Schoolbus Home in Santa Cruz, California

Thanks so much Lloyd for everything you’ve done to stimulate my passions for freelance building & creating cozy living spaces. Good to grow older together through your writings. Here is my ’59 Chevy bus that I did in ’81. I lived in it for a long time, now it’s in my backyard in Santa Cruz, being a choice shelter for family and friends.

I recently finished the sauna and the WC. (Who needs a driver seat and steering wheel?) Toilet is plumbed in to the house sewer. Besides the bus being used as a guest quarters, it’s also my regular kick-back space.

Right now i am in the middle of converting the interior of my modest 130-year-old Victorian here in Santa Cruz. I grew up in the Netherlands and did quite a bit of traveling in the region. I decided to try for a farmhouse-feel interior. The 42 hand-hewn beams arrived from Pennsylvania a couple of years ago. I’m not rushing it. Half the fun is trying to figure it all out anyway.

Anyway Lloyd, thanks for responding, I’ve been a big fan of all your writings, from the get go!

Looking forward to saying hi next time you’re at Bookshop Santa Cruz, introducing your latest book!

    Rolf/Lloyd…beautiful. Would love to see more photos of interior, and photos of your home as you “graduate” to farmhouse.

    Thank you
