Woody The Van With A Wooden Roof Raise


Carly says John was the first van lifer she met. They fell in love pretty quickly, and she moved into his DIY rig. John admits that plenty changed when a girl moved in and needed a few more “luxuries” to live comfortably. But the DIY wooden roof raise was all for him, so he could stand upright inside!

The van “Woody” gets in name from all the reclaimed wood used to build out the interior. It has a convertible couch/bed situation and a compact kitchen. The couple just purchased a bus they are in the process of converting, so Woody will be for sale once they complete their new build.

The skylight adds some much-needed light inside.

They cut up a Tempurpedic mattress to make the couches that convert to a bed.

All the reclaimed wood makes this a super cozy build.

    Love how happy they are living a minimal life. This is something more people should aspire to try. Nothing fancy, just functional and their contentment is golden!
