How to build/install a bed in a conversion DIY camper van

VAN DWELLING- the other side of tiny housing….

Steven Harrell from has been busy converting his new acquisition, a big ole white transport van (with full standing room!), into a portable dwelling- "The Grande Gringo"- or whatever name he ultimately lands on.

Alongside the SIX or so tiny houses you'll get to tour at our April 11th-13th Hands-On Building/Design Workshop in Memphis, TN (2014)….

-Steven will be bringing out this van he's been working on! Van Dwelling is a huge underground movement, and closely parallels tiny house living, naturally.

A GREAT Story on this subject, by the way, is the book "WALDEN ON WHEELS" which came out last year- I read it, and REALLY enjoyed it. Some great tips on small space efficiency and covert living.


  1. Thanks for the writeup! Here's a cool Facebook page that just mainly shows pics of folks getting out there, way out there via their vans.

    1. 2 days ago, I told about about Jim's WoodProfit course.

      I've spoken on the phone with Jim Morgan and I'm just
      blown away by his simple and effective strategy to
      make money using his basic woodworking skills.

      He started his woodworking business with NO capital,
      a few shop tools, and a lot of nerve, in a small
      10x20 foot space and grew it into a 1,400 space in
      the first few months while still remaining as a
      one-person business!
