DIY Double Decker Bus tiny house conversion – Family of 8

VIDEO DESCRIPTION:

You are looking at a 47k lb, 13′ 5.5″ ft tall, 43ft long beast of a small home! The Everly family resolved that time spent working, to take two weeks 12 months together, was off balance. With some research and a quick decision, they fell upon the double-decker bus they had renovated to suit their family and full-time travel.

This rig has two restrooms with a separate indoor and outdoor shower! The kitchen has a farmhouse style with a deep sink, induction stove, and an abundance of gear for outdoor cooking. The rooftop deck has a sturdy railing so the whole family can enjoy the views, which includes hammocks that can hang from the safety guards! The children dominate a daytime play area that turns into the parents drowsing quarters after dark. This crew is family-oriented and travel driven. What an escapade!

  1. Did this tour motivate you to live tiny? This video got me pumped up to mod my very own tiny house 😍

    • You need two roof mounted electric heat pumps to cool that many square feet without a more robust insulation solution. They tie directly into your furnace and thermostat and will cool the entire rig easily whether you are driving or not. Heat on the coils and wind across them is all that needs to happen. As long as you keep the furnace circulation fan on they work as well as a swamp cooler running down the highway.

      And you really should have talked to some Airstream mechanics before you got into planning this out. You’ve used the floor space real efficiently but not much else. You could give yourself that “walk past someone without sucking it in” kinda space in those walkways.

      You trade alot for those great big glass windows too. You might consider replacing them with snap down clear plastic windows and adding awnings with RV awning tents off either side. Give yourself some living space to spread out, kids on one side, adults on the other type scenario. You can really add quite a bit of enclosed space to the sides of that RV without adding much weight or expensive slides and motors.

      Nice project though. Looks sharp.

    • @Gunnar Raiden I understand what you are saying, but it does not apply to these people. He is well employed, can afford to live a fulfilling life in a house or bus, and values his family, travel and experience…good for them!

    • You are more than blessed being financially able to swing this life style for you and your family. You seem so casual about it. Very very few families of eight could ever embark on such an adventure.

    • Amazing work respect brother

    • @Michael M. He’s a software developer so he’s probably got a few $$ saved up. Depending on their lifestyle, they might even save some dollars doing this, and get to travel as well.

    There’s a dark undertone to this – where are the kids? Or the wife, for that matter…

    I really appreciate you sharing your story I love your living bus /home it’s beautiful the average people don’t have six kids so I can imagine what you could do with less people you’d have so much more space but I love the idea that you guys are doing this with your life make the most of it enjoy it you’re so right they grow up very fast be safe out there God bless

  5. 6 kids but 4 bunks…did I miss the other two bunks? Best wishes…the layout is very functional

  6. A really amazing adventure house on wheels! Everything comes across very beautiful. I really don’t understand why you would want to make the exterior look more like a typical mobile home. The grey looks clean and rich without the graffiti look most motor homes are styling.

    The one thing that I’ve always wondered about with tall vehicles. Are you ever worried that one day…or night, you might be driving along and not knowing there is a low bridge, overpass or low whatever in your path?

  7. I volunteer to be number 9!!

  9. Nice bus! The trek thru the solar panels to get to the “SAFE” area seems iffy though.
