This weekend, I have been working on the next round of updates to my Sprinter van (tiny house on wheels).  After 18 months of being on the road and experiencing a lot of different scenarios, I am excited to be implementing my thoughts and ideas.  

As you can see to the photo at the top of this article, I finished my custom console by installing all of the electrical connections.  I can now set my phone and GPS units in their holders, charge them, and have a cool drink from my Yeti water bottle.  Life is good... 

Last week, we got the basic infrastructure done (building the walls, insulation, ceiling, etc).  So, this weekend, I am able to start building the "fun stuff" where things are starting to come together.  I finished the bulkhead wall (between the front cabin and living area) and installed a sliding window.  This will really help with heating and cooling in the cabin while driving and also provide a much more finished living space in the rear of the van with the addition of the wall.  This wall has an A/C outlet and storage cabinets.  

On the wall by the window, I am putting a desk in place (18" deep), and my refrigerator will be placed near the bulkhead wall.  I am putting up storage cabinets along this entire wall and a custom base cabinet to the left of the desk.  The desk/storage unit connects to my custom chair that I built last week.  

I will be heading out for the Smoky Mountains soon to enjoy all of these new updates and explore what I want to adjust or build next.

Follow me on my St. Francois Mountain Platinum Histograph Heirloom Fine Art Print Project where I am photographing the St. Francois Mountains that were formed by volcanic and intrusive activity 1.5 billion years ago.  By comparison, the Appalachians started forming about 460 million years ago, and the Rockies a mere 140 million years ago.
