Julie and Andrew, along with their dog, Starbuck and their cat, Mr. Butters live in this 200 square foot school bus in Georgia. The bus is a 1990 Blue Bird.
They chose this path after their landlord raised the rent on their apartment in Atlanta.
They set up camp in the lush pines of Georgia, and quickly learned how to store things creatively and choose multi-functional elements to make this small home work.
Their bus sits close to a lake where Andrew goes kayaking and Starbuck has plenty of room to run. When they decide to travel, they can do so, for this bus is ready for the road.
The couch lifts up with storage space underneath.
Starbuck has the perfect place for dog travel with a gate to keep him safe.
Their kitchen is designed for everything to have a place, which of course is the secret to small space living.
Their food pantry is on rollers in a cabinet underneath the sink.
Next to the pantry is their dishware, also on rollers, perfectly organized and stored. A shelf overhead makes room for their microwave.
They have a stove for heat as well as an air conditioner for hot days, so living in their bus is a comfortable solution for both home and travel.
Their bedroom has shelves built all around the top to store books. The bed lifts up with built-in storage underneath.
Their closet is behind the curtain.
The toilet area is simple but efficient.
This is their shower area adjacent to the bathroom.
By designing their home on wheels with basic needs and simple living in mind, they’ve found the perfect solution for small space living and no longer have to pay apartment rent. Plus their home is cozy and ready for travel at any time.
