Two years ago, Andrew and I were at a crossroads in our lives. We knew we didn’t want to stay in Chicago, but we weren’t ready to buy a home that would lock us into one location for years and years. Right on cue, the documentaries for tiny houses started sprouting up left and right. Tiny houses were (seemingly overnight) part of our cultural consciousness, and the appeal of them was enormous.

    While I think you’re reading too much into this, I do appreciate your simple layout. It suits for living, and if it makes you happy, than your decision was all for the better. Nice bus.

    I LOVE your bus!!! My husband and I have been going back and forth on a house bus or a THOW for a long time now. I love the mobility of the buses and yours is SO beautiful! Where do you park it on a regular basis? Do you have to live in an RV park or do you have other arrangements?

    Bravo! I just heard over the radio 60% of americans are renters. Scary thought…..one day we will all realize we can once again regain true freedom from beautiful, simple and very inexpensive living. You both are very smart and can achieve any dream thru this way of LIVING! what a work of ART!

    Hello,

    I was wondering how much you spent renovating the bus? Additionally what do your monthly costs look like? My husband and I are planning on making the switch to living in an RV full time and your bus is exactly what we are looking for.

    Thank you.

    i think that you and Andrew made amazing and beautiful changes and turned the bus into a great home! After much thought and discussion, my spouse and I downsized into a 31 ft class C motorhome. We are enjoying making changes inside that make it uniquely ours, while the exterior still looks factory-fresh. We never tire of the small space. Rather than saying life became simpler, I’d had to say it became more intentional.

    Such a beautiful home! I love all the decorating and homey touches and it seems to be laid out quite well for function. One of the best buses turned tiny home that I’ve seen.

    Hello,
    I Love you little home!!! This is a dream for me and I am working toward this very thing. Could you tell me where you found your bus?
    Kind regards,
    Lisa

    I love the bus. Not only has everything been well thought out but you also have a talent for design. The only thing I would add is to use different clothes hangers. They make those flat kind of felt covered hangers that you can buy anywhere. Trust me when I tell you they will double your closet space. Those plastic tube hangers take up way more space. In the meantime enjoy your adventure.

    […] decided to buy a 25 year old bus and convert it into their home in Atlanta, Georgia. Awhile back I featured their lovely home on wheels on Tiny House Swoon and it received some great feedback. Recently they were kind and generous enough to give us a video […]

  18. […] Julie and Andrew Puckett live happily in their converted school bus in Atlanta, Georgia. They were kind enough to give us a tour of their 200 square feet home that they appropriately call “The Housebus.” Thanks Julie and Andrew for sharing!
