PICKING UP OUR VW BUS
The first house we looked at (and ended up renting) in Beaufort, South Carolina, had a horse in the back yard and a VW bus parked right in front. It was as though the universe was letting us know we were headed in the right direction.
A little over a year later, we were given a horse who needed a good home. He stayed on the farm where we lived. Our design business was slowly growing and we began to really appreciate the little things in life.
Just three years after becoming Mr. and Mrs. Lill, we found an authentic ’78 VW camper bus in beautiful Asheville, NC. It was a wonderful moment in time, finally driving along in our old-school hippie van. We named him Moksha (the state of non-ego) and were immediately put to the test. 🙂
One thing after the other started showing signs of wear and tear. Since then we’ve replaced so many parts, it has been truly a labor of love. Take a look at his interior makeover process here.
