Some Guy Turned This Van Into A Self-Sufficient Motor Home

Imagine having a van and giving it a huge makeover into your dream home. With just a matter of time, in as little as 6 months, the instructable user “Making it there” was able to remodel this whole cargo van into a home. After traveling over to Portland, Oregon and finding the van of his dreams it was a little more work than you might expect but the results are phenomenal! Take a look below.

In order to create this transformation he first needed a layout of every step he would use to build the motor home.

“Making it there” designed a great basic form on how he wanted everything placed inside to suite his needs.

Here is the final 3D drawing of every detail he wanted to included inside his own motor home. It looks like this guy is great with a computer which can come in handy with a project like this.

He took some measurements to make sure everything was going to work to his plan. They had to be exact.

It was then time to mask the interior so he could use spray foam insulation to offer some comfort in the elements.

Large amounts of spray foam would keep him warm in the winters and cool in the summer months.

It only took a few minutes of spraying the foam and then it was time to remove the masking tape.

He then covered the wall of the van with some gorgeous wood that would allow fixtures to be mounted to.

With the walls up he placed a substrate on the floor to insulate before the finished floor was installed.

The flooring with the walls is where you start to notice the base of this project really come together.

Because he took measurements early, he was able to cut each piece in his workshop before installing them into the van. Proper planning makes everything easier.
