We’re finally firing on all cylinders! We bought a van on Saturday 28th April and we have had a few fun weeks and weekends in it as a bit of a test run.
It is a Renault Master 2.5 litre van – which used to be a passenger ambulance, it has spent life as a Taxi mini bus and we have welcomed it with open arms as a partially done project. It has had all the seats removed and a very basic conversion started to make it into a campervan. We are going to continue the conversion and make it our home!
We have handed in notice on our rented house and sold most of our belongings...we are currently sleeping on a mattress on the floor and have little more than sofa, fridge and freezer (everything else has gone and I can’t wait to move into the van.
We officially move into the van on 27th June...just one month to go!
We are taking our ‘before’ photographs tonight and jobs which we hope to be done by the end of the next couple of weeks include:
· Curtains – essential for privacy and a homely feel.
· New floor – easier to clean.
· Painting the woodwork – to brighten the place up.
· Kitchen unit completion – for normality and somewhere to store our food/utensils etc.
