The project

 

We wanted to refit this Viscount caravan as a mobile office or business.

We paid about $1000 for the van, but it needed a lot of work. We spent about $5000 doing it up in the end.

We completely gutted the van and started again.

We put in a new floor, a new purpose-built kitchen and new lights and blinds. We also created a unique decor with white walls, dark wood and wallpaper features.

Your office looks awesome-amazing what you can do with a van! Great job 👏 

can I ask what timber did you use for the base of the bed frame in your van. And the sizing of that timber? Cause I like it👍
Cheers,
