Now that we had our wheels… Our first step was to rid the van of the purple shag nightmare.
Purple isn’t really our color to begin with, but for real
who the hell could live in all of that purple?
What we needed was a blank canvas.
Commence demolition phase!
It felt so good taking some aggression out on those shitty cabinets. Megan whacked those out in no time at all. Clark drew the short straw and soon found out that the majority of the purple fuzz was put down with gallons of industrial strength glue. Gobs and gobs of glue covered every square inch. He wasn’t sure if the end would ever come, but after countless hours of tearing, smashing and cursing the van was finally gutted from head to toe. The only thing left from the van’s purple past was the pair of dice that we held on to for good luck. We are still haunted to the day by the occasional purple fuzzy though.
The original build outfitted the van with the 12v electrical and plumbing systems. Both seemed to be in working order and we are far from experts in those categories so we decided to leave them in place. The bathroom and fridge both have intricate inner working so we left them in their original spots, but luckily we liked the location of them.
Being a bull in a china shop is the easy part of any construction project. We are now left with a blank canvas to start designing and fitting out our dream home.
