ’s and shoes under the bed. Nothing else. It’s been fun to find small furniture pieces together that works for the both of us. A great way to start our new life. Please enjoy, learn more and re-share below. Thank you!

Flexotels Collapsible Micro Shelters Set Up in 10 Minutes
This is a 340 sq. ft. modern NYC studio apartment. As you enter the apartment you first see the open living area and the kitchen that wraps around the bathroom.
At the end of the kitchen is a small bar area for dining. And the open living area seems spacious enough to have a small gathering of friends and family over. Wouldn’t it be cool to see an expandable dining table in here?
The built-in entertainment center has plenty of cabinets to store your personal belongings and keep them out of sight. And there’s even a sleek work area with even more storage.
Around the other side of a wooden shutter divider is the bedroom. A sliding door for privacy would be great here, don’t you think?
Inside the bedroom you will see there is a closet with sliding doors along with plenty of drawers for your clothes. Please enjoy and re-share below. Thank you!
Inside you’ll find two lofts… One is made for storage and the other as your bedroom which you can access through a custom built staircase. The bedroom sleeping loft also has dormers so it feels extra spacious up there. Nice, right? And it even has a little bathtub which many tiny homes don’t always get. You can see it all below.
Molecule did a great job with the kitchen which you’ll be able to see and judge for yourself below. So please enjoy the tour, re-share it with your tiny house friends, and if you’re interested this tiny house on wheels is for sale with an asking price of $58,000. That’s no chump change, but it’s a high quality tiny house and it’s ready to tow and move into! Absolutely no work needed (so please don’t comment about the price being unaffordable because we all already know it’s a whole lot of money. Instead, take some of the design ideas and inspiration you see since that’s always free here).
Cape Cod Molecule Tiny House For Sale: Two Lofts w/ Stairs
This 425 sq. ft. micro apartment in Manhattan has been wonderfully renovated called the MicroLoft. Back in the 1990s it was purchased for about $95,000.
Years later it was renovated for a cost of $400,000 for a client to make every square inch inside count and I’m showing you here so you can get an idea of what you can really do with a small amount of space. And, of course, we can implement the same ideas in here ourselves (if you’re a DIY person) and not pay any where nearly as much money.
Louise Harpman, founding partner of Specht Harpman, says that the demand for small spaces right now is huge and it continues to grow in many areas across the country. She also talks about other designs like the ZeroHouse that they are developing and offering.
