This one-of-a-kind Cedar and metal tiny home was built by Drew, a creative and driven designer with a passion for sustainable living in style. Most of the materials were reclaimed from a variety of resources and recycled into ideal use. It’s fully solar-powered by a 1200 watt Renogy system, three 170 amp-hour Lithium Iron batteries, and a 3000-watt inverter/charger.

The interior is laid out like a luxury suite with healthy plants adorning the walls, operatable skylights to brighten the space, and custom artwork for a unique touch. The functional bathroom holds a toilet and full shower with a high-efficiency head and dampener valve. The kitchen has abundant storage with an induction cooktop and built-in wall oven aside from a gorgeous 24×48 tile for the backsplash.

The most outstanding feature of this DIY build is the seamless drop-down deck and fold-out awning. Drew can have a beautiful porch with shaded seats and endless views in a matter of minutes!

This is the story of Route Del Sol, an all-electric, solar-powered motorhome. This DIY motorhome build is very likely the most powerful solar-powered campervan in the world today and this is how it came to be.

Since that very first exchange with the ticket booth operator, I have grown much better at explaining just what it is I am driving. In the most technical way possible (for me) I exclaim that, this is a fully electric 2010 International EStar, it’s an ex-Pacific Gas & Electric owned cargo van converted into a DIY solar-powered electric campervan.”

This is Exploring Alternatives’ Mat & Danielle’s new, DIY van conversion that’s based on a high top 2015 Ford Transit Van.

They’ve been living, traveling, and working out of their own van conversion for a while now, and have recently had the opportunity to upgrade to a customized van conversion which you’re getting to see right here and now. Yes, they designed and built it themselves and I think you might find this to be one of the most beautiful and most well thought out van conversions out there. Let me know what you think in the comments.
