PICKING UP OUR VW BUS
The first house we looked at in South Carolina, remarkably 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…so we moved in. The house was a simple farm cottage with no a/c or heat, but our simple life taught us so much.
Amazingly, a little over a year later, we were given a horse who needed a good home. We spent our days on the farm, working on building our small design company. Little by little, we gained more clients, until poof, we were in business.
Just three years after becoming Mr. and Mrs. Lill, another piece of our vision came true. We found an authentic ’78 VW camper bus for sale in beautiful Asheville, North Carolina. It was a wonderful moment in time, finally driving along in our old-school hippie bus. We named him Moksha (the state of non-ego) and almost immediately, we were put to the test.
One thing after the other began showing signs of wear, tear and need for replacement, but we approached each repair as an education. Since then, we’ve replaced so many parts and it has truly been a labor of love.
