Meet Frye — he and his dog have been living in his Volkswagen Westfalia now for four years. He gutted the van and turned the interior into a rustic cabin, complete with unfinished wood floors and a cast iron wood stove.
Frye has mainly used his home on wheels to explore the woods of the West Coast, getting closer to nature and learning to become his own handy-man. He added a cool wooden roof extension to give about 10 feet of head space in the van, which really opens up the space.

Frye’s Van Life in the Woods with His Dog
From this angle you wouldn’t know this was even a van!
He cooks on the wood stove and has a 5 gallon water tank.
Solar power lets him charge his camera batteries.
What do you think of the roof addition?
