Stunning School Bus Conversion and Container Multi-Purpose Room for Family of 5

  • Published on Nov 24, 2018
  • 🚌👨👩👦👦👶 Trebventure is skoolie family of five. Led by wife and mother, Ashley, they converted a school bus into a stunning home. It features big comfy couches with ample storage for bulky kitchen appliances, games, etc. The kids have a bunkhouse, each with their own private space. The raised roof shower with skylight is to die for! After traveling for six months, they created a homestead oasis in Corrales, NM, where there are no restrictions on RV/THOW long-term parking. On their property, they have a lovely outdoor living space and container, converted to be a room of requirement. It functions as Brandon’s office, homeschool classroom and hangout space for the kids and their pals. What we love about this skoolie is how Ashley and Brandon perfected the space as they lived in it, to make it more functional and even more beautiful.

    To encourage children in the way of sin with fake tattoos is repulsive. According to Moses, God said: ”You shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor tattoo any marks on you: I am the Lord.” (Leviticus 19:28)

      @Melanie Gertenbach Calitz Well, I can see that you're a bigot. And so, I'll make you a deal. If you will apologize for your existence, then I may consider apologizing for mine.

      Isiah James ... awfully presumptuous and quite rude of you to think people you don't know at all, have the same beliefs as you. Why do christians do this??? I think you owe them an apology.

    Living tiny sucks. I feel sorry for the kids. It's like a jail for them. What are you going to do when they are in their teens in that little bus?

    • Tiny House Expedition
      Tiny House Expedition  2 months ago +1

      Everyone is different, and needs can change overtime. Not many people live in the same house their entire lives. In this case, the bus can be used for camping, as rental or to house another family member, perhaps when someone graduates high school.

    More Americans should buy land in Mexico or anywhere other than the US. It's a shame that there are so many rules and regulations in the "land of the free" that taxpaying citizens STILL can't live on their own land like they want to. SMDH. Everything you do, you need a license or a permit. Good way to keep sucking money out of our pockets, right? Why do we put up with this crap??? Why don't we raise hell about the injustices in this country? Are we all brainwashed sheep? Anyway, I love your bus! Sorry about the rant. Good luck to you and your family!

      My husband is the WORST sleeping partner!!! I’ve been woken up sooooo many times getting elbowed in the face or having a knee into my back 😭 I’ve since acquired a maternity pillow that keeps him on his side of the bed and allows us both to sleep 😄

      @What...the...funk I know exactly how she/they feel! There's a huge difference between trying to get some quality sleep (w/o another person's arms,legs,etc., keeping you awake or disturbing your sleep) *touching* and "let's-get-it-on" *touching*! Lol Apparently you haven't slept in a bed with someone else for more than a few nights!! :-D

America has changed in the time I've been on earth where a person could do on his property what he needed to do to sustain himself. It's the "NO" generation that has taken over.

      Are you saying living this way is only possible for wealthy? Christian and I definitely don’t come from money, and built our tiny house for $20,000. Granted that would not be possible for many. There are a few great nonprofits around the country who have created permanent tiny house villages, affordable for those making minimum wage.

    Are those bunks still going to fit when the kids are all teenagers? It's nice to see efforts to provide some privacy for kids, but once puberty hits and they get their growth those look like they'll be cramped
