After watching a few of my favorite Utubers, many have said that the path to building out a van is difficult, costly and time consuming. Without a proper space and enough time, I’ve had my van one year and it’s still a work in progress. The good news is that I finally found a workshop to use and it’s not far from the house and decided to have the RV shop finish the shell and install the electric. I also have the time to finish the build, since I will look for an apartment to live in for the winter and into spring. The bad news is that I have to move in a few weeks, find a place to live, then move my stuff into it because the van wasn’t finished on time.
It’s time to get organized, and stop dilly dallying around and now that I’ve convalesced for a week, it’s time to move on. I am still waiting for my quote from the RV shop and hope that he sees my vision. In the meantime, I am going through my things again to do more purging. I am so glad that my real estate agent made me get rid of so much stuff a couple of months ago. It will be a lot easier this time around, and when I finally get into the van, I’ll just have a few items to put into storage. Yes, I going to put some furniture and kitchen and sewing stuff into storage. It doesn’t make sense to get rid of everything and then have to buy it back if I decide to find a permanent home down the road. I’ll just have to find a small space at a good price.
Moving forward again! I expect to see more hiccups as time goes on, but at least I’m prepared. Would I have done it differently? Probably, because I didn’t have the space and thought I would be able to do everything myself, which set me back. So many lessons learned and many more to come.
