Over 18 months we converted a used carpet fitters van into our dream home
The first day – Van came fitted with a raised floor & rough ply lining which all needed to be stripped out.
Getting stuck in removing the raised floor
Ready with our blank canvas – now the real work can start!
Letting some light in – we cut two holes in the roof for the windows.
Prep work before the insulation went in.
Seemingly never-ending insulation…
Insulating from top to bottom with a full vapour barrier.
First things first – we needed somewhere to sleep.
Testing out our future bathroom facilities…
Starting to take shape, the bathroom walls went up.
Sealing everything off in the bathroom.
Dreaming of no longer cooking on a camping stove.
Building the kitchen framework.
Getting our first taste of pallet wood love.
Starting to feel more like home.
We needed a place to put our stuff…
More pallet wood!
The joy of working with vans quirky shapes…
Ready for the first coat of paint.
Several coats later…
Our first night enjoying the finished van at Stonehenge.
