Georgia natives Julie and Andrew Puckett always knew the traditional pickett-fenced five-bedroom house wasn't for them. Today, they live in a custom-renovated 1990 Bluebird bus made up of less than 200 square feet.
It only took about $1,000, five months and tremendous help from family members before the bus was fully renovated and the new homeowners were ready to move in.
The bus is painted a rustic teal on the outside and white on the inside. A couch pulls out as a bed where Andew and Julie's dog, Starbuck — named after the character from Battlestar Galactica — often lounges. There's an RV-style toilet, a shower with an on-demand water heater and a small kitchen.
"We realize tiny living isn't a one-size-fits all solution to the housing crisis," Julie said. "What we do hope is that people will see our story, and realize how freeing it can be to live with less."
The Pucketts, both members of their own folk-rock band, even have a vision of one day turning the bus into their very own "tiny tour bus."
