Today’s Feature Friday – Sloth High Five!

The Sloth High Five skoolie, or the “Up” Bus as it’s known, is one of the most easily recognizable-at-a-glance skoolies around thanks to its unique paint job that mimics the house that travels through the sky in Pixar’s “Up”. We personally loved the tale, a love story of a different kind that reminds us it’s never too late to dream and explore and make things happen.

But a cool paint job isn’t the only thing this skoolie has going for it. There’s lots more to discover beyond the green, brown, yellow, blue, and pink. Keep reading to learn more about this adventurous tiny home on wheels!

A LIVING ROOM WITH A DISAPPEARING TV

By far one of the coolest features on the bus is the giant TV that disappears into a built-in sideboard in the living area. Not only is it rare to see a television this large in a skoolie, but to watch it magically disappear is pretty cool. In fact, this space is adaptable enough that they were able to host a Superbowl party this year with nine people! Having a TV that can be stowed away means they still have access to the windows and didn’t need to wall off an entire area, keeping the space open and light when the TV isn’t in use.

THE COOLEST LITTLE RETRO STOVE

This little retro green range fits so perfectly in this space it’s almost too much. We love their kitchen, from the geometric print covered fridge to the butcher block counters, but the stove is one of our favorite design details in their build. I fast, that’s an area where @slothhighfive really shines – the little details.

THAT LIVED-IN VIBE

One of the most attractive parts of this skoolie is that you can actually imagine living comfortably in it. While attractive and well-designed, it’s also just incredibly homey and has a “lived-in” vibe that we love. Like this bed – you can totally imagine just rolling out of bed here and walking down the hall to make coffee, right?

CLASSY STORAGE SPACE

Clever and creative storage is a must in tiny homes, and this is storage done right. When you can hide storage in plain sight with attractive solutions like bins and baskets and totes, it’s always a plus. They do double duty, being both decorative and functional. We love this storage wall with the bins that blend into the decor while holding a ton of stuff!

DEDICATION TO A THEME

Let’s just take a moment to appreciate the dedication to their “Up” theme. From the paint job to this sign on the front to the photo of the two main characters in the bedroom, Sloth High Five used their inspiration liberally throughout the build and decor. They also add quite a few references throughout their Instagram to the film. As a matter of fact, in many of the shots where the TV is seen, you can actually see the movie on the screen! Now THAT’S some attention to detail!

THE COOLEST LITTLE HAMMOCK SWING

We love this hammock swing because A.) we have one in the same place and B.) it’s about the cutest one we’ve ever seen. The white tassels with the black netting? Adorable. But this guy is hugely functional too, adding one more seat to their living area.
