Surfer Ryan Lovelace and His Girlfriend Turned This Vintage Bus into a Stunning Home on Wheels

If I had the time on my hands, I’d be doing this. Surfer Ryan Lovelace bought an old vintage bus, and converted it into a wonderful living space with the help of his girlfriend and his buddies. I’m so jealous!

Surfer Ryan Lovelace bought this old vintage bus, with plans to turn it into a home on wheels…

He started by cutting a huge hole in the rear to make space for a bedroom loft.

Then he welded a support frame for the bed…

For the loft, he used custom recycled windows to look out of…

And he had some help from his friends…

The walls were made from recycled wood … actually from George Lucas’s old house!

His girlfriend painted the floor with a custom pattern…

… and the inspiration for the floor came from someplace special.

They built a tiny functional kitchen…

She’s looking pretty good inside…

The finished product is truly something worth seeing.

That’s such an amazing labor of love! They worked so hard on this bus, and now they get to drive it to all their surfing spots. If I ever get fired from my job, now I know exactly what I’m going to do with my time…
