This is Nick and Frankie, their school bus conversion tiny home, and their 3 beautiful dogs. One night they watched a documentary about a couple who were traveling around the United States, and they looked at each other, and asked, “can we do that?”
Fast forward to today, and they’re living full-time in their custom-built skoolie with a raised roof so it feels pretty spacious inside. It’s painted white, has custom windows, solar panels, and there’s even a wood-burning stove inside to make it feel like you’re in a cabin. Enjoy the photo and video tour below!

Couple Living Full-Time In Their School Bus Conversion With Their 3 Dogs in Colorado!

It all started when they watched a documentary of someone else who was living and traveling on the road.
Within a month, they were fully committed with a bus! They raised the roof, and started making it into the beautiful tiny home that you see here…
It’s almost like you can’t tell it’s a bus right?
It’s just over 200-sq.-ft. of space.
They just started living in the bus recently, (it’s still their first year), but so far they are learning a lot and enjoying it, too.
They spent a total of about 60,000 to build this beautiful home on wheels. A lot of money, but much less than buying a home.
Thanks to their bus, they have more time now to spend in the outdoors, exploring, and hiking.
And when they start venturing out and traveling longer distances, it’s nice to know they their actual home will be able to go along with them, too.
One of the nicest skoolies yet!
Feeding the doggies 🙂
Plenty of space to cook!
A cozy main floor bedroom in the rear of the bus.
Can you imagine living and traveling out of your very own motor cottage like this?
