The bus is located in Hillwood, Tasmania, on their family’s farmland. She added that they specifically requested a bendy bus from the seller because they needed a vehicle large enough to accommodate a family.
“I did say to Nick, if we’re going to live in it, I want to have a king bed. I want a full-size kitchen and a full-size shower and he made all that work,” she said.
“We have up-cycled secondhand materials, handmade items, sourced local products and have aimed to be conscious in our purchases to create a unique home,” reads the listing.
As with any tiny home, Emma and Nick also had to find storage solutions and downsize their possessions before moving in. Emma said they sold a lot of stuff and purchased a shed for additional storage.
“I love the light that gets in there,” she said.” We tried to keep as many windows as we possibly could and I love the sun streaming in and being able to see out into nature so you feel really close to your surroundings.”
