Woodworker’s Epic Ambulance Conversion

Cole and Shae are an awesome couple who live full-time in their converted ambulance! Cole works as a woodworker, transforming reclaimed wood he finds or is gifted on the road, and turning it into stunning jewelry and cutting boards. Shae has a “normal” job in medical billing, and she can do it remotely.

They needed a rig that could support full-time remote work and a wood shop, and the ambulance was perfect! All the storage compartments allowed Cole to use an exterior one for all his tools and lumber, and a clever bed-plus-dinette set-up inside gives Shae a spot to work. Ambulance conversions are becoming one of my favorite tiny spaces! What do you think?

  • Cole and Shae wanted to travel more and be able to visit family more frequently. They’re also on the lookout for where they’d like to settle down more permanently.
  • They chose an ambulance for its square interior and abundant storage cabinets, both inside and out.
  • The L-shaped kitchen countertop is made from a black walnut slab.
  • The ceiling is beetle-kill pine from Colorado, an eco-friendly choice.
  • Cole creates beautiful jewlery and cutting boards from reclaimed wood he finds on his travels, while Shae works in medical billing 9-5 from the ambulance.
