Today’s Feature Friday is This is Bus!

We’ve followed Dustin and Amanda for quite some time, along with their adorable entourage of two pups and kiddo named Ezra that all live in their skoolie. In fact, we had a hard time narrowing down the features we love most on their bus!

We decided that mostly, we just love their vibe – which is utterly genuine. This is an account we don’t just follow for pretty bus pictures. We love following their story (for instance, they are about to become parents for the second time), hearing about the mishaps (like Ezra’s recent tooth mishap), and witnessing the love that they have for each other and their son.

Want to see what I mean? I bet you’ll feel all sunny and warm after looking through these photos – and it’s not just because their skoolie contains all the warm shades of the desert!

THAT COPPER KITCHEN SINK/KID BATHTUB

One of the standout features on @thisisbus is without a doubt that hammered copper farmhouse sink. It’s an instant eyecatcher, and that’s saying something in a bus full of amazing design details. But the fact that it doubles as a toddler bathtub? That puts it completely over the top on our wow-o-meter. When building a bus, thinking of creative ways one item can do multiple jobs is a must to save space, and this is one of those examples where creative thinking and good planning are evident.

THE RETRO PAINT JOB

We love that the outside matches the inside. The retro stripes on the outside in shades of yellow and orange flow inside to a similar color scheme inside that focuses on sunshine and warmth. I always know I’m seeing a photo from them in my feed before I even see the name, with their vibe that makes me feel like I’m in the heat of the desert even in the middle of a Montana winter. This paint job is perfect – understated and minimal with a firm stamp of their own personality.

A COMPLETELY OPEN LAYOUT

This floor plan is perfect for a family with small kids in that it’s open and allows lots of space to move and grow. We can totally see Ezra running around like crazy up and down the hallway, flipping onto that couch, and family time spent cooking and relaxing. When you live in such a small space, using it to the best advantage is key – and we think this layout really does.

A BED MADE FOR FAMILY CUDDLES

Besides the fact that this room looks utterly relaxing and inviting and warm, can we just agree that this bed looks like it’s absolutely made for family cuddle sessions?! Taking up the whole back of the bus, @thisisbus has one of the most awesome beds we’ve seen on a skoolie. And with two dogs, a toddler, and an infant on the way, it’s another marker of thoughtful planning that this bed can fit a whole crew!

EVERYTHING IN THIS HALLWAY

I’m cheating a little because this photo has multiple features I love, but since I’m also posting this Feature Friday on a Saturday, I think it’s cool to break the rules a little more. In this photo, you can see Ezra’s bunk, his bookshelf, a washer/dryer unit, the bottom of that super plush bed, and of course, the four-legged members of the family. We love that Ezra has his own little space, complete with bookshelf. We also love that they have their own washer/dryer, a nicety that not every skoolie has. Mostly, we love the way this space, while tiny, flows together. And look at those gorgeous pups!

EVERYTHING ABOUT THE KITCHEN

It isn’t just the sink that’s awesome in this kitchen – it’s everything. From the butcher block counters with their gorgeous lines, the tiny white full-size stove, that adorable retro-looking fridge, and the clever use of jars under-mounted to the shelves, this little kitchen is absolutely perfect. While we also love modern kitchens, this one feels absolutely homey to us. The macrame hangings, photos, warm woods, and little tiles make this seem like a place to gather and share.
