A quick search under the hashtags #vanlife and #tinyhouse offers a glimpse from people, many of whom are millennials, who feel quaint and affordable living is preferable to a house with a mortgage.

In one such video, TikTok user @courtandnate reveals how a simple van can be turned into a gorgeous home with a view.

Another from @kamryn.law shows how a basic camper can get a major upgrade with a proper home makeover.

But some tiny homes were built from the ground up. A video from @jenniferswavely shows the progress she and her husband made after gutting the inside of a sprinter van.

A later video from the same account details all the unique touches that turned the van into a unique and cozy abode.

Although excess space isn’t a luxury in such homes, many users have found ways to maximize their living space.

In another video from courtandnate, only 60 seconds is needed to go from “bed mode to table mode.”

While transforming a van is impressive, turning a massive bus into a home is even cooler. That’s exactly what user @happyhomebodies did.

From the inside, you’d think you were in a cabin on the beach, complete with a huge walk-in shower and wood-burning stove.

If you’re not tied down, it’s never too late to ditch the apartment and live in a van down by the river.
