Hi, I’m Chris. Around February of 2013 I decided to build a camper van from a 2004 Chevy Express passenger van.
Did I have any construction experience? Nope.
Did I have any electrical experience? Nope.
Plumbing? Woodworking? Basic experience with hand tools? Nope, none of that.
Eager and willing to learn? YES. And that’s all it took.
2 years and almost 9 months later, my camper van was finished.
I had an unusual set of circumstances that prolonged the amount of time it took for me to finish the van; it just goes to show you that anything is possible if you’re willing to work hard enough for it.
My van is pretty cool. I can:
- Cook in it
- Shower in it
- Sleep in it
- Work in it
- Keep food cold (and frozen!) in it
- Watch movies on a projection screen in it
Neat, right? I can actually live in my van. And I don’t mean camp, I mean live—in comfort! So that’s what I’m going to show you how to do. I’ll show you how to turn a van into a home. It’s tiny living to the extreme. It’s living sustainably and comfortably. It’s taking the normal way of living and turning it on its head. And it’s going to be fun!
