Never underestimate a man with a van and a plan, especially if he has a cute dog by his side. DIY extraordinaire Dipa Vasudeva Das has reformed an old van into an amazing tiny home on wheels, complete with a wood-burning fireplace and plenty of space-saving features.
Dipa Vasudeva Das started his amazing renovation project by adding a custom-made frame to the interior. This frame would not only set the shape of the interior, but would allow for multiple ingenious space-saving features throughout the design. Once he installed the frame, he used light wood paneling to cover the interior and to custom make the van’s built-in furniture.
The interior space is multi-functional, built with a platform that works as a dining table, bed or work center. There’s also an extra table with seating underneath the floorboards of the van, which makes for great entertainment options. Adding to the cosy interior is the wood-burning fireplace and skylight, which lets in plenty of natural light.
Along with his competence in building, the adventurous DIY-er also proved quite adept at wood carving. The van’s sliding wooden doors are cut out so that he can fold one part down to speak to visitors without, say, wearing pants – if he so chooses. Under the sliding doors, Vasudeva Das built two long pull-out drawers for extra storage space.
Another feature built in to the van renovation is an outdoor deck that folds down for entertaining. When folded back up, it pulls double duty as bicycle storage.
