The ultimate three birth adventure mobile built for garden design and landscaping experts, Mark & Catherine…
We love creating one of a kind spaces and providing our customers with a cosy haven that they can take with them anywhere. Working with Mark and Catherine of Lucy Frank Garden Design, we were given the opportunity to build innovative new features and together came up with a layout and design that is spacious, stylish and luxurious.
The project started just before the UK’s first COVID-19 lockdown, meaning our initial design and planning couldn’t be done face to face. This presented in itself a new challenge as each of our conversions is so personal and designed specifically to reflect our customer’s individual needs. Thanks to the wonders of email, Pinterest, Dropbox and Zoom we were able to regularly keep in touch and plan out all the details with Mark and Catherine at every step of the process.
“Simon and Dee came up with an few different layout designs that suited our brief perfectly, we could never of imagined the clever final design.
Once work commenced we received regular email updates and photos showing the build. Simon & Dee were able to accommodate our wish list and were able to advise us of any necessary changes and ideas we would have never of thought of. Wild Van’s customer service is second to none. We felt we were truly looked after throughout the whole experience, it is obvious they are passionate about the work they do.”– Customers Mark & Catherine
Using a combination of new and reclaimed materials, handcrafted in our Wild Van workshop we created a comfortable homely interior with a bright clean finish.
With a host of high-spec features the space feels more like a country cottage retreat than a campervan. The onboard wood burner beautifully crafted by Salamander Stoves in Devon keeps the space lovely and warm. You can sit and relax on the comfy seats that also convert into a bench sofa/single bed, custom upholstered in natural linen fabric created by Zoe Glencross. The conversion has not just one but two onboard hot showers! A cleverly hidden underfloor shower tray used with clip on shower curtain transforms the van into a private bathroom, or for days out at the beach there is the outdoor shower point accessible from the garage.
