This Musician Couple's School Bus Tiny Home Even Features a Tiny Gym

by Simplify

Cody and Alyssa are a musician couple who love adventure. Their school bus tiny home allows them to travel the country in comfort and style.

Their school bus conversion has a warm and cozy feel, including a shelf with coffee, tea, cereal, and popcorn, a king-size bed with magical fairy lights, a DIY couch made of memory foam and cushions with underneath storage, and two lounge chairs with cup holders, USB plugs, and a box to hold plugs so they don’t go flying when the bus is on the move.

They have a stove and oven that works off a 60-gallon propane tank, a sink connected to a 5-gallon water jug, plenty of counter space, and a ceiling panel with a monitor that checks fresh and graywater levels as well as battery charge, making it easy to keep track of these important aspects of bus living.

In this video they give some school bus conversion ideas and share their story:

When the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic canceled many of their performance engagements, this pair of musicians decided to use the opportunity to travel and create new adventures together.

Thanks to their cover song of “Send Me On My Way” which became a hit on TikTok, they had some extra cash and decided to put it into traveling. This included not only their school bus home conversion but also splurging on things like toll roads in order to go faster.

Something important to the couple was to have room in their school bus home to do their workout routine while on the road, so they installed a tiny home gym with a stair stepper that folds out and a workout bench that doubles as dumbbells.

They also made sure to take important family items with them, such as the large-print Bananagrams gifted to them by Alyssa’s grandmother.
