So! If you haven't been following my stories, you'll be clueless to my van conversion! In truth, it took way longer than I thought. So far we have added skylights, bonded a window to the sliding door, fitted 3 removable back seats (we may only use two now). All batons are down ready for cladding. We've fully insulated it and added ply to the floor to get it ready for the floorboards. We have been tackling the electrics at the moment, making sure we got the right size cables and all the wiring is right. And so much more that I can't even remember!
If there is anyone considering such a build I say go for it, it can be daunting, hard to get your head around at times and well... a shock to your bankcard sometimes. But if someone else can do it, then so can you. I think that's been my motto the past fewyears when trying new things, tackling new tasks, using new tools or whatever comes up in life including DIY at home, artwork, any new creative skill set and even the van build.
There would be a lot of things I would do differently if I were to do it again, mainly the order. I've been putting electrics off for so long because I didn't understand it, but I've had to go back on myself and snake wires all under the work I've already done. It's not taken too much time away but still a teary exercise :'( I'm reaching out to other van dwellers, van lifers, van builders for inspiration - I wonder how long did it take for your build? Or if in progress far along are you so far? Biggest regret and greatest accomplishment? I'm really keen to know so feel free to comment below your experiences/thoughts!
We go to Amsterdam on the 30th for my friends 30th, so 4 days to get this good enough for a mattress in the back!
