Ryan Lovelace posted in his blog about the day he bought an old Chevy bus from 1948:
Late May 2012 – The day I bought Ophelia. The 1948 Chevy bus I found on craigslist that was described as, “Runs, Drives, Stops, Registered.” That was all I had to know.
Ryan has worked hard to refurbish Ophelia and has successfully turned her into his new rolling home.

As part of the refurbishment, Ryan added a bedroom pad to the top of the bus.

Ryan’s inspiration for redesigning Ophelia was a DIY bus from a 1979 book called Rolling Homes.

The finished interior of Ophelia looks stunning.
He also added a small antique stove.
