The finished product is always so satisfying, but what did it take to get there? We’re sharing some of our behind-the-scenes progress photos of our van conversion below.
Setting out to convert a used Sprinter van, we knew it would be a lot of work, but also that we’d be in over our heads. With no carpentry experience, we were figuring out a lot along the way. Working our normal, full-time jobs meant that time dedicated to converting the van was restricted to Saturdays and Sundays (good-bye social life). And living in a Bay Area city meant parking was not easy or cheap, so the van was parked far away from our apartment. Weekday nights were dedicated to LOTS of youtube tutorials, and frustrating attempts to resolve our confusion. All in all, we’re very proud of what we managed to accomplish, and the experience gained along the way. The van conversion took five months, but would likely be much faster if we were to build a second van. Enjoy, and feel free to leave us questions/comments!
