Steve and Audra had camped in tents for years when Steve brought up the idea of converting a van. It took a bit for Audra to warm up to it, but eventually, they bought a high-roof Ford Transit and started a 2-plus-year journey to complete the inside.
They wanted to convert the van on a budget and used a lot of reclaimed materials — like the discarded decking that became their ceiling — in order to keep costs down. What’s your favorite part of their conversion?

Steve and Audra opted for extended kitchen cabinets, which is not commonly seen in most van conversions. This design choice allowed them to have more storage space and a larger countertop area, making meal prep and cooking more comfortable and efficient while on the road.
Notice the cat cutout where the litter box hides!

For such a small van — there is much that I like — such as the very deep cabinets for storage, the very cool ceiling, really nice decor in such a limited space tho I didn’t wasn’t able to see more. Love the cat door — wonderful. Good job for these folks who had a limited budget!!
