I will be documenting the build process in chronological order. We used 3M spray contact adhesive to glue it to the floor.This means the pictures will progress correctly, and make sense. We tried coming up with different clever ways of attaching a roof rack...I have attempted to catalog the build process of the van, in hopes that it will be useful in some sense, to someone, somewhere. Photos shot using my i Phone 5S, with an olloclip 3-in-1 lens. Check out the video tour, on You Tube: Contact me via Twitter, @voidqk (pronounced "void cookie"). We attached it to the ceiling using 3M spray contact adhesive. I decided to use a layer of Reflectix under the plywood.Even at the very least of curing your boredom, temporarily, while you sit in your cubicle and pretend to work. It probably doesn't provide much insulation, but I figured it would at least help fill in the gaps between the ridges on the floor.Mitch Hedberg (24 February 1968 – 30 March 2005) was an American stand-up comic known for his odd subject matter, subdued delivery and memorable routines that often consisted of a string of one-line non sequiturs. My name is Sean, and I'm a 32 year old software developer. I couldn't blame my situation on the idea that I had to pay my bills, because all my bills were under my complete control. And what is this nagging dreadful feeling of death and doom that I feel looming over me, all the time? " "Hell, if I was travelling all the time, I could buy food fresh, every other day..." "What about using the restroom? Maybe not as clean, but not the end of the world..." Slowly, my subconscious mind, sorting out all these little details... I didn't see what the big deal was, but I suppose it was pretty easy for me -- I just watched, for the most part. First, the hole for the wiring for the solar panels. Plus it gave my Dad practice in cutting holes in the van (which he was a nervous wreck over). There would be 4 switches on the driver side (floor LED, bed LED, sink LED, and DC outlet). This would mean the fan would pull air from the back, towards the front, (hopefully) circulating the air much better.
In order to realize this dream -- and, honestly, just to have some fun too -- I've decided to sell all my being in a cubicle, all day? This story starts in September of 2014, when I began to internalize the realization that my college loan -- my last piece of debt -- would be paid off in December. Her solution: Sell/give/toss everything, buy an RV, and travel the United States, with her husband and children. With the impending New Year existential crisis, and the seed of minimalism and travelling planted by my sister, I began to explore the idea a little more seriously. but damn it all, if it won't nag you, in the background... In order to drill it, we wedged a 2x4 with a wooden block on top, so my Dad would have something to drill into. It's thinner than regular insulation, and fit perfectly, without compression. Additional lines were needed to run from the batteries to the solar panels and Fan-Tastic Fan. The refrigerator would be hard-wired to power directly. I would need to fix up the house, list it, and sell it. So we decided to cut open a rear vent in the back door.But it also means that if you're looking for one particular piece of information (e.g., how to setup a solar panel system), you will have to hunt down the appropriate tid-bits of information. but couldn't figure out a way that was really satisfying. I bit the bullet, and bought the Euro Campers Van Tech H3 Style 2 Bar Aluminum Roof Rack.
The day my father dreaded: cutting holes in the roof of my new $33k van.
