Basically Nomads: Skoolie Feature Friday

We have affiliate agreements with certain brands and companies. If you purchase items or click on links through this site, we might get a kickback from those brands or companies. This doesn't affect you or what you pay in any way, but it does help fund our journey - so thank you!

Today for our skoolie Feature Friday, we’re highlighting Basically Nomads – a skoolie conversion with tons of standout features to drool over. From the overall layout with tons of functional space to the details (like those amazing doors throughout!), we are in love with this tiny home on wheels.

What we really love about this account, however, is their mentality. They originally wanted to build a tiny home out of a shipping container, but didn’t know where they wanted to put it! They didn’t let that stop them, however, and built a skoolie to simultaneously live their tiny dream while looking for a place for their planned shipping container home. In a world where it’s easy to get discouraged because of obstacles, they prove you can push forward with your dreams by choosing an alternative path to keep moving forward.

AN AWESOME DEDICATED WORKSPACE

This skoolie has two workspaces on either side of the living space. One is slightly larger, home to a huge gaming screen, and the other is slightly smaller beside the kitchen. Both fold down, making them perfect for a small space where areas sometimes need to be dual purpose. Having added a workspace to our own bus, we can totally get behind the luxury of having a home office space to work in.

AN OPEN BUT COZY FEELING LAYOUT

Center aisle layouts are tough. While they keep one long hallway through the space, and in that way help it feel open, they can also start feeling closed off if there’s too much going on at the sides. This one really found a comfortable balance between open and cozy. A neutral color scheme helps keep it bright and open, and balancing where taller and overhead cupboards are keeps it from feeling closed in.

A THOUGHTFULLY DESIGNED AND BEAUTIFUL BATHROOM

There is so much to love about this bathroom. The bright white subway tiles, the shower with extra headroom, and the toilet placed strategically by the side door, which we imagine makes it much easier to empty. Plus, housing the toilet and shower in one space means reduced cleaning – and we are all for less cleaning and more adventuring.

THE CUTEST LITTLE WOOD STOVE AREA EVER

First of all, there’s the copper surround. We obviously love copper and have it all over our own build, and it works perfectly here as a heat shield. Then there’s that adorable little stove and the built-in wood box underneath. We can totally imagine a little fire in there during a chilly winter morning, and it makes us want to pull out the pumpkin spice flavored everything right now!

THOSE DOORS THO

Every skoolie has its own little flare, and the doors throughout this bus are one of those standout features in this build. Each one has been handmade with its own awesome geometric design. Better yet, they filmed a video on how they created them so that you can build one in your own home, whether it has wheels or not!
