Hello, and thanks for visiting! We are Justin, Val, and Nova (oh and our dogs Pilof and Nala), and in November of 2017 we drove our new friend, school bus cool kid “Gilligan Phantom” all the way to Charleston, SC from the distant country of California where he was a mountain loving child transporter. We chose Gilligan because:

He’s unique. He’s got a tall ceiling. He’s got a basic and reliable engine. He’s got undercarriage storage. He’s got huge windows. He just looks really handsome.

We are a young family who are converting this school bus into a tiny home so that we can fulfill our dream of traveling the US and visiting the majority of our lovely national parks. Before that happens though we’ve got to build him into our off-grid home, test him out, and put our finances and lives thoroughly in order. It sounds like a tall task, but we’ve got this under control…most of the time.

While content here may be sparse for the time being, please visit and subscribe to our Youtube channel where we are posting videos about our build progress on a weekly basis, and our Instagram where we are posting photo updates frequently!

Thanks for visiting, and feel free to shoot us an e-mail if you have questions!
