Finally got a little visitor!
For my latest adventure, I got a little travel buddy happy to escape in the school holidays. We headed back up to the North Norfolk...
My van and I
Starting on September 17th I begin my epic journey around Great Britain and its Isles. I have no end date just a beginning. So get ready for scenic views, epic trails and van life stories. Share in my adventure and see how I learn to leave my crazy London life behind and live in a tiny 15 square metre metal box on wheels. Follow my route and van-life lifestyle, including great places to visit, where to stop on the road and even van kitchen recipe ideas.
Always measure twice, cut once!
This is the first stage of battening ready for cladding. Between the battens, electrics and plumbing can start to be laid out.
Every part of this van is curved or bent so fitting cladding was a much longer job than expected! Every plank in this photo took at least three cuts!
I've tried recycling as much as possible with this van. Although the appliances are new, the wood is old. This kitchen worktop is made from recycled scaffold boards from another project.
There's no compromise on sleep in the van with this full size double bed. Sleep is the best form of recovery after an active day on the ocean or up a mountain! Storage is maximised using every last inch of space under and alongside the bed.
A large sofa, removable table and multiple storage areas make this space super versatile and yet comfy as I can fully stretch out and watch the world around me.
Follow my progress from the first window to panelling, furniture building and eventually becoming ready for the open road.
