A family of 6 travels full-time in this renovated bus. Take a tour

Whitney is the photographer behind @cedarbendtravels, where she documents life on the road with her husband and four small children. That's right, this growing family of six travels full time in a renovated MCI bus.
Once a 55-passenger coach, the couple completely renovated the space into their moveable tiny house. After ditching about a third of their belongings, the family feels life on the road gives their children "both roots and wings."

Entering the bus, you'll find the driver's seat as well as two captain's chairs where parents and older kiddos can sit.
Just beyond the entryway, a roomy sofa (that pulls out into a bed for visitors) creates a cozy living area across from a wide-screen television and built-in fireplace.
The family opted for an L-shaped kitchen, with lots of overhead storage for pots, pans, dishes and pantry items. The space is equipped with a stove, dishwasher, apartment-size refrigerator and farmhouse sink with a built-in cover for all the comforts of home.
Overhead twinkle lights and large windows keep the space bright and airy with a clean white color palette.
On the hallway behind the kitchen, a small room doubles as a toy room and home for the family dogs when they're on the road. Next, you'll find a fully functioning bathroom with a full tub/shower combo, sink and composting toilet.
Constantly reimagining the space, Whitney repainted the bathroom to match new Target linens. The children's silhouettes double as artful towel hooks.
Behind the bathroom are the sleeping bunks enjoyed by the three eldest children. They each enjoy having their own space, with hanging baskets for books and other diversions.
Each compartment is 6 by 3 feet to suit standard RV bunk dimensions. Children enjoy curtains for privacy and individual lamps for before-bed reading.

At the back of the bus, the master bedroom features a king-sized bed with plenty of overhead storage and a built-in closet. A mini split heater/air conditioner is hung above the shiplap "headboard" for temperature control, and there's an additional unit at the front of the bus.

With a sleek white and chrome exterior and a sophisticated and elegant white interior, this comfortable, peaceful home just happens to be portable.
