Bob has always loved buses since he was 8 years old, in particular, Gillig school buses. He’s driven some 350 buses in his life, and now he’s living in his 1977 Gillig that he DIY-ed into a tiny house complete with a full recording studio with toilet vocal booth.
Retired from the schooner industry, he used his boat-building know-how to create a stunning home with self-planed locust wood. He wants to use his later years to enjoy traveling the US and seeing what he didn’t while “having careers” and “raising a family.” Too cool!
Enjoy the video tour from Tiny Home Tours below. Love this build!

He kept the cab original, and the retro vibe is great.
This really is one stylish bus!
He uses the bathroom as an awesome vocal booth!

I like it. I like the bus, I like the man. And I love a wood stove.
This is one of the coolest builds I’ve seen! An elegant and purposeful design. Hope to see Robert on the road someday so I can here more about the bus and his life and works!
