Sarah had been dreaming of a nomadic lifestyle since she was 14-years-old, but it took crashing her beloved JEEP to push her into making it a reality. With the insurance money from the accident, she was able to get a jumpstart on her school bus conversion.
Originally she thought of dealing with the lower bus height, but then had the brilliant idea to attach a boat to the roof in order to give her space. A lot of putty and FlexSeal later and her “Adobe Casita” tiny home was really coming together! Enjoy getting to meet her in the tour below.

Great thinking out of the box. Headroom where needed. I see you even spaced it fore/aft to gain some overhead storage as well. Nice!
Fisher Price toys had a camper van with an upside down boat on its top that my kids played with for many years in the 1980’s!
Love your bus; how it’s designed. Cactus bones? Tiles! Records. And of course, Bo!
