Josie is an amazing woman who took on the challenge of ever-increasing rent prices in Kent, England, and built herself a shuttle bus home — even without any previous DIY experience! You’d never know she was inexperienced with power tools by looking at the finished product. It’s cozy, creative and adorable.

Right now, Josie lives in her bus home while working as a dancer on the West End, but she has plans to jump into full-time bus life in Spring 2024! We had the privilege of interviewing Josie, so please check out her story below, and follow her on social media for updates.

Nick began his nomadic life after he got a remote job and sold his dog daycare. He already owned a truck, so he purchased a cheap 50-year-old truck camper, put it on his vehicle, and hit the road! After seven months of living with that set-up, he had a good idea of what he wanted in a more permanent rig—and that’s what led to the epic shuttle bus you’ll see below!

His skoolie feels like a cozy cabin inside, mainly due to the milled 4x4s he used to panel the interior. There’s a lovely variation in the wood tons, which adds tons of character. He has an outdoor shower, indoor toilet, chest fridge/freezer (for ice cream), and many unique accommodations for his blind dog, Narlie. Enjoy the tour below!

Jamie lost her husband 17 years ago and raised her daughters on her own. About six years of that time they spent on a homestead with horses and dairy goats! But when her youngest got engaged, she decided it was time to do something for herself and see the country.

While she tried to work remotely when she first hit the road, she felt like it was taking away from her really enjoying her travels, so she’s been living off the sale of her home for now. She has plans to travel across Canada next and end up in Alaska where one of her daughters lives now.

Weston has always been fascinated by tiny homes and nomadic living, so when he found this bus for sale not far from him (for a great deal), he decided to take the plunge! A carpenter and woodworker by trade, he included so many gorgeous wood details in the conversion.

His unfolding shower setup is really cool (and doesn’t require removing a shower curtain), and he has an epic rooftop deck that also holds all his tools. A giant U-shaped hang-out area converts to a giant bed! Super comfy.

Rita is a remarkable woman who converted an old shuttle bus into her PINK home on wheels in just a few months — all by herself.  Oh, and she only spent $9K on the whole thing!

She kept the interior of her bus simple, but awesome, and made sure she had a dedicated studio space for all of her painting with different mediums. Enjoy the tour!

Jagaloria went to Standing Rock and met so many people living alternatively, she said it just didn’t feel right to stay in her apartment and work her life away. Thankfully, she made connections while there that allowed her to find a short bus and make it home!

Amazingly, her conversion only took one month of work with a former partner! The turquoise bus has all she needs — a bed, dinette and kitchen space — and she sells smudges, dream catchers, salves, and other products to afford her life on the road. Enjoy our Q&A with her below!

Johnny got his bus for $3,000 — and it needed a lot of work, especially regarding rust! A year and a half later, he was able to move into his truly beautiful skoolie.

He made sure to keep his two large dogs in mind when building, making them a comfortable under-bed lounge area and making sure he could keep the temperature comfortable for his fur babies. He has a unique couch and dinette design that I haven’t seen before, so be sure to watch the video for the details!

Kari is an amazing woman who has had some great experiences, such as backpacking across Europe, spending two years on a sailboat, and converting a farmhouse into an adorable home. She also built out her bus, Willow, for vacations while living in her farmhouse. It was then that she realized she didn’t like leaving her bus!

She tried to buy a tiny house and rent out the farmhouse. But she came home to the tiny home and still wanted to live in her bus! So now she rents out the farmhouse and the tiny house and just enjoys traveling the country in Willow. Enjoy her beautiful design below.
