This blog is connected to our YouTube channel where we publish a weekly vlog. Together, these platforms chronicle our progress on converting a school bus into our tiny home. They are a reflection of our journey into tiny living, which means the ups and downs of all that is progress.

This is our first time doing anything like this. We’re definitely beginners, and we don’t know where we’re going next. But we want to experience the freedom of simplicity; we may want to travel, and ultimately we want to learn and grow.

We want to be real with you. This doing things differently stuff isn’t always easy, but we hope that our journey towards living tiny inspires you all the same.


I’m a mom, but I don’t like saying that’s my job because I feel like in reality it’s a relationship that requires hard work, less sleep, and physical labor. So, sure, it’s a job, and I’m a stay at home mom. I’m also a writer, amateur photographer, teacher, and student in Goddard College’s MFA in creative writing program. I live in Tulsa, Oklahoma with my husband and two children.

You can also find me blogging at alanajamison.ink. Or on Instagram posting as @alanajamison or @_thejamisons. Or on YouTube vlogging about my family’s transition into tiny living.

Feel free to contact me about anything you feel like. I’d love to help out, and get to know you.

Currently, I work for a chiropractor, and I’m super passionate about my family’s health and well-being. I’m also an aspiring artist, recreational climber, and DIYer. I particularly love working with my hands. Sometimes I do graphic design projects for friends, and I like to draw and make graphic art.

You can find me on Instagram posting as @jeremiah_jamison and of course you’ll see my face on @_thejamisons, too.

Feel free to contact me if you want to hang, maybe grab a coffee, and go climbing. I’d love to hear from you.


Hi! My name’s Miriam. I’m two. I say “HI” to every body. I really love people. Monkey and Bunny are my favorite toys. I just got a new bike! I like to go to the bus anytime we’re outside, and I especially like to help out however I can. The bus already feels like home.






Hi! My name’s Lazarus, but you can call me Lars. I’m 15 months old. I started walking about 4 months ago, and already I run everywhere. I like pushing my big push toys around. Rocking on my rocking horse, and playing with my soccer ball. The bus thing is cool, but mostly, I like getting into Papa’s tool box.
