Using Recycled Materials To Create Their First Van

This awesome couple set out to build their first van primarily out of recycled materials — and they succeeded! “Woody” taught them a lot about what a van needed to be a practical and functional full-time living space. After living in him for about 6 months, they bounced around other tiny spaces and ultimately decided to build recycled vans as a job!

To date, the couple has transformed 15 vans, and we’re going to show you a few of those builds in the next few posts. First, enjoy this photo tour of Woody!

    This looks so vintage and unique. I love it! All the warmth and coziness of home and still room to move around. Really nice!
