Jessie Lipskin wanted to combine her love of travel and homes into one, starting with a 1966 Greyhound Commuter Bus. She spent the next few years transforming it into her dream home on wheels. "I love DIY, however, I donít have experience with plumbing, electrical, carpentry needed for this project. The big challenge was that it was very different from working on a home that's fixed in one location. I constantly had to account for movement, on top of that the angles of the bus and slanted style windows made it challenging to design the best possible layout and curved woodworking. Levels were useless as the bus incline changes depending on location, it was all about calculating angles. This added a lot of time onto the project," Lipskin told Bored Panda.

Architects designed two of the principal dining rooms to flank an octagonal court, surmounted by a dome with a giant central oculus to let in light. Only fragments have survived, but that technique was to be copied extensively, eventually ending up as a fundamental feature of Christian art: the apse mosaics that decorate so many churches in Rome, Ravenna, Sicily and Constantinople.
