Thanks Instagram family for inspiring this post. We have been asked quite a few times about the wall heater we have installed in our bus, so here’s a post all about it. It is a Dyna-Glo model . It runs on Propane or Natural Gas. There is a small space on the back to make
We made it to Albuquerque in time for the 2019 Balloon Fiesta. We found out about the event from some really cool people we had met at a dog park in Loveland Colorado. We parked at a Planet Fitness a half mile from the Balloon Museum and Park. The next morning we woke up to
One of the questions we were asked repeatedly at the Nashville Tiny Living Festival was… “Where do you park?” At the time, we hadn’t parked our bus many places. To be honest we had expected a lot more hassle in this area of #buslife, we have gotten a little bit, but a lot less than

Our Christmas was made extra special by the fact that we officially moved into our school bus tiny home and spent our first night at a campsite in this rolling home. We decided to stay at this park because it was relatively close and was fairly inexpensive; and it had openings when I booked the
This corner is one of Destoni’s favorite spaces in the bus. We decided to keep an entire 7 foot counter space on one side of the kitchen space, meaning we cut in the sink and stove on the other side. This allows us to use the counter space for other things like prepping food, desk
Our house is up for sale and we are moving into our bus today. We have many things left to do to make this Tiny Home On Wheels complete in our eyes, but we are ready to jump in and move out of our traditional house. As happy as that makes us we wanted to take a moment to talk about a serious issue that we want to address. Homelessness
When we bought our bus back in December 2017 we knew we would be changing a tire sooner rather than later. 11 months later and halfway through this conversion we are at that point. We found out that changing a tire on the bus is quite the experience, and can be quite expensive. I called
“We have built our own tiny home once and we are well on our way of completing the Skoolie Tiny Home of our dreams.” In our 20 or so years together Destoni and I have lived in some small spaces, from a studio apartment to a self built tiny house in an old portable
We are from Florida, 10 months out of the year it is hot and humid and the other 2 months it is hot and not as humid. Along with dodging hurricanes and everyday showers, snakes and alligators, and trying to not get killed by the notorious “Florida Man” (Google that and see the insanity that

This isn’t a story about how our life fell apart the moment we bought our bus, so sorry about the clickbaity title. This is actually a self-realization story about how our life has changed since we took on the challenge of converting our bus, downsizing our possessions and are searching for new life experiences. We’re
We are not professionals builders by any means but we have surprised ourselves with how much we have been able to accomplish on our own. One thing we have noticed though with our build is that the amount of time we think a project should take is always off. We are spending about double the

My wife and I bought a school bus to turn into a tiny home on wheels. We found the bus on Craigslist. It’s a 2000 Blue Bird International 3800 with a 7.3 liter Navistar T444E Engine and only 170,000 miles. The plan is to build this into our mobile home to be used as we
