Van Conversion Shower Updates + Headliner Shelf

We are officially calling Austin our “home base” now as we try to finish and move into our van! Over the last few days we have worked a ton of hours trying to make some big progress and have accomplished a few big things for the van conversion: shower walls are installed, we built and installed our headliner shelf, installed the battery isolator, and started to cut and stain butcher block. We still have a lot to do, but we’re inching closer! Check out our previous van build updates here!

about us

Hi y’all! We’re Adam, Kathryn, and Kona, an adventurous married couple (+ pup!) living on the road in our self-converted sprinter van! You can often find us driving all around the US and Canada, scoping out the best coffee shops, eating tacos and ice cream (we’re a 5+ taco and 2+ scoop household), and enjoying nature.
