This is the complete school bus (skoolie) to tiny house conversion timelapse showing our transformation of a rare 1987 Gillig Phantom school bus only made on the West Coast from 1986 to 1992 and most have been crushed/scrapped. We bought it in November of 2017. We had no idea what we were doing but we figured it out and pushed through and finished it in late 2019. Building this Skoolie and documenting it on Youtube has lead us to leave our jobs and pursue an alternative American Dream, for better or worse!! Thanks for watching and thanks for your support.

If you're wondering about our dear friend Andrew you can read about him here: https://www.gofundme.com/f/stand-with-lee. RIP Andrew Lee 05/26/2019. I never would have made it home with our bus without the help of Andrew, and it was one of many gifts he gave me in life and death. Miss you buddy.
