Campervan Conversion: what not to forget

To say that creating your own home on wheels is a chaotic process is an understatement. You have to create a list of just about everything you would ever need, it’s a house nonetheless!

Doing Dishes in a Campervan: Cold vs Warm Water

Though we haven’t lived in our campervan that long just yet, we do have to say that doing the dishes is certainly not the most fun part.

But it doesn’t stop with just clothing; your pots, pans and other kitchen…

Campervan conversion: how to build a sofa bed

A comfortable bed makes a house a home. Or should we say makes a campervan a home? In our campervan conversion, building the bed was the most important part. Everything else we built and included in our RV was built around our comfortable nest. A good night’s sleep is the most precious thing, and since we will be living in our campervan full time, there was no way in which we’d compromise on that!       Designing the layout  Before we bought our van, we had some ideas of the layout and knew which items we’d like to include…
