Planning My Van Conversion
Before starting any work on the van I need to plan as much as possible.
Instead of trying to remember everything, I found the best way to plan is to write/draw it in a book.
What i want in my van
- Sofa Bed
- Gas hob
- Instant water heater
- Power supply
- Solar Panel
- Water pump
These are the main items i need for my van conversion.
Once I knew what I wanted I needed to think were to put it all.
I spent so many hours just sitting in the back of my van planning where it will all go. There is much to think about, my mind would just wonder in to space trying to take it all in. Breaking it all down in to stages help and then didn’t seem like it was going to take forever.
So my tips before starting to build would be
- Plan loads and loads
- Write/draw everything down on paper (it will help to remember)
- Dont PANIC. It might seem like you have taken on something too big to complete but breaking it down in to stages will help.
- Always keep pen/pencil and paper in the van. New ideas will constantly come to mind.
- Lastly. Enjoy every moment of the build.
