Well, the conversion is done and I am living in it!

Taking a nap at Pilot

I have kinda neglected the blog, as we've had to really churn out the whole conversion in just 2 weekends.

Tonight I moved out of my apartment for good and I'm now fulltiming in the van.  woo!   Tomorrow I have the day off but not sure what to do with myself.  Maybe go to the park and maybe read if its raining.  At least the clouds keep the temp down (if not the humidity)

Here are some build photos leading up to today.  Im happy with everything except the closet, which needs redone, as it isnt tall enough for my clothes  ;)  Maybe a cabinet for food storage will be on the menu for later.   Right now though, getting batteries is number one priority to run the fantastic fan vent and a direct fan.

I'm tall, this wont work! lol
The white paneling really opens it up
The pass thru door
Sink, need the plumbing and tanks though
The dresser is a sterilite 3 drawer container :)

Well that is the bulk of it.  I will probably be adding some changes and upgrades as the money trickles in.  No more house bills so shouldn't take long!

18 Days to go, and some progress!


Well I have taken things further, and will be out of here at the end of THIS month.  Last week, through much blood sweat and almost tears we completed a good bit of the van.  A couple mistakes means well have to go back in and put new cabinet facing (split them installing them incorrectly), but since they are just 3 bucks, no big deal.

Ill upload pics when i can get a decent connection (i think when i told frontier i was cancelling at the end of the month, they throttled my internet :\ )
